A CUP OF PEACE
We can so easily fall into despair, worry, and doubt. Just look around! Everywhere we look, there are tragedies, no matter which way we turn, troubles find us on every corner. Worries entangle us, and keep us bound. And if that’s not enough, our own fears, and insecurities are tagging along. How do we find PEACE in the midst of our chaotic world?
PEACE is a state of tranquility, or a moment of quietness.
The type of PEACE I am talking about here, is not temporal, or conditional, as the world gives, the type of PEACE I am talking about HERE, is eternal, everlasting, the type that never runs dry.
A word of encouragement helps, but it can only last for so long, conversation is nice, compliment, but it doesn’t last, or fulfill our soul. What are we to do?
It is imperative that we boost our spirit with a CUP of PEACE this morning. A cup that lasts through troubles, a cup that fills the very soul, a cup that never runs dry!
Here is a boost of scriptures to keep your mind at PEACE, and your spirit alive through the day, that have helped me on my journey.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you, I do not give it to you, as this world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.” ( John 14:27)
” Do not be anxious about anything, but with prayer and supplication bring your request unto God, and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will overshadow all of your fears” (Philippians 4:6)
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.” (Galatians 5:22)
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7)
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7)
If today, you are facing troubles, do not fear. If today your mountains are blocking you, do not move, if obstacles are covering you, stand still and see the deliverance of the LORD!
FOR GOD did not give us ( as a gift) a spirit of fear, but POWER to shut the mouth of a LION, and walk in FAITH.
Father GOD, you have not given me a spirit of fear, but of POWER, LOVE and a sound mind. Help me to not fear, but put my trust in you. Your have provided a way out for me, help me to focus on you, and not on the troubles around me. As I lay my fears, worries, anxieties, at your feet, I am able to walk according to your POWER, riches, and Glory. Thank you for your PEACE that surpasses all my understanding, and covers my every worry, thank you for that PEACE that never runs dry, in JESUS NAME, AMEN!
