God’s Promise of Peace

God’s Promise of Peace

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Just thinking about the challenges we face, our lives quickly can be gripped with anxiety. All the while, we may face questions about our finances, families, or health.

The Christmas season has its own unique kind of stress. This busy time often is packed with events, functions, and special services that can drive us to exhaustion, and a feeling of being overwhelmed.

In the midst of this hectic atmosphere, the Bible reminds us that Jesus came to give us peace. In fact, the Bible tells us that He is the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

This is a kind of peace that the world cannot give us. We cannot work to achieve it. We cannot get it by reading books. We cannot acquire this peace by accumulating more wealth. We cannot earn it by having a good job. We can only get this peace by knowing Jesus. By walking and fellowshipping with Him. By being transformed by His Spirit. By trusting in Him, and serving Him with our lives.

Right now, are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you feel stress or burdens? Are you worried about your health or finances? Do you face difficult questions that need to be resolved? Whatever your situation, the promises of Jesus are true for you. Commit every problem and burden to Him. Be honest. Remember the words of Scripture, to cast “all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him.” Why? “He cares about you” (1 Peter 5:7 AMP).

Let Him give you His peace. This peace can’t be explained. In fact, it is so wonderful that it “surpasses all understanding” (Philippians 4:7).
