Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers –
I just came out of 3 am prayer and the Lord began to speak to me about today’s post. I sat on the bed and could hear the Holy Spirit whisper, “Be at peace…”. These three simple words were what I needed to reassure me of about my day. I spent so much time worrying; worrying about the future, worrying about the effects of my past, just worrying about things I cannot control. It’s so easy to live a lifestyle of worrying.
We worry about everything; our kids, our jobs, our homes, our vehicles, whether or not someone loves us, our marriages, and our place in the world. We are a people of perpetual worrying, but today I say to you- “Be at peace...”
Be at peace in your mind, heart, soul and spirit. Be at peace. Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV) says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” God already knows what we need, all we have to do is ask and release everything to Him. In our release, we allow His peace to transcend everything we have ever known- we allow ourselves to just “be” in His peace.
Today, I encourage you to stop worrying! Stop trying to figure out something that you have no control over! Just “be” in His peace. Wallow in His peace. Fill yourself with His peace and allow His peace to transcend everything you have ever known. Be at Peace!
Until next time,
