“For He Himself is our Peace.” Ephesians 2:14
Why is it that I let unrest settle over my soul when God has promised that He Himself will be my peace? The evening news distracts us. The price of gas and groceries and the deep needs around us can cause our peace of heart and mind to falter. We see it in others and we feel it, too often, within ourselves.
As we walk through our days we must be intentional about asking the Holy Spirit to remind us of God’s presence in our lives. When circumstances are shaky around us, God remains unshaken. He is a Rock, an anchor, where our souls can find refuge when we turn our focus to Him. He can steady emotions and give clarity of thought.
When your mind is tempted to focus on all the things that steal your peace ask God’s Spirit to whisper peace to your soul. He is your strength, your shelter and your resting place.
Today be conscious of lifting your eyes above the circumstances around you and to His loving face. He promises to guide you with His eye. You can have His peace as you walk today. Pause and lean into Him … let His peace wash over you …and then pass it out as you receive it from Him. When others are stressed and anxious let your confidence rest in the Lord as your fortress and your deliverer…. your Peace.
Thank you Lord, that because You are my Peace my step is lighter today. May I receive Your peace and then pass it along to others. I praise Your Name for it is in Your name I pray, amen.
