There’s a peace that doesn’t change according to our circumstances. It can’t be robbed from us and it’s more real and true than anything. This peace can be found by actually believing that God is alive and He is for us. When you completely surrender all your burdens to Jesus Christ, you find that there is nothing left to fear. In an instant, all your worries disappear and you are filled with a joy that words just can’t explain. This joy becomes alive in your heart when you place all your trust in Him- no matter how dark the night around you is! Pain and sorrow have no power over you! God’s love is truer and stronger than any temporary grief!!! So, be strong, troubled heart! Fix your eyes upon the unseen, the eternal! It might look like everything is lost, when in fact you’re constantly being filled with strength!! You know why we fail to see the reality? We focus too much on what we lack, instead of focusing on how abundant God’s provision is for us. He is never unaware of our situation and He always fights on our behalf! Everything we need is found in His arms. Peace, security, joy, comfort, love. Everything! You know what? It all comes down to how much you really believe in God. As long as you believe in Him with every bit of your heart- your soul will soar with joy! Worry is simply lack of faith and a very lonely place to be in. Whatever you do, don’t embrace it! God is always in control! God is always with us! God will never fail us! All we have to do is place our trust in Him. How could we not? He is more than worth our trust!
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.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
