“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” (Philippians 4:4-9)
Today’s Morsel: I keep trying to get an understanding as to why there are so many Christians without peace in their lives. I keep wondering why there are many whose lives are full of affliction, torment, stress, distress, despair, hopelessness, and without any cheer. What is happening to them? Have they not read the scriptures that inform them that Jesus is the Prince of Peace? Do they not understand that Christ is in them? Do they not understand that they must remain and walk in the Spirit to have peace? Are they not aware that if they take counsel from the ungodly it will wreck their peace? If you want to maintain peace in your life, then you must become a doer of God’s word and not just a hearer of it. Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
Sing: I may have doubts and fear, my eyes be filled with tears, but Jesus is a friend who watches day and night. I go to Him in prayer, He knows my every care, and just a little talk with Jesus makes it right.
Now let us have a little talk with Jesus, tell Him about our troubles. He will hear our faintest cry, and He’ll answer by and by. When you feel a little prayer wheel turning, you’ll know a little fire is burning. You’ll find a little talk with Jesus makes it right.
Thought For Today: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
