"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
Do you have peace about the future? Sleepless nights, stress and anxiety may prove otherwise. Many voices are vying for our attention. One voice says, “Prove you are a good person.” Another voice says, “You should be ashamed of yourself.” Yet another voice says, “Nobody really cares about you."
But underneath all these often noisy voices is a still, small voice that says, “You are my Beloved, my favour rests on you.” That’s the voice we need to hear most of all. We should place our trust completely in God, finding the peace God has for us.
Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27)
Paul writing to the Philippians 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."
Will you join us in finding peace in His presence the week ahead?
Enjoy worshipping Him today.
