God is dealing with us in a special situation right now. It is a place in our lives we have never been. We are needing to trust Him more than ever before. We need to trust, even though we don´t see the future clearly.
Not truly trusting and resting in God each and everyday can take away our peace. One of the fruit of the Spirit that we should all seek is peace.
We receive a certain peace when we accept Christ as our Savior, but is daily peace different? When we stress over the electric bill going up, the children not obeying as they should, or even a huge decision looming in the future, does this take away our peace, our calm?
God´s peace is not a euphoric feeling when everything is going right. That´s a worldly peace. God´s peace is beyond our comprehension, it gives us a calm when everything around us is uncertain or even chaotic.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
Through the ages, many missionaries, all the world over, have had a difficult task trusting God for money, guidance, co-workers, and even how to start a church. You don´t have to be on foreign soil to struggle trusting God and seeking His peace. It happens to us all.
But resting in God´s peace and trusting Him must be a decision. He knows best. He knows what we need when we need it. With God´s help, we don´t have to be anxious or afraid of the future. When we accept Christ as our Savior we are given His Spirit, and that makes us more than conquerors!
Let´s make this decision today and pray to be able to say as Hudson Taylor did...In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37
“I am no longer anxious about anything, as I realize the Lord is able to carry out His will, and His will is mine. It makes no matter where He places me, or how. That is rather for Him to consider than for me; for in the easiest positions He must give me His grace, and in the most difficult, His grace is sufficient.” — Hudson Taylor
