Peace of God
“The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 (NIV)
How do people live without God or go through the grief of life without the presence of God’s peace? It’s a rhetorical question but one that a believer in the Lord finds difficult to answer. There is no true life, at least a life of peace, without the presence of the Lord to comfort, guide, and strengthen when the walls of this world crumble about us. Without the Lord there is restlessness that knows no satisfaction.
The genuine Christian life is one that intentionally invites the Lord’s presence into every aspect of our life. It is including the Word of the Lord into our daily thoughts and weighing every decision we face in light of it. It is finding rest from our cares by turning to the Lord daily in prayer.
Let’s pray today for the peace of God’s presence to give us rest for the trials of life.
