Peace in Jesus
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7 (ESV)
Peace in a trial is not explainable, but it is experienced when your heart and mind is set on the Lord Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God directs our paths, and sometimes that leads to decisions that don’t make sense to an observer, but to us who trust in Jesus there is a confident calmness in obeying God.
Sadness may haunt us, grief may bury our laughter, pain may steel our smile, but in Jesus we have peace. We can not explain the peace of Jesus to others, but we know it deep within so we are not frazzled by sorrow that comes from without.
Let’s pray today that those in trials of life may turn their eyes on Jesus and find peace in Him.
