There are so many times we feel lost. Abandoned. Helpless. Confused. Lonely.
We don’t understand death. Broken relationships. Hurting families.
Personally, I have been quite restless. I’ve been anxious. I’ve been confused. I’ve been frustrated. I haven’t been able to find a church while living down in Southern California, and it’s killing me. I’m so ready to just pick one and start serving, but there is always something keeping me from finally making a decision. I have no idea what it is, but I have not had peace about this situation at all. I’m ready to give up. On top of that, I’m in search of a job, and that also makes me restless. I know the Lord is going to provide for me in every way, but I’m not at peace. It’s time I start to seek His peace.
Maybe you’re not at peace. Maybe you feel alone. Maybe you’re hurting more than anyone can understand. Maybe you feel confused about what your calling is. And maybe. Just maybe, it is God’s way of telling you to seek His peace. When was the last time you prayed for the Lord to overwhelm you with His peace that surpasses all understanding?
Find a quiet place. Write in a journal. Worship Him without song. Be still before Him. Don’t think He doesn’t know where you’re at. He is right there with you. But if you are pushing Him away, you’re pushing yourself far from the peace that He has for you. The peace that He has for you is far greater than any type of peace you will find on this Earth.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
In case you didn’t notice, God grants you peace which goes farther than those issues we don’t understand. His peace goes farther than that death. That broken relationship. That tough decision. That confusing situation. His peace will guard your heart and mind. His peace will push away any thinking that you won’t make it.
Spend time in prayer with your Heavenly Father, and allow the Lord to bless you with His peace. Not only for today, but the hard days to come. He has not left you. He will never leave you.
His peace surpasses all understanding…
