Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start. There is a gift of joy awaiting you. Gifts are not earned or deserved, they are freely given.
Jesus called His peace a gift. He wants to give it to you today in full measure. You need only accept it and learn to stay grounded in His peace. His peace is better than the peace the world tries to sell.
The world tells you when you have your whole life together and you are finally problem free, you can attain peace.
Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart I have overcome the world.” He gives you a peace RIGHT in the middle of your circumstances, right while the storm rages, the waters rise, and the battle blares. In THAT, Jesus can give you a peace that cannot be shaken or taken.
His peace is a protective covering that shields your heart and your mind from outside elements. His peace is on the inside and can be accessed anywhere and anytime.
If you feel shaken, fearful, frustrated, worried, anxious, or hopeless, boldly and bravely cry out to Jesus for the GIFT of His peace. Ask Him to teach you how to receive peace amidst the storm and how to keeeeep His peace.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Teach us to remain steadfast on Your promises and to hold onto the peace that You give. Lord, pour a covering of peace over us today and protect us from the elements of the world. Show us where to go today, who to encourage, who to pray with, and who needs a fresh Word. Make us bold ministers of Your Word. Fill us with a peace that no one can take away. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Blessings and Peace!
