Don’t Wait! Peace is Here!
How many times have you prayed that God would change something in your life so that you could finally have peace? I have great news for you – peace is available NOW! That’s right, you don’t have to wait for your good news to come in, or for your situation to change. You can have peace in the midst of it all – you can have peace today even!
How? It’s simple. In fact, the Bible even lays out the exact formula for us!
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything be prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 4:6,7
Notice how first you have to make your requests known to God. You’d think this would be so very obvious, but I often find that the times I most need Him are those in which I have least asked Him for help.
The real key here, though, is the thanksgiving. It’s easy to thank God for our food as we sit down to dinner, but how often do we stop and take pause and actually remember God’s Hand in our lives? It’s not just about God, it’s a whole lot about us, too. When we remember His goodness, it ushers in that promised peace “which surpasses all understanding.” Why? Because we start to realize that this mountain we’re facing is no different from the ones God has moved for us in the past.
Today, your peace is ready and waiting for you. Get down on your knees and get it!
