TODAY’S WORD…

.

You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in You,
all whose thoughts are fixed on You!

.

– Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

The gift that God offers the faithful is peace.

.

As He was approaching the end of His ministry on earth,

Jesus caringly gave us His peace:

“I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart.

And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.

So don’t be troubled or afraid.” (Jn 14:27)

In giving us His peace, Jesus gave us His Spirit

to be always with us,

to guide us,

console us,

counsel us,

and to lead us back into the Father’s arms.

.

If I am not feeling the peace of the Lord inside of me,

I need to look deeply into myself

to examine my faithfulness to Him and His commandments;

to check on whether I really do trust fully in Him;

to see if, in spite of the Spirit’s prompting,

I still insist on doing my thing and on going my own way

in order to satisfy my earthly needs and desires.

.

Yes, the peace of the Lord

is felt by those who place their trust fully in Him

and whose thoughts are, therefore, fixed on Him.

.

So, what about me,

is my soul rejoicing in God’s peace?

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Strengthen my faith, O God, that I may rejoice in Your peace.

Your peace is all I need!
