Whatever situation we may find ourselves in, Jesus is our Peace! He is the King of Peace! God promised in His Word that He would never leave us nor forsake us. He never said it would be easy, but that He would be with us and that if we keep our eyes on Him and His Word above our circumstances, He would give us the Victory through Christ.!
NO, it may not be a quick fix! But as we trust in Him, submit to Him and continue to lean on Him and confess His Word, He will bring us through the storm! He will give us the strength we need to face our situations in this life and give us that peace that only comes from Him!
We may not feel like praising God, or reading His Word when we are going through hard times, trying times and situations, but if we do it anyway whether we feel like or not, we will begin to have that peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of our trials and tribulations.
Don't let the devil steal your peace! When worry, anxiety, depression, fear or negative thoughts target your mind, stand on the word of God! As you confess God's Word, you will soon feel His peace and those anxieties leave your mind.Why? Because God's Word is powerful and sharper than a two-edge sword! God's Word is our weapon against the enemy! Let us confess what God's Word says about us in the midst of the storm!
