That in ME you might have peace…

Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
Psalm 119:165

How often do we forget that peace offered by the Lord?  As we look at the world around us waxing worse,  we set our eyes on our fears and we surrender peace for worry. Yet, we have been PROMISED “perfect peace“[Is 26:12] and commanded to “Fret not thyself because of evildoers“[Ps 37:1-2]! Even in the midst of trial, tribulation, and persecution PERFECT PEACE IS PROMISED as we set our mind on the Lord. A peace “which passeth all understanding“[Phil 4:7]! :) Praise the Lord! I am reminded of Mark 4 when the Lord’s disciples set their gaze on the storm, fearing the possibility of perishing and doubting  their Savior’s care for them, “And He was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?  And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, PEACE, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calmAnd he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?   We serve the God who “maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still“[Ps 107:29], He “ bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.“[ Ps 33:10]! He is the God of peace[Rom 15:33]. :) God promises  He will “worketh all things after the counsel of His own will“[Eph 1:11] and “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.“[Rom 8:28] Trust in the Lord’s perfect will, rest in His promises, and may “ the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. [2 Thes 3:16]! As I type this my 2 youngest sisters are in the background singing “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” That is a promise worth repeating for those who serve the God of peace! :)

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but take heart; I have overcome the world.”
John 16:22

John 14:27 〉〉 Col 3:15 〉〉 Phil 4:7 〉〉 Isaiah 32:17 〉〉 Ps 46

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.”
Isaiah 12:2

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in THEE.”
Isaiah 26:12
