Receive His peace // 30-06-23

“Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]. To this peace indeed you were called as members in one body [of believers]. And be thankful [to God always].” Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭15‬ ‭AMP‬‬

It’s that daily walking and talking with Jesus that brings peace; that growing understanding of, and confidence in, His presence and guidance that calms the inner self, with a sure and certain hope that my life and future is in His very capable hands! That relationship of trust, that daily connection to His love, grace and wisdom acts as an anchor to my soul regardless of circumstance. When I start to worry, panic, stress or flounder in faith it so often corresponds with me neglecting that daily walk with Jesus and feeling distant from God. Not that He’s gone anywhere, He doesn’t leave, His promise remains steadfast, and I rediscover that He is still right there as I orientate my heart back towards Him. Lord, I’m sorry for the times I wander, thank You for never giving up on me, for reminding me this morning of how much I need You and the peace that only You can give. Help me to walk and talk with You today and may my trusting heart be evidenced by having a thankful heart. Amen 👆🏼🙏🏼❤️
