"Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord."
2 PETER 1 : 2
This is from A Holy Experience a few weeks back but it still is ringing true...
“A Prayer for the Afflicted….” She begins slow. The Farmer grins: “Appropriate.” “The Lord looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth…“ And we’re all a bit crazy and we’re all a bit afflicted and we have a God who sees every bit of it and takes all of us. We have a God who sees hearts like we see faces, a God who hears ache like we hear voices, and we have a God who touches wounds like we touch skin. God sees it all — and He will see to all of it. No one’s crazy can change God’s crazy love."
I have really really enjoyed going through Jesus Calling Devos this year - this one is also from about 2 weeks ago but I needed it then, and I need it today...
"RECEIVE MY PEACE. It is My continual gift to you. The best way to receive this gift is to sit quietly in My Presence, trusting Me in every area of your life. Quietness and trust accomplish far more than you can imagine: not only in you, but also on earth and in heaven. When you trust Me in a given area, you release that problem or person into My care. Spending time alone with Me can be a difficult discipline, because it goes against the activity addiction of this age. You may appear to be doing nothing, but actually you are participating in battles going on within spiritual realms. You are waging war—not with the weapons of the world, but with heavenly weapons, which have divine power to demolish strongholds. Living close to Me is a sure defense against evil."
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” JOHN 14 : 27
