The Lord gives perfect peace to those whose faith is firm. So always trust the Lord because He is forever our mighty rock.
People who have no faith in God worry a lot. They are prisoners locked in a cell of doubt and fear. The best they can hope for is temporary relief from the cares of this life. They see no permanent solution to their problems and they have no answers to the mystery of death.
But if you believe in Jesus and that God is who He says He is, then you really have nothing to worry about. No human tragedy is beyond the reach of God’s loving hand. If you are blessed as a believer to reach old age then your memory will be filled with the times that God worked all things together for your good!
The real measure of your faith is peace in your heart. If your faith is strong your heart will be at peace. If your faith is weak, your peace will not be perfect. Simply stated the secret to being at peace is faith in God. Like the stick that you dip in the oil of a car to see how much is there peace in your heart is the dipstick of your faith.
“Lord Jesus I do not ask for peace without faith, but I do ask for peace that comes from trusting You. And may You, Jesus be praised forever. Amen.”
