Everyday Flood of Peace
Do you feel as if you’re drowning? Maybe it’s literal in the fact that the city you live in is flooding due to a storm. What do you do? You try and move to solid and higher ground to keep from drowning…right? And there you move with the love and help of God through others, so you’re not swept away by the water. Well, the same is true for holding unto the peace God gives us and promises in John 14:27, “Peace I give you. Don’t be afraid.” “But it’s flooding,” you cry out. He knows. He’s there.
God has peace to give no matter what difficult things flood your life. But we must choose to receive His peace and then practically speaking MOVE so He can move. Remember…He knows. He’s there. Sometimes I have to say aloud; “God I choose to receive the peace you give and not this fear I feel.” God is not surprised in what’s happening. He is always on the move. He is there for you…everyday.
