Peace & Perspective – Triumph Over Fear

FEARjpg

At times in this world of trouble we need a reminder of where our focus should lie. Please pray today and every day for those enduring religious and ethnic persecution.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

God's perfect love

“If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.” Robert McCheyne (1813-1843)

Let each of us remember to pray every day for our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” ~ Ephesians 6:18

Proverbs – The Path of Peace

April’s Trail

 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)

There are many potential threats hanging over us all: the collapse of world-wide economies, dangerous cataclysms beneath the earth’s crust, the crescendo of bad weather, poisons in the water, air and sky, epidemics, illness, famines…the list could go on and on.

Yet, I have a source, you have a source, we all have a source of peace. That peace can be found in the Lord Jesus Christ.

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 (NIV)

God’s presence and his word are always my abiding peace.
