Ps 17, 35, 54, 63 “Finding Quiet and Peace in the Storm”
Has your day been one of quiet, or are you finding unrest due to the events of recent days? If you can answer with words of peace, you have found the secret place where you find the peace of God, but if you are wringing your hands, do as Jesus said, “come apart and rest awhile.” [Mark 6:31] It is at the feet of Jesus that we find peace in the storms of life. As we choose to sit at his feet, it is here that we can find that peace that passes all understanding.
That peace that so many are seeking comes when we sit and reflect and then ask these questions:
Are my lips free from guile? Have I allowed God to prove my heart in the middle of the night when all is quiet? Have I chosen that my mouth might not transgress God’s Law and His precepts? Do I ask God to hide me under the shadow of His wings of protection? Do I seek His face early? Do I trust that the angel of the Lord will surround me because I fear Him more than man, remembering that “the fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord will be set on high?” [Ps 34/Prov 29:25]
Praying today you will find that peace that passes all understanding.
