Good morning people who find their peace in Life while having trouble in life
Jesus walked in the peace of God whilst having trouble in this world.
The disciples walked in the peace of God whilst having trouble in this world.
You and I can do the same!
John 16:33 NIV I (Jesus) 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.
I’m gripped by the empowering truth of this verse!
Yes, because I am in this world, I will have trouble…but the greater truth is, whilst in this world, I am fully alive IN CHRIST, and He is the Prince of peace!!!
Here’s a delightfully powerful and accurate equation:
IN CHRIST > in this world.
Using a living example from scripture, even through the storms of life, Jesus is in our boat! We are called to go to the other side WITH CHRIST!!!
“But Steve, that doesn’t get rid of my problems!”
No, it doesn’t, and it doesn’t get rid of mine, or anyone else’s. But, and here’s the key: We choose what gets our attention most.
This is easy to type, but harder to live – I know. But, the longer I live life, the more I realise that there is a war on for my focus, my attention, my living convictions…and there is for yours too!
Oh, let me lean into some more truth tomorrow, but for now, continue to meditate on our scripture for today.
