Verse of the Day

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

God of Peace

He will be your peace in times of trials and in times of triumph. Peace is not something that can be manufactured. There is only one creator of peace and that is God himself. We see countless times in the Bible when God bestowed his peace upon his people. One time in specific is when Jesus was traveling by boat with his disciples and there was a raging storm (Mark 4:35-41). The disciples were very afraid for their lives, but Jesus was not. He stood up and commanded the sea to obey and he brought peace to the waters. The disciples were amazed at how even seas obeyed him.

It is true peace when only God can command the chaos in our lives to be silent. We cannot. There is nothing we can do to stop the chaos other than trust in the Lord. He will calm the raging storms if we allow him to. However, if we try to take control and manufacture the peace to calm our storms, we will be very disappointed. We may even cause more damage. So make sure you trust in the peace only God can give, and you will discover a calm in your life.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for the peace that only you can give. You are my rock. You are the calm in the midst of the storm. I trust in you. Amen.
