"Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6,7
IN JESUS TODAY!
Isn't it good to know that God is on our side? Having his peace cannot be outdone, there is nothing greater than this! As David tells us, "Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side." Psalm 71:21 To have his comfort on every side, knowing that he is for us, and will deliver us from all evil, is a security and safety in our life that is highly valuable! As it is written, "What shall we say then to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31 God is for us, and therefore we have access to his peace at all times and in every area of our life, knowing above all things that he cares for us, watches over us, and defends us! When we are in God's care we can know that we are safe, and that all things will work together for our good! As we read, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose!" Romans 8:28 Having his peace confirmed when we are in his protection, when we are in his care we see, "A thousand shall fall by thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come near thee."Psalm 91:7 No threat, and no weapon formed shall come near thee and prevail! "Be careful for nothing", tells us we do not have to bow, cow-tow, or surrender to fear! God is greater than our fears, and mighty in power! Now that is peace! Just walking along through "the valley of the shadow of death, fearing no evil, because his rod and his staff comforts us" Psalm 23:4 Just watching our enemies fall at our side, knowing that all this is because of the love that Jesus has for us, this provokes our hearts and minds to a loyalty and appreciation in love like none other! We love you Jesus! Jesus causes us to lie down in green pastures where peace is, and comfort, and his rest, because he cares for us! This alone should make us shout for joy, and should make us want to tell the whole world about the love of Jesus!
There is none greater than Jesus, our loving Father that cares, and teaches us throughout life, every step of the way! Jesus gives us access to the greatest things in life and protects us wherever we go!
