“Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (KJV)
Being conscious of the presence of God in you makes it easy to cooperate with Him. The believers in Thessalonica had peace reigning in their hearts, but Apostle Paul still prayed for them to have peace. It tells us that sometimes the situation that we find ourselves in can rob us of the peace we have. At other times, we forget that the Lord is with us, because of the challenges we are going through.
Love and peace of mind do protect us. They allow us to overcome the problems that life hands us. They teach us to survive… to live now… to have the courage to confront each day.” —Bernie Siegel
Dear beloved, just as Apostle Paul prayed for the believers to have peace, we can also pray for ourselves at any time for our own peace. In the atmosphere of peace, we can hear the voice of God and respond to His leading. Any time we feel like God has abandoned us, it is the right time to continually declare, “The Lord is with me,” and that anxious feeling will disappear (Mark 11:23–24). He has said that He will never leave us nor forsake us, so let us declare that the Lord is our helper, and indeed, we will find help in Him (Hebrews 13:5–6). Hallelujah! God bless you!
Peace only comes from accepting the inevitable and taming our desires. @TheAncientSage
Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.” —John F. Kennedy
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your presence in me and with me. I believe you will never leave me nor forsake me. Amen!
The lord is with you.
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales
