Christ is My Peace

As another day emerges, many find themselves in uncertain and anxious times.

Adversity strikes without bias; young, old, male, female, rich, poor, believer or non-believer. We’re living in a fallen world with broken’s going to happen—Jesus warned us in John 16:33, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

How often, especially in the midst of a devastating event, do you come across people who despite everything they have endured, have learned to say, “it is well with my soul”? They are grounded and anchored in the one thing that offers peace beyond all logic and comprehension—Jesus Christ.

It’s not to say they’re thrilled about their circumstances, but it’s all about where their hope lies. It’s not to diminish the hardships faced, but if we allow difficult circumstances to have more power over us, rather than turn to the One who holds power and authority over us, we will find our days riddled with fear and worry and no peace. It’s where we allow our focus to remain that dictates our course.

Isaiah 26:3-4, “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”

Bottom line, LIFE is uncertain and always changing, but if we stand on who Christ is and His promises, just like Peter in the boat amidst a raging storm, we can turn our eyes upon Jesus, trust Him and step out in faith. We may not walk on water as Peter did, but we can have power over the adversity that tries to steal our peace.

Christ IS my peace.
