In a world full of self-help books, it’s easy to see that many of us are seeking peace. Peace in our families, peace in our communities, peace in our minds, and peace in our souls. It can be hard to find, and even if we find peace, it is easy to lose.
As people of faith, though, we know that the greatest peace is found when we trust in God. We remind ourselves to place our trust in God and remember that it was God who created the universe, who knows every hair on our heads, and who transformed death on a cross into an access point to heaven. Sounds pretty trustworthy, doesn't it?
We know that there will be conflicts in our lives and in the world. They won’t end until the end of time. But the power of conflict is not nearly as great as the power of faith. We forget that sometimes.
If you have forgotten, let this be your reminder. Turn back to God, ask for His peace to reign. Ask Him to help you see that all will be well. God is so very close. We only need to look.
“Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will change your lot.” - Jeremiah 29:13b-14
