Trust requires us to place our times in God's hands, believing that His timing is perfect for all things in our lives.
Some of us have practiced being anxious for most of our lives. So, we’re really good at it!
Unless we have a purposeful focus, joy can fade and hope may seem unattainable.
Quietness seems essential to many spiritual operations; the Lord is in the still small voice, and like the dew, His grace is distilled in silence.
Praying about decisions we need to make doesn’t mean we stop thinking about them—not at all. In fact, we should be asking God to help us understand our choices more clearly, and to decide which is best.
Winter in the soul is by no means a comfortable season, and if it is upon you just now, it will be very painful to you: But there is this comfort, namely, that the Lord makes it.
These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. –John 16:33
Many believers look for a sense of peace as a sign to help them determine God’s will in their life. However, a peaceful feeling may not be enough evidence to verify that a person’s decisions line up with the Lord’s plans. It’s wise to ask ourselves, Whose peace are we experiencing?
In order to experience the peace of God, we first must have peace with God, which only comes through complete surrender to Christ as our Lord and Savior. Once we are saved, God's peace is available.
