“Cast your burdens on the Lord, releasing the weight of them and He will sustain you.” (Psalm 55:22)
When you’re at peace, you are in a position of power! When you go through adversities, the enemy fully expects you to get upset, lose your joy, complain, and host your own “pity party.” He’s devised a plan to keep you in an attitude of defeat. When you choose to obey God’s Word and refuse to get upset, you break the forces of darkness and defeat the enemy in your life.
Jesus said in John 14:27, “I’m leaving you My peace. I’m giving it unto you.” The Amplified version says, “Now stop allowing yourself to be agitated and disturbed. And do not permit yourselves to become unsettled.” God has done His part to give you His peace. As a child of God, His peace is on the inside of you right now. You’ve got to do your part and make the decision to live in peace.
When negative circumstances arise, and you make the choice to stay calm and live in peace, you are showing that you have faith and trust in God. Today, choose to keep peace in your life. When you cast your burdens on Him, He promises to sustain you—that’s a place of true peace, a place of lasting power!
A Prayer for Today:
God, I know that You are in control, I know that You’re going to see me through; I trust You. I know that no weapon formed against me is going to prosper. Today, I will focus on the peace inside of me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
an old friend was making me really upset. it’s a long story. anyways, i could have been really harsh and mean to him but he’s going through something and even though we haven’t been friends for 2 years and when we talk, he’s awful to me, i’ve always been nice to him. the same with other people that haven’t been nice to me, i try to be forgiving and be nice and stay calm. i needed to read this tonight. these past 2 years have gotten better and i know it’s because i never lost sight of God through it <3
This is what we need reported more in the media-positive stories
Wow. My suspicions of this guy being kind of a pretentious alt comedy douche are completely eradicated. Or even if he is, who gives a fuck. This is a nice story.
“We mistake sex for romance. Guys are taught that pushing a girl up against a wall is romance. Sex is easy; you can do it with anyone, yourself, with batteries. Romance is when someone you like walks into a room and they take your breath away. Romance is when two people are dancing and they fit together perfectly. Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened.”—John C. Moffi
