Peace Of Jesus

Dear Precious ones,
Each day as we live, comes with some or the other challenges, which makes it hard for us to cope up with our daily chores. We are disturbed to such an extent, that even our easiest task suddenly looks leathery. But what should we do when we encounter it? The simple answer to this simple question is, ‘call on Jesus, who will give you His peace’. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27). Well, brothers and sisters, this is quite comforting, is it not?

The most beautiful thing that Jesus asks us to do when we face the storm of hardships, rejection, depression, sickness, is just to lean on Him. He never instructs us to go and fight it ourselves, rather, just like a father to His child, He simply asks us to trust Him. Then He will say “…your faith has saved you; go in peace" (Luke 7:50). All we have to do is, to rest in the Lord and watch Him do that miracle for us; to calm the storm in our lives (Luke 8:22-25). So, let us with courage face the storm in our lives, because we know Jesus the mighty warrior is with us and is fighting for us.
I’m reminded of this narration, when Jesus and His disciples were sailing in the sea, a terrible storm arose which made His disciples fear for their life. Though Jesus was in that same boat, but He was asleep. His disciples were shaken up with fear. They were the inner circle of Jesus and thought Jesus to be one like them, merely human. They forgot the divine nature of Jesus and the powers that He was vested with. Do you really think, He was asleep and would let His disciples drown? (Mark 4:35-41) ‘No’, is the answer. Sometimes, he will send a small, very small storm like situation in our lives, to check our faith. Do we really trust Him, when He’s in our boat of life?

Today, I want to encourage you, no matter what the trouble you are facing today, great or small, start visualizing Jesus, who’s out there to calm it down for you. Be bold as a lion, and face the toughest situation in your life and after all, you know who ultimately controls it. Show Jesus, how firm your faith is in Him and He’ll be pleased with it (Hebrews 11:6). And don’t forget, Jesus is calming down all the hardest points in your life. He’s watching over you and will never let you perish (John 10:28). The Lord your God says, “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you” (Isaiah 41:13).
Lord, God Almighty, 
I come before you with a humble heart, fill me with your peace, which surpasses all understanding.  Whatever storm, I’m facing in my life, grant me the courage to face it with strong trust in you. Jesus I want you always in my life. May my life be pleasing and acceptable to you. 
I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus’.
