There are so many people that live in turmoil. Their lives just seem to be like a boat rocking and rolling on the stormy seas. Many people today are searching for peace. Nations are seeking peace (or at least that is what they say). We live in a day when peace is at a minimum.
Yet; if you know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, you can have great peace. Remember, peace is not the absence of trouble and trials. Peace is that calm assurance and confident trust in Jesus Christ in the midst of the troubles and trials.
One of my favorite lighthouse pictures shows a lighthouse out in the sea. There is someone standing in the doorway as an enormous wave crashes against the back of the lighthouse and is coming around to the front. This speaks to me of peace. It is a picture of life.
David; the shepherd boy, wrote Psalm 23:2, “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.” Even thought the grass might be too tall to see over we can have peace. Even though the waters are troubled and no longer calm we can have great peace. The choice is all ours to make.
So, how are you doing?
