“While they were still talking about this, Jesus Himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” – Luke 24:36
The stress, horror and inner conflict we may experience in life causes our peace to disappear, leaving us moody and discontent.
That is why we need to develop inner reserves from which to draw strength in difficult situations. When things go wrong and stress starts to overwhelm you, purposefully refuse to be swept into this current. Guard against bad temper and irritability.
Deliberately choose to remain tranquil by controlling your thoughts. Spend some time in God’s presence, reaffirm your dependence on Him, and soon your spirit will become calm and His peace will refresh your life.
Eternal God who gives me peace in Jesus Christ, lead me to quiet waters where there is peace in the midst of the bustle of life. Amen.
