8 I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—but let them not turn to folly. Psalm 85:8
If the only thing God provided you was peace, would it be enough? The peace of mind we get with a good night’s rest really shouldn’t be underestimated.
Just think of those nights when you had to wait up and worry about your teen, slept in an uncomfortably hospital chair so you’d be by your mother’s side after she woke up from surgery, or stayed up all night worrying about the big speech you were going to give the next day. You could actually feel the tenseness in those types of situations. At any point during those nights, your blood pressure would have been off the charts! We all go through those times. While you may believe in God, the uneasiness you felt then was not at all peaceful.
The point I’m trying to make is that lack of peace comes at a great price to your mind, body, and spirit. All is not well with the world.
Thank God today for the peace you now enjoy. Pray for those you know who do not have the same peace of God as you do.
