How are you doing? Family, work and all?
Recently, I found myself thinking of what it means to have peace as a believer and I came to the realization that peace is not the absence of storm rather, it is the ability to remain calm in the midst of the storm.
As believers, it is our faith that births this peace.
Our faith that, when we walk through fire, He is there with us. Our faith that, he knew us before we were formed in our mother's womb. Our faith that, we do not know tomorrow but we know the One that holds tomorrow. Our faith that, He causes ALL things to work together for our good. Our faith that, faithful is He who has called for he will also do. Our faith that, the thought he has for us are not of evil/disaster but to give us a hope and a good future. Our faith that, surely there is an end and our expectations would not be cut short. Our faith that, he is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all we could ask, think or imagine.
This made it apparent that, more often when we are perplexed about situations, could it be that our faith is not enough? could it be that we have forgotten the promises of His word? because if truly we have internalized these spoken promises why then do we loose our calm in the storm?
Sis, I need you to think this through like I have done, ask for grace to exercise more level of faith (peace) in the unpleasant situations you might be faced with and I trust that God will empower you.
Loads of love,
