LORD, I CHOOSE YOUR PEACE.... OVER CHAOS
Updated: Oct 14, 2021
My friends, can you hang on a little longer? We're almost out of this nightmare of 2020-2021, and hopefully not on into 2022.
We all have our story to tell of how there have been many things in one of those years like never before that I, and possibly you, have experienced.
Can I tell you that in Bible history many of the kings experienced some pretty bad times also? One example is found in 2 Chronicles 14:11 King Asa faced a situation in his early reign. He was confronted by a hostile army that outnumbered his forces two to one. In desperation the king cried out to God, acknowledging his own weakness and expressing faith in God's sovereign power to save by many or by few. He finished his prayer with these beautiful words: " We rest on thee, and in thy name, we go against this multitude" God honored that trust by giving Asa and his army an overwhelming victory.
I have chosen to pray that same prayer. I have chosen the Lord's peace He gives, instead of the chaos we are experiencing.
John 14:27 says: "peace I give unto you, not as the world gives. Let not your heart be troubled and do not be afraid."
I want this peace that only our great creator can give, and He gives that to us when we turn our hearts to Him.
Do you realize we are fighting a battle just like king Asa faced? Ours is in " such a time as this" the battle of good and evil. Evil rages, but good will prevail. I have learned through my life's struggles that when you just can't hang on anymore...... OUR GOD WILL SHOW UP! and take us through the FIRE AGAIN.!!
So will you choose peace and not chaos? will you ask our Lord and Savior to give you that peace? It only comes from choosing to put ALL your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Did I say it was easy? NO, but as many scriptures throughout the Bible says, when they did, was when they found a peace that passes all understanding. Philippians 4:7.
I CHOOSE PEACE............. OVER CHAOS
