“Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” — John 14:27b
Do you receive lots of warnings about the times we live in and the disaster that is coming on the United States as efforts are underway to remove every Christian related activity or principle out of the public eye? This is in addition to the deadly virus we are facing that is constantly in the news. On the other hand, we are also hearing prophetic words that a great revival will start on the west coast and sweep across our country. It is enough to make one live in a constant state of anxiety anticipating what will or will not happen. Our imaginations can run wild with all the information.
Peace can come only by making time to sit in the presence of the Prince of Peace, Jesus. He is the one who can help us to refocus and subdue any panic we may take on by what we read or hear. He assures us, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.” John 14:27a. It is up to us to embrace that peace and walk in it. It will soothe and calm us.
I am in the “golden years” of life so I may escape much of what is predicted, but I have children and grandchildren just as many of you do. I determine the best thing I can do is pray that they are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. I pray they will be towers of faith and love the Lord with all their hearts.
In addition, I pray the 91st Psalm over each of them every day. I am stacking up prayers in heaven that will still be before the throne when my physical voice is silent.
