“Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” — John 14:27b

Do you find yourself filled with anxiety, when you look at the state of the world around us?

From poverty to sickness, to war and more, our world can sometimes be anything but peaceful. On the other hand, we hear prophetic words that a great revival will start on the West coast and move across the country. In fact, we have witnessed a two week unplanned revival in Wilmore, Kentucky with great reports of the moving of the Holy Spirit.

We have to determine not to live in a constant state of anxiety anticipating what will or will not happen. Our imaginations can run wild. Peace can only come by sitting in the presence of the Prince of Peace, Jesus. He is the one who can help us refocus and subdue any panic we have with what we read or hear. He assures us, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you” John 14:27. It is up to us to embrace that peace and walk in it. It will sooth and calm us.

I am in the “golden” years of life, so I may escape much of what is predicted, but I do have children and grandchildren just as many of you do. I have determined 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 aloud over them each day by name. I am stacking up prayers in heaven that will still be before the throne when my physical voice is silent.

“Let us determine to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” — Ephesians 6:10
