So today I would love to talk to you about peace. One of my favorite definitions of peace is, the lack of disturbance, or the absence of disturbance. I think a lot of times, we can experience a lot of mental disturbance that comes in the form of anxiety, or fear or all kinds of things that can keep us from attaching to the peace of God and the presence of God.
And something that I’ve also noticed about peace as well, is when we kind of get into our own ideas of what we need to do in order to fix a situation, we can kind of get ahead of ourselves a little bit. And not to say that we need to do everything perfectly, because sometimes there are seasons where we just do the best we can, we know we’re being a little bit messy, and there’s grace for it. But I think getting into a lifestyle of functioning that way is pretty unhealthy.
So something that I would like to encourage you with today is just knowing that the peace of God is actually always present for you. His voice is always present for you. His presence is always with you, you know, He actually lives in you. And if you’re not able to feel His peace, there may be some disturbance that’s there, right? There might be the presence of some disturbance. And so that’s when you really get to go in front of God and speak to Him about it.
Another thing that I would like to speak to you about regarding peace, is that I think a lot of times we only, sometimes, and this could not be true for you, this could be true for you, but sometimes we don’t allow ourselves to really rest in the peace of God, because we don’t feel like we’ve earned it. We don’t feel like we’ve done enough in our day in order to relax and feel like, okay, you know, I can just be here with the Lord, because He loves me even though I’m messy. He loves me, even though I didn’t do everything perfectly today.
I think sometimes we don’t allow ourselves to experience those things, because we, for some reason, don’t think that we deserve it. But I want to encourage you today and just let you know that you do deserve it. You do deserve to be in front of the Lord and just completely abandoned to His presence and to His peace. Why? Because He fought for you. Because He came to deliver you. If He didn’t think that you were worth you experiencing His presence, He wouldn’t have come.
So I just want to encourage you and even convince you today, that you are absolutely allowed to lay in front of the Lord on your bed at night and know that He is so willing, and He wants to be with you. He wants to meet you with His presence and with His peace. So today, I just bless you with the ability to be still, to bring those disturbances into a place of peace and really experience His presence in a way that calms the storms in your heart and in your mind and in your body, and just come into alignment with His love and His will for you.
