“A Peace Like No Other”
By Zach Wood
2 Thessalonians 3:16 NLT
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all.
Life can surely become hectic and chaotic and some days it seems we don’t even have time to catch our breath. Whatever the situation or circumstances, we often find ourselves caught up in the busy, non-stop lifestyle of activities we are involved in.
Maybe you are not caught up in that busyness, but perhaps life has been crazy, hectic and chaotic because of one dilemma after another. Maybe there has been sickness, death and disease in the family or friends and loved ones going through very difficult times lately.
Let these words from Paul be a comfort to you in whatever hard times you are experiencing. Maybe you need some peace in your life right now, whatever your situation may be. Perhaps you need to just feel one day of peace amidst all of the frustrations you are going through.
Do you need peace in the midst of a troubled marriage?
Do you need peace as you are dealing with the recent loss of a loved one?
Do you need peace as you deal with a teenager who is in trouble?
Do you need peace as you are on your last bit of hope for a friend or family member dealing with a disease?
Do you need peace as you deal with a daily job you cannot stand going to?
God provides peace that is beyond our understanding. He will provide a peace that will calm our soul. Sometimes, we just need one hour or one day of feeling a little peace to give us some hope. God promises to never abandon us. Does He promise to remove the struggles or the situation? No. But He does promise to give us peace if we will just trust Him.
I hope and pray that whatever situation you may be experiencing right now in your life, allow God to be your peace. Pour your heart out to Him and ask Him to fill you with His peace that transcends understanding. No one knows you better and no one understands your pain or situation more than Him.
Turn to Him and feel His peace.
