We all need perfect peace. A time of solace and calmness, a time when we can freely smile with no strings attached, a time of being light and bubbling with joy and such a time is available for us.
"and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7 (NKJV),
The blessed experience as stated above is reached upon exercising our blessed privilege of prayer, for the verse which precedes the above is as follows :
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; " Philippians 4:6 (NKJV).
Prayer is the best just because our Lord is the best and when we go to the best through the medium of prayer, the time of prayer becomes the blessed time for us.
I have experienced this several times, when burdened I kneel down in prayer and lightened I rise up, there is deep peace within and an assurance of the certainty of my need being fulfilled.
God was, is and will always be good. He created the entire universe out of nothing and when we see certain things depleting from our life, certain resources draining out, we can always tell God about it in prayer, for He Who made all this, can do it again, He will restore all we have lost.
This is what God promised to his people...
ôSo I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you." Joel 2:25 (NKJV)
So if today we stand before a situation from where we can see no hope and even out best imaginations are failing us, do not conclude unless you have brought this before God. Let the Master deal with it, for even though we may have expended our best toils, there are still some fishes for us waiting for the Master's call, the time for the big catch is yet due.
Do not give up, for God has not given up on you, for one of His expertise is to restore the broken hearted and He has never failed in His efforts, He will do the same for you too.
There is hope in Christ at all times and for every circumstance, get the peace, pray now.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
