Good morning, Making Space for God friends. Earlier this week, I wrote about setting our God priorities. This can be hard, especially during stressful and crazy times. As many of us our keeping our eye on Florence, I want to share an entry from my devotional, Sitting at His Feet, that points us to our Prince of Peace – Jesus – in all of our circumstances, especially trials. I encourage you to seek Him in the midst of whatever trials, anxiety or stress you may be facing today – His presence is always available to us.
I will give you a peace that transcends understanding. In the midst of your trials and anxiety, I will give you hope. Turn back to me and seek me with all of your heart. Your circumstances seem to be spinning out of control, but I am the eye of the storm. And I am the Prince of Peace. There is river of life with my Presence that constantly flows and is available to you. No trial or difficulty can keep you from my Presence. My peace is available to you like a river that is teeming with life—my life. It is my love that never fails that will keep you centered on me and not on the trial. If only you would turn back to me and surrender to the river of my Presence, you will find that you no longer have to tread water but can float in the river of my life.
Isaiah 26:3; Isaiah 48:17-18; Psalm 46:10
You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
