Many believers often forfeit peace because they don’t seek to know God more. They don’t put the necessary effort into reading the word, praying and working at renewing they mind daily. They panic instead of praying. They looked at their circumstances instead of God’s promises. But, when we as believers decide to trust Him more and more. Peace will flood in. Have a wonderful day as you always His peace to rule your heart. Love you all in Christ.
“May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.” 2 Peter 1:2 AMP
Do you remember your first experience of the overwhelming sense of God’s presence that accompanies trusting in Jesus? When people first experience forgiveness and life in Jesus, one of their first responses may be astonishment over how much peace occurs ― especially in their minds. That is how it was with me. At first, I sensed much contentment — it was greater than anything I had ever experienced. I soon realized that along with this contentment and a desire to follow Christ wholeheartedly comes a battle — the battle for our will and for our minds. No surprise there. Jesus promised that in this world we would have trouble (John 16:33).
However, He also promised His peace could reign in our hearts, not just the first time we come to Him, but every time. We can retain that peaceful sensation no matter what bombards us in life. Growing in our knowledge of the Lord is a lifelong pursuit. Peter reminds us it is worth every effort. He says God will provide more and more grace and peace as we grow in our knowledge of Jesus our Lord.
Lord, thank you for your promise of grace and peace as we grow in our knowledge you. Teach us to know You. Write your word on our heart. Help us to pray according to your will and pray through everything we need. Thank You that You hear and will answer according to Your will. Thank You for the promise of Your peace — beyond anything this world can give. Amen and Amen!
