“I have told you these things so that you will be whole and at peace. In this world, you will be plagued with times of trouble, but you need not fear; I have triumphed over this corrupt world order.” –Jesus (John 16:33 VOICE)
Does your life feel fractured or broken?
Can you imagine what it would be like to be made whole again?
Jesus’ offer to us is peace. Not peace around us but peace within us.
The truth is that we live in a broken and fractured and godless world that is falling apart. Things will seem like they are crashing down around you. But while everyone else is freaking out, you can be deeply at peace. Why? Because you are tied to the One who has overcome the world! Learn to trust in the One who can bring you peace in the midst of a world that is crumbling everyday.
Spend some time in prayer. Tell Him how you feel fractured and broken. Ask the Lord to make you whole–to sanctify you through and through. Receive His peace over you life. If you are still restless inside, take a few deep breaths. As you inhale receive His peace, and as you exhale, let go of the stress and fear and anxiety within you.
“May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together–spirit, soul, and body–and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. (1Thessalonians 5:23 MSG)
