Seek His Peace
by Mary Jones, Norwich, England
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
What is in your heart today? Where is your anxiety rooted,what causes you grief, fear, unease? More importantly, what are you going to do with it?
Anxiety is the opposite of peace, it is usually stirred up by circumstances that are, if not out of our control, certainly a controlling factor over us.
Why does God tells us 'do not be' anxious about anything? It's because it steals from us, that which He has promised and in fact given, peace. 'My peace' I leave with you.'.'My yoke' is easy,' 'I care for you', amongst many others are His promises to us.
When we become anxious we tend to look inward, not outward or upward. We begin to fret, looking to the circumstances and our abilities, which it appears we have lack.
We see mountains, chasms, pits, in these places we only see chaos, which then invades our minds.. We can become almost choked by enormities of life, it's challenges, our minds a whirlpool of emotions, tossed this way and that, further and further away from the safety of firm ground.
This is the very time to seek God.
It is at our point of desperation that we can draw near to the author of truth, the one who tells us He knows the number of hairs on our heads, He has plans for us, plans for our good, not to harm or destroy us. We can do that very well for ourselves!!
When anxious thoughts invade, as surely they will, we live in an imperfect world, we ourselves are being perfected, we are not there yet, this is the time to enquire of God.
Opening your heart to Him, letting him into the hidden places, this is the beginning of wisdom. He already knows its secrets, we are laid bare before our creator, nothing is hidden from Him..
Wisdom is forming the correct plan for its desired effect. We are wise to seek His counsel. The outcome of Gods counsel is that its advise is divine, it is hidden secrets confidential between the seeker and the confidant, only The Lord has the knowledge of the anxieties that we feel.
He knows them full well, their source, their answers and their outcome. His word proclaims that we shall receive no more than we can bear. That all things work together for the good of those who love The Lord. That He has plans for us, for He who is in us is greater than He who is in the world.
Seek The Lords counsel and rest in the knowledge that all is well with my soul. His goodness and grace last forever and will lead us home.
Do not strive.
To God be the praise and glory! In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.
God bless you all.
