… when the human race first succumbed to Satan’s seduction in the garden, everything on this planet fell into the grip of sin. And the result has been disorder and dysfunction ever since.
The reality of trouble in life is obvious. It’s the reality of peace that often eludes us. Interestingly, when Jesus warned His followers about trouble, in the same breath He also promised peace.
So, although we can expect some trouble in this fallen world, the good news is that we can count on Jesus for peace in troubled times. – Joe Stowell
Dear Lord, thank You for always being with us. We ask that when troubles invariably come, You would renew in us once again the blessed peace of Your presence. Amen.
In the midst of troubles, paece can be found in Jesus.
