“In peace, I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” - Psalm 4:8
Bible Reading Psalm 4
When was the last time you had a good night’s sleep? Many factors contribute to a lack of peace, including our worries, fears, and anxieties. The absence of tranquility has an impact not only on our emotions but also on our health and well-being. Do you know we can find calm amid life’s storms?
The ultimate secret to having peace is to live a life of complete confidence and reliance on Jesus Christ’s love and strength. Most of the time, we will only experience serenity when there is a certainty. We often base our peace on what is happening around us and what will happen in the future. We shall face difficulties in this world from time to time. To be honest, our problems seem to never stop. Jesus, during His ministry, also reminded His disciples of the truth that in this world, we will have trouble (John 16:33). That is the nature of the world. However, God has triumphed over the world through Jesus Christ.
Let’s spend time to know how much God loves us through His Word and through His Son, Jesus Christ. When we believe He loves us, we can find true peace. True joy is not the result of material wealth. Rather, joy comes from knowing the Lord’s presence and peace (v. 7).
It is God’s obligation to sort things out in the right way, not ours.
