No Matter What, God Offers Us His Perfect Peace!

The news for the past year, and especially the past few weeks, has left many people feeling sad, angry and afraid. So, today I want to just simply share with you a Bible passage and it is my prayer it will encourage you, so you are able to encourage your grandchildren.

On this day, even when there is uncertainty in the world around me, I'm thankful for the perfect peace God gives me when I trust Him! Look at Isaiah 26:3-9,12; 28:16; 30:18 - 
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal. He humbles those who dwell on high, he lays the lofty city low; The path of the righteous is level; you the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us. So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.' Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!" (NIV)
