If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ, you are at peace with God! Dwell on that for a second. The almighty creator God who spoke the very existence of this world into motion is at peace with you. I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel pretty great!
"Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” Romans 5:1-5
I know that there are sometimes circumstances that worry us or cause us angst, but know this, as a believer in Christ you already have the biggest problem in your life fixed! The powerful and sovereign God loves you and has forgiven you of all misdoing and sin. Even when we hit hardships, we can still have peace in our faith in Christ because that suffering works through us to produce unstoppable character!
Rejoice in the peace of God this week!
