We live in a restless world. It seems no matter where you turn noise and stress fill our lives. Finding peace is often times difficult. We all dream of a peaceful setting, maybe in the mountains, or on a private beach, but often times true peace is hard to find.
God has promised peace to those who trust in Him. This verse not only promises peace, but “perfect” peace. This is a constant peace; a peace that goes beyond natural understanding. It is the peace that settles in our heart even when the world around us is falling apart. This peace is not dependent on the situation. It is a peace that can come only from God.
How do you experience that kind of peace? This verse tells us that if we depend on God, then He will fill us with His peace. Depending on God is the expression of trust in God. It is a moment-by-moment reliance on Him. It is seeing God as the true source of all we need. It is a confession that God is good, and He can be trusted.
Guys never like to show their weakness, but they deal with fear, worry, and anxiety just like everyone else. As you pray for your husband today, pray that he puts his trust in God. Pray that he not only obeys God, but looks to Him for all he needs. As he trusts God on a moment-by-moment basis, he will experience peace like he has never experienced before.
Father, I pray today that eddie can experience Your perfect peace today. I pray that as he puts his faith, trust and hope in You, You will cover him with Your constant peace. Thank You for this promise, and I pray that eddie will walk in Your peace today.
In Jesus Name,
eddie, Today I am praying that you experience the perfect peace of God. I am praying that you will trust Him today for everything you need. As you trust in Him, He has promised to fill you with His perfect peace. - Love denise
