Finding true peace

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

I’m sure we’ve all have people say to us that because we’re Christians we won’t face any problems or challenges in our life. That would be great it it were true, wouldn’t it? I must admit I’ve often wondered why people think that – if they look at the lives of Christians wouldn’t they see their lives are not exempt from problems?

Yes, those who believe in God will face problems in their lives, just as those who don’t believe in Him. The different for those of us who do believe in God, is that we know that no matter what we face in life, God is always with us, surrounding us with His unmatchable love and giving us peace.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33 (NIV)

God’s peace is available to everyone if we believe in Him, and let Him into our heart. Even in the most difficult days you can find true peace in God.

Stay close by my side
Keep your eyes on me
Though this life is hard
I will give you perfect peace

In this time of trial
Pain that no one sees
Trust me when I say

I will give you perfect peace

And you'll never walk alone
And you'll never be in need
Though I may not
Calm the storms around you
You can hide in Me
Burdens that you bear
Offer no relief
Let me bear your load
Cause I will give you perfect peace
Stay close by My side
And you'll never walk alone

Keep your eyes on Me
And you'll never be in need
Though this life is hard
Know that I will
Always give you perfect peace
I will give you perfect peace
