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
