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 Mess.

The word, peace, literally means the absence of war: harmony, serenity, a sense of calm. Our world is so far from this that it is hard to imagine it even exists, but yet, it is so vital to our well-being. How did we get so far away from even the idea of peace?


God intended for us to be at peace even when the world is not. God has told us in His word that peace is in Him. One of my favorite hyns is "Master The Tempest is Raging." It was in the old Broadman Hymnal and my grandparents used to sing it in church when I was a little girl. It is based on Mark 4:36 -41. The hymn tells the story of Jesus and His disciples on the Sea of Galilee. When Jesus tells the wind and sea to be still, guess what, they got still. The words and music take you into the storm (action builds, you feel the panic or loss of control, and then Jesus takes you out of the storm.) Yes, you heard me right, Jesus takes you out of the storm.


My grandmother at one time had her own radio show, so she was quite a performer (most of us are hams), but she was the real deal. I guarantee you, we felt the storm the waves, the thunder, the crash and boom - then PEACE.


We are all in our own storm. Sometimes that storm is so great that we can’t see or think beyond it, but I promise you Jesus is ON DUTY 24/7. He is the master of storms, yours and mine. Don’t stay in the storm, go to Him. He will give you peace.


Do yourself a favor and listen to the hymn, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSBPhGa8QD0. You will be blessed.
