The Creator Says, “Let There Be Peace”

I love the idea of Jesus’ words having creative power–they do you know.  He spoke this world into being!  If He can do that, don’t you think He can speak peace into you?  The only thing you have to do to receive the peace is get your mind off yourself and turn the situation over to Him–and LEAVE IT THERE.  (I know, it’s easier said than done but why wouldn’t you try?)  I couldn’t say it any better than this:

With regard to the problem that is pressing in on you right now, are you “looking unto Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2) and receiving peace from Him?  If so, He will be a gracious blessing of peace exhibited in and through you.  But if you only try to worry your way out of the problem, you destroy His effectiveness in you, and you deserve whatever you get.  We become troubled because we have not been taking Him into account.  When a person confers with Jesus Christ, the confusion stops, because there is no confusion in Him.  Lay everything out before Him, and when you are faced with difficulty, bereavement, and sorrow, listen to Him say, “Let not your heart be troubled . . .” (John 14:27). —Oswald Chambers

Let your heart be re-created--have peace.

Let your heart be re-created–have peace.
