Peace is available to us at all times if we will but have it, and all we have to do to have peace is trust God—have faith. Peace, as I’ve said, is the key that unlocks the door to joy, and faith is the vehicle that will deliver you to the door.
I sometimes feel as though the hands of God are upon my shoulders, lovingly guiding me toward His peace and joy. He doesn’t force me, but knows I won’t be disappointed when at last I go where He urges me to go.
Unfortunately, we tend to think we know a better way—a better place to be—and tend to follow the bright and promising signs Satan constantly tempts us with. We are ever seeking that next “thing” the world tells us is the thing we need and must have.
When you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, shrug it off and turn your eyes toward Jesus. It’s that simple. It’s that easy.
He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Psalm 23:3
