"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace...." (Galatians 5:22).
George Morrison wrote, "Peace is the possession of adequate resource." This is true in every way. Think of how much anxiety comes in your life when you lack something.
Whether you are a student facing an exam, a job-seeker facing an interview, an investor watching the Stock Market, an athlete facing an opponent, a soldier on the battlefield, parents holding a newborn, a neighbor experiencing conflict with another neighbor -- and on and on and on -- each of these potentially stressful scenarios is settled once you realize that God has given you the adequate resource to face and handle each and every one of them in the right way.
What is the source of your anxiety today? Name it, and look it squarely in the face.
Even now, in the face of this thing, yield to the the will of God and be filled with His Spirit. You will experience love, joy, and peace. Such peace that lets you repose in the face of countless depositions.
"My peace give I unto you," Jesus said. "Let not your heart be troubled; neither let it be afraid." All that Christ is, He now will be IN YOU.
The full resource of heaven is now at your disposal in this thing that you face. God's love has secured you in His Presence, God's joy has satisfied you with His goodness -- now let God's peace sustain you in the midst of strife and stress.
PEACE is the next step along the pathway to power in perilous times. And nothing shows God's power and presence more than peace when all hell is breaking loose!
Tomorrow we will take yet another step.
