THAT peace

Doing a little mini study on peace recently brought me to this writing:

"Are you painfully disturbed right now, distracted by the waves and billows of God's providential permission, and having, as it were, turned over the boulders of your belief, are you still finding no well of peace or joy or comfort; is all barren?  Then look up and receive the undisturbedness of the Lord Jesus.  Reflected peace is the proof that you are right with God because you are at liberty to turn your mind to Him." ~ Oswald Chambers

And this morning I read this in my devotional:

"Don't allow life's obstacles to keep you from enjoying God's plan for your life.  God has allowed them for a purpose.  Trust Him, and realize that when you feel out of control, He is never shaken." ~ Charles Stanley

With confirmation in God's Word:

"And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 4:7

God is a solid rock.  We can look to Him and find His undisturbedness (don't you love that big word?!) and see that He in never shaken.  That kind of peace does surpass our human understanding, especially in today's world of craziness. And that kind of peace is available to everyone who trusts in Him as their Lord and Savior.  

It reminds me of the storm on the seas when the disciples were tossed about in a boat with Jesus aboard sleeping (Matthew 8:23-27).  Oh ye of little faith!  Trust Him because He has power over the storms of life and will help you stand with His peace in your heart!
