How To Walk In God’s Peace
Practical Steps You Can Take
As singles, couples, moms or dads, we all face the temptation to be anxious about circumstances, loved ones and the future. But the Bible teaches that we can walk in God’s supernatural peace because we are in Christ Jesus. Jesus Himself is our Peace. We can resist the temptation to give in to worry. We can choose, instead, to abide in God’s wonderful peace.
Peter the apostle wrote, “[Cast] the whole of your care — all you anxieties, all your worries, all you concerns, once and for all — on Him; for He cares for you affectionately, and cares about you watchfully.” There are three truths we can glean out of this one verse:
God never intended for you to carry your own burdens.
He wants to carry them for you.
You have to do something when it comes to worry.
You have to cast worry off of yourself and trust God with your problems. It takes humility to say, God, I give this problem to You because You can take care of it much better that I can.
God You need to understand the Father’s loving care for you as His child. Only then will you fully release the weight of each problem to Him. Worry, like other negative thoughts, is actually a thief — stealing our peace, energy, time and joy
