Peace or Worry?
New Life Daily Devotion
Thursday, April 5, 2012
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. - Colossians 3:15
Doesnít the world look pretty safe sometimes?
Peace accords are signed. Cold wars end. The wall comes down. Just when my fears began to calm, I ran across an article about nuclear weapons in Russia. Organized crime is trying to steal nuclear material in Russia and sell it on the black market. And while the FBI canít confirm that material has been stolen, Interpol reported that highly enriched uranium disappeared near St. Petersburg.
When I learn about the threat of nuclear weapons falling into the wrong hands, itís easy for me to feel anxious. But this is when I can turn to the truth from the Bible and learn from the words of Jesus.
In the Bible, the disciples of Jesus were anxious about their future. Jesus was telling them that he would soon die on a cross and be raised from the dead on the third day. They began to worry about their future. Then Jesus told them, ďPeace I leave with you, my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.Ē (John 14:26).
Itís easy to worry about the future but itís not what God wants for us. I challenge you today to rest in Godís peace.
ďPeace is more the product of our day-to-day living than of a spectacular program, intermittently executed.Ē
-Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969)
