THE promise of peace

As we stand with our toes on the edge of tomorrow and peer ahead, we read the headlines and feel ripples of anxiety washing into our souls. Sometimes those ripples swell into raging floods that knock us off our feet and threaten to drown us.

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled,” our King says to us. “Trust in God. Trust in me. I’ve given you my words so you can have peace.”

We might wonder how peace is possible in this turbulent world. But there it is, repeated so often in God’s Word to us: the promise that He can give us peace.

Every day, we make many choices about who and what we will believe and trust. And every time our choice is to believe and trust God what God says, we send our roots deeper and deeper into the life-giving water, the only Source of peace.
