“My peace I give unto you, not as the world gives do I give to you”…John 14:27 NASB
As usual, God showed up last night to be right with our single moms at our weekly Moms@Midweek gathering! He wrapped Himself up around us and made Himself known. He’s invited, you know. We mentor moms are faithful to ask the Lord to show up each week. We ask Him to be with our single moms during the week, but to especially be there right with us all that night. Because you see, it’s not about us mentoring moms doing anything special. It’s about Him. He does the work. We just get to watch Him work.
Come to think of it, He would like to be invited to participate in each of your days from the very beginning! So, while you’re getting ready for your day, getting your children off to school, you off to work, your errands, your own school, He would love to meet with you for a moment.
When one of my favorite broken evangelists converted from a Franciscan priest, Brennan Manning, prays he puts a chair before him. And he invites Jesus to sit in the chair. And then he talks to the Lord Jesus more easily, knowing He’s listening.
Lately, I’ve been camping on Jesus’ promise that He’ll bring peace to my dailyness.
So, here’s the word for today – “My peace I give unto you; not as the world gives do I give you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27.
And a wonderful cross reference is “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts……..and be thankful.” Colossians 3:15.
Let the peace rule – rein – have dominance over – captivate your heart. Peace. Calm. Rest. In Him. Takes a bit of trust. Okay. A lot of trust. That the unseen Lord of the Universe is in you and wants to give you His peace? Well, I’ve experienced it. It’s real.
True Walk with Him:
Today. As you go about your busy day, may you take a moment here and there to stop and breathe and think about Jesus’ peace ruling and reigning in your life – your mind – your soul – your heart. He has you! Let Him do what He does best. Love on you!
