When it comes to the tricky issues of politics, prophecies, and making choices (NOTE: we all will face them!) let me urge you to seek God’s wisdom in loving the solidity of the Scriptures.
Many advocates of social causes, including many Christians, do not ground their efforts in God’s Word. So in turn they easily go astray, either in goals or in strategies, and usually in both.
Usually….. when we seriously try to discover God’s will for a particular issue in Scripture, we’ll discover that our assumptions and biases and commitments need to be adjusted in light of God’s truth.
Divine peace, whether in our hearts or in our relationships, comes from the hand of God.
If you are lacking peace and feel that you are pushing against a darkness somewhere, don’t “try” to make yourself feel peaceful.
Don’t begin with breathing exercises or soothing rationalizations.
Rather, turn your heart to The LORD. Cry out to Him for help.
Spend time with him on a regular basis.
Not as a duty… a quick fix or a band-aid to cover over a fearful wound.
BE with Him in a quite place, rest.
Enter into His light where Peace rules the day!
I am always tenderly aware of how much more peacefully I take on the problems of the day when I have begun that day with Christ.
Since peace of mind and heart are his gift, this should come as no surprise, but it still does every day! (John 14:27).
In His Shadow,
