Today is my 30th birthday! Yay!
We all have fears, stress, worries, and anxieties that try to take over our lives and we all need peace. God says that He will give us His peace that surpasses all understanding.
Peace 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. (John 14:27)
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 5:1)
The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. (Rom. 8:6)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:6-7)
I pray that You will surround us with Your peace. If we don’t have peace right now, please show us why. Maybe we are making wrong choices, or we aren’t being obedient to Your will for us. Maybe we’re about to do something you don’t want us to do. Or, maybe we just aren’t trusting You. Whatever it is, if we don’t have peace right now, please reveal the reason why and, as we are obedient and faithful to You, fill us with Your peace that surpasses all understanding. We cast all our cares, worries, fears, and anxieties on You.
In Jesus’ holy name, we pray.
