John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration: but be of good cheer (take courage: be confident, certain, fearless! For I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you. ”
But in the midst of all of these sorrows, we can walk in total peace. A peace we can’t explain. It’s a knowing on the inside that God is on our side and we don’t have to be afraid of what man can do.
Today, the storms of life may be raging all around us, but we can have this confidence that we are going to the other side. We are not going to get blown away, or pulled under with the current. When we fall we shall arise, when we sit in darkness the Lord shall be our light. Micah 7:8. When we pass through the waters, God is with us, when we walk through the fire, we shall not be burned . Is 43:2
God’s Word promises us that when people may come against us one way, but they will flee seven ways. That a thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.
Trouble will flee, because His banner over us is love.
Isaiah 26:3 YOU will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind is stayed on YOU, because he commits himself to YOU, leans on You and hopes confidently in YOU.
Then and then only can we walk in a peace that passes all understanding.
