PEACE IS THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF GOD'S PRESENCE

“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, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]“ John 16:33 (AMP.)

God cares far more about your faith than He does about your comfort. 1 Peter 1:7 says that trials are only tests of your faith, to show that it is strong and pure.

In Job 23:8-9, Job records his search for God, “I go east, but He is not there. I go west, but I cannot find Him. I do not see Him in the north, for He is hidden. I turn to the south, but I cannot find Him.” It could have appeared to Job that God had entirely abandoned him. All of his efforts to find God’s Presence in his turmoil led to nothing, until we come to verse 10. Verse 10 says, “But He knows…” Job acknowledges that God knows his state, and if God knows, then He must be near!

He continues, “But He knows where I am going, and when He has tested me like gold in a fire, He will pronounce me innocent.” Do those words sound like the words of an anxious, fretful man? No! His words come from a heart that is reassured of God’s Faithfulness even in his trouble. And because of that reassurance, great peace guards his heart and mind (Philippians 4:6-7).

Let me ask you, “Has God ever failed you before? Even once?” Then why in the world would He fail you now? Remember His faithfulness in time past, and rest in the peace He so generously provides.

DAILY CONFESSION:
Psalm 55:22:
“Father, I thank You that I walk in Your righteousness, and that You will never allow me to be moved, made to fall, slip, or fail.”
