Heart of Thanksgiving
May 13, 2013
The best way to experience the presence of God’s peace is to thank Him for it. His presence and His peace are supernatural gifts available to you. It is impossible to spend too much time meditating on the goodness of God. The more your thoughts drift back to what God has done for you through your salvation the closer you stay connected to Him. It’s in the connection you sense His presence and in His presence is fullness of joy. There is no fullness of joy apart from His peace. The peace of God is (Greek definition) a tranquil state of the soul assured of deliverance through Christ, and so fearing nothing, content with its earthly lot. Paul, the apostle, learned to be at peace or content whether he had much or he had little. He said he had learned the secret of living in every situation. He continually praised God for His blessings knowing there was nothing he couldn’t achieve through Christ who always gave him the strength he needed for the journey.
Colossians 4:15(NLT) And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are all called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Isaiah 26:3 (NKJ) You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Psalm 95:1 (NKJ) Oh come; let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
God’s Blessings, Protection, and Favor to you,
