Peace comes from letting God lead

Have you ever woke up knowing that no matter what the day brought, you were going to be fine? Peace is a wonderful feeling. We know it when we have it, and we all want more of it. 

In John 14:27, Jesus says, “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” Jesus doesn’t say we won’t have trouble; He says we don’t have to let ourselves be troubled. When we have God on our side, we can live securely. We can experience peace. 

Living in peace is possible in every aspect of our day — from the moment we wake up in the mornings, throughout the day as we work and attend school, and in the evenings when we return home. Wherever we are going, we can walk confidently and have peace. 

We weren’t designed to carry the weight of the world, but God can. 

This unshakable peace comes from knowing God and trusting Him with every detail of our lives, like sheep in the care of a good shepherd. “He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness will reach to the ends of the earth” (Micah 5:4). No matter the things we go through, we have someone watching over us. And even though we can’t always see it, we are secure. 

God’s peace is available to all of us; we just have to humble ourselves and allow Him to run our daily lives. We weren’t designed to carry the weight of the world, but God can.
