There’s a Robber at the Door

 Philippians 4:6-7   

A robber has come to steal your peace and you opened the door and let him in.  Most of us know what anxiety feels like.  It robs us of our peace.  The world promises all kinds of solutions to this: if we just own this car or house, or our hair is this color, and if we join a gym so we can all walk around with prefect bodies. Now don’t get me wrong I’m not against owning a nice home or car.   If you can afford it without being consumed by worrying if you’ll be able to make the payments that is absolutely great.  And if you go to a gym to workout with staying healthy in mind that’s a good thing too.  What I’m saying is the world does not have the true answer for peace.  God is the only One Who can give us the gift of serenity.  We get there by trusting Him.  Instead of worrying we pray and seek God’s solution.  We let Him wrap our hearts in His love.  Now, if we have already sunk ourselves head over heels in debt we need to seek God’s solution for getting it paid off.  We might not like His way because He might tell us to get rid of the house and/or car or He might not.  If we want true peace we will seek His ways and follow them.  For true peace we must: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5)

  1. The greatest peace will often come from the greatest lack of worldly goods.
    The greatest strength will often come from the greatest vulnerability.
    And didn’t He make this “Place of testing” for just that proof?
    By His Grace.
