We are set upon from all sides now. Whether you understand it or not you are somewhat in survival mode now. Having been to war a couple of times I see the tension in all your faces. It is pervasive and it saps the spirit. This can lead to shut-off of our brains and we don’t want that to occur as disconnected brains lead straight to violence; self-inflicted or to others.
I realized this just this morning as writing all that I do and studying Scripture keeps me on an even keel. I don’t allow my brain more than a few minutes a day to wander far from my side. It is getting dark out there and the light is in God’s word. Adhere to it and it will guide you to peace. It has for me and peace is something lacked since last century.
When I wish you peace here (and I always will) it is the peace from God to you through prayer. Remember when you pray what Jesus said, “Nothing comes to my Father but through me.” This is why we who believe end each prayer with: “I pray to you Father through your Son, Jesus Christ.” These are the required formality of prayer to God. Otherwise, He doesn’t hear you. Peace.
