Where is your hiding place? In your car on a long drive? A dark morning hour with coffee? Maybe in a crowd, or in white noise?
We crave safety from the womb, and never cease working for it. We spend all our time and money to build walls or tear down walls, all to find the same thing: Peace.
Maybe you have forgotten, as I often do, these words that were spoken to the shepherds about Jesus: ‘… on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.’ (Luke 2:14)
Have you experienced this peace of God? Jesus came to favor you, and give you peace – now and forevermore. This is the story of the gospel, from the beginning to the end of all scripture – God's peace in places of quiet, and in spaces of noise. (Psalm 23:2; 42:7) God’s peace comes to and through you, as Spirit. Call on Jesus today, and be filled with peace.
‘Jesus said, ‘I am the door and whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out and find pasture.’’ John 10:9
