The world bombards us now with so many information and unless we are careful with what we put into our minds, we will get lost in what we hear and see.
The world itself is already full of chaos and confusion. And along with that, our inner being is also put into the test as to how we can pursue peace. Yet whatever we are going through, God will see us through.
The God of Peace reminds us of our true identity in Christ in which our heart and mind can rest secure, knowing that He who loved us is in control.
Sometimes in the desire of being liked by others or be like the rest, we lose our true identity in Christ. That we are enough. That we are loved. And that is liberating.
It gives us the freedom to keep in step with the spirit rather than be controlled by the desires of the world. And true freedom is not doing everything we can do but rather the freedom to do the good for in it there is lasting peace, the peace that comes from above.
Freedom without restraint can be disastrous to our souls. But freedom anchored on how much Christ has done in our lives allows us to live our lives for Him, to be slaves of righteousness and not of sin.
And there is joy in it because there is complete joy in Him. And He alone can give joy along with peace that transcends all understanding. ✍
