During times of disbelief over things of this world, I cling to the word more than any other time. My prayer life seems to consume more minutes of my days than anything else. I lay awake at night in prayerful thought, consideration and more desperation for the Lord Jesus Christ to hear my prayer. At times I feel as though I am pleading for His will to line up with my hopes. In the end, I trust He knows what’s best and He will take care to bring me closer to Him in my thoughts, and also in my prayers.
Psalm 119: 49-56
Remember you word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise give me life. The insolent utterly deride me, but I do not turn away from your law. When I think of you rules from of old, I take comfort, O Lord. Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked, who forsake your law. Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my sojourning. I remember your name in the night, O Lord, and keep your law. This blessing has fallen to me that I have kept your precepts.
As a great deal has plagued my thoughts and rocked my world this past two weeks, I find peace in Him and in the promises yet to come. I find grace in the promises already given and I find hope in a creator who is perfect in every possible way.
Where do you find peace? Do you look for worldly wonders and human nature to give you peace? Or do you seek Jesus and the Word to sustain and keep you? Again I ask, Where do You find peace?
