Obtaining Peace In Difficult Times

I review of 2 Thessalonians 3:16 it says, “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way.”

Bottom Line:
The Lord of peace Himself can give you peace in every way.

What this means to me:
When I look to and trust him, my Lord of peace himself will give me his peace no matter what is taking place around me.

I know from my own practical experience, (especially lately with the completion of a large project to relocate one of my clients data centers,) that when I focus on the Lord, and trust Him with my situation, that he grants a peace that is unexplainable.

What I’m learning is that peace is not the absence of conflict, but rather the presence of God no  matter what the conflict is. Regardless of what’s going on, It’s good to remember that God has not forsaken me, for I matter to him.  

Everyone in this life will face trials. As long as I’m still breathing, obstacles will come my way. I need to know that if God can bring me to it, He can bring me out of it. There is no need for me to run away from a problem in fear; rather I should face it head-on, knowing if I’m on God’s team, I can defeat any enemy.

No matter how enormous the challenge is, instead of worrying about it, I should put my trust in Him. When I ask Him to make my problem as His own, He will saturate my life with peace.
