It’s no secret we live in an era, in which information travels at the speed of light. Whether it’s a socio-political up rise from half way across the world, or what your neighbor’s having for dinner on #MeatlessMonday, getting the latest “news”, is as easy as refreshing your social media feed. However, in all the noise/information buzzing around us constantly, finding peace can be a trying task onto itself.
Unless we have tapped into what God has intended for us regarding peace.
What we must keep in mind, is that peace is not a thing to be acquired. The gift of peace already lives in us. Getting to that peaceful inner place, may be easier for some than others. However, with practice and patience we all have the ability to find it.
Some may call it meditation, others may just call it quiet time. However you refer to it, peace is vital in connecting with our spiritual selves and more importantly our maker.
In Mark 4:39 we see how Jesus speaks to the wind , and it gives us definitive direction in getting to our own peace:
And He arose, and rebuked the wind and said unto the sea, “Peace, be still.” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
Command your chaos to cease, and simply be still.
