One way we can pursue peace is to enjoy the moment. Discover something special each day, and take time to enjoy every moment this Christmas.

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer,

I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

God doesn’t promise that our lives will easy. We are told that we will face hardships. In this world of sin, life is fraught with tribulation. But there is a silver lining. Jesus has overcome this world! In Jesus we can find peace. Rest in Him today.

Now it is your turn!

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27

 

I missed sharing a Bible verse with you last week. I had come down with Influenza-A. Oh, the flu is a nasty bug. It sure wiped me out. I was down for the count. A week later and I’m starting to feel more like myself.

Today, I thought I’d share with you about peace. God wants us to have peace. To rest completely in Him. No worry, no concern. Just complete trust in His perfect plan for our lives.

Whatever burdens you are carrying. Take them to Jesus. Lay them down at His feet. He will give you rest.

 

Now it is your turn!

May the God of HOPE fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with HOPE
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The great Advent hope provides a correct perspective for life and a true identity as well as encourages and brings lasting joy.

I pray that this Christmas season you and your family will find time to enjoy the joy of salvation and have the mind of Jesus, the model of humility.

His Encouragement: Biblical Inspiration for your Thursday (week #16)

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

 

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may
have peace. In the world you will have tribulation;
but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

John 16:33

 

In the verse, Jesus is talking to his disciples. He’s telling them of things to come, things they do not understand. He wants them to know that there will be trials and tribulations, but to remember that He has already overcome the world.

This message is in no less important to us today. There have been and will continue to be trials and tribulations. There will be things that we don’t understand. But God doesn’t want us to worry. He wants us to rest in the knowledge that He has already overcome the world. Victory belongs to God!

My friends, I don’t know what trials you may be facing today, or what tribulations lie in your future; but my prayer for you is that whatever may come, that you remember that God has already won! Give your burdens to Him, and rest. He’s already won the battle!

 

Now it is your turn!

His Encouragement: Biblical Inspiration for your Thursday (week #13)

Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.

I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!

 

Today’s Thursday Encouragement:

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication,
with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your heart and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7

 

At it’s most basic, prayer is talking to God. You don’t need big flashy, splashy prayers, written out ahead of time and checked for grammar. Just tell God what is on your heart.

Paul tells us in Romans 8:26 “For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”

Take time today, to give the burden on your heart to God. When you find those pesky burdens have somehow made their way back into your hands, just give them back again, until they stay with God.

Rest in the knowledge that God will give you peace in return.

 

Now it is your turn!
