Do you have peace? Or are you finding it hard to rest in the Lord and let God’s peace comfort and sustain you? Lately I have been feeling much unrest about different situations in my life. Since I don’t know the future, the only choice I have is to pray for the peace of God, who alone knows all things! There are many Scriptural encouragements that can help us feel peace despite our circumstances. Here are a few I’d like to share with you today!
