Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
Thought for the Day by Simon James-Morse (Minister of Goldstone Church)
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. (2 Thessalonians 3:16)
Most of us know the words of John 3:16 by heart, but perhaps 2 Thessalonians 3:16 should also be added to our memory banks.
The Apostle Paul concludes his letter to the church in Thessalonica by praying a profound blessing of peace over their lives. During seasons of difficulty, suffering and even persecution, we who have put our faith in Jesus can experience an unshakeable, divine peace. The constant presence of Jesus in our lives helps us to walk forward with calm; we are confident that He is sovereign over our circumstances.
God’s presence with us is not wishful thinking; this is a promise from His Word – and He always keeps His word! See Joshua 1:9, Isaiah 41:10, Zephaniah 3:17 and Matthew 28:20.
God’s peace is always available to us – and in every way. Jesus is our peace, and through the power of the Holy Spirit His presence is always with us. His grace will guide us step by step and fill us with peace – even when we face problems and difficulties.
Dear Lord, fill me to overflowing with Your peace today. Help me to focus on Your holy presence, not on my problems. Amen
