The Peace You Can’t Understand

Luke 12:25, 26, “And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?”

I admit it. I’m a worry wart…especially when it concerns my kids or money. That is why these last two weeks have been miraculous.

My husband was laid off, and thanks to a computer glitch, unemployment will be delayed for another two to three weeks!

But I have peace, and that is the miracle! Each day I get up and go through my tasks the same as I did when he was working.

It doesn’t make sense. That is why God’s peace is referred to as “the peace that passes understanding.”

You can have that peace, too. Taking that step is as easy as “A, B, C”:

  1. Accept that you are a sinner.
  2. Believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for that sin.
  3. Confess to someone the decision you just made.

When you make this decision, you become born again. You will have a new spirit, God’s Spirit, living in you. That is the source of all peace.
