The world is a scary place, but our hope is in Jesus. He does give us peace. Have you notice your mind maybe worried or even fearful about something, but something inside you is peaceful despite of it. I have experience His peace when I was going through a terrifying time and the peace was so strong, despite of my fears. It was living and I realised it was Jesus Himself. Jesus lives in us. We may still have to go through hard times, but Jesus does give us His peace. He is our only hope in this world. His truths are all sane. Whereas what the world calls truth is all fantasy. Sooner or later the truth will prove itself. It will stand. Truth will not bow down to lies. When we practise what Jesus teaches us we are building our house on rock and when the storm comes your house will remain standing. But people who live out their fantasies are building their houses on sinking sand. And when the storms hit, the house will come tumbling down. The fuller version is found in Luke 6:48-49.
He is like a man building a house who dug and made deep and placed the foundation upon the rock: and when the flood came the river burst upon the house and it was not able to shake it because it was well built. But the one who heard and did not do is like a man who built a house upon the ground without a foundation, which the river beat against and it immediately collapsed and there was a great ruin of that house. One New Man Bible translation.
We hear these verses so often and fail to see the depth of what Jesus is teaching us. There is only one truth and that is what Jesus teaches us. His commandments are beautiful and people who obey them in His Spirit become beautiful people.
1 Corinthians 1:25
This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.
When we learn to trust God that is the greatest day of our lives. Because trusting in Him gives us His peace, wisdom and courage to live our lives victoriously in Him.
