INWARD PEACE

REASON AND ASSUMPTION Matthew 6_25 (1).png

“He will redeem my soul in peace from the battle which is against me, for they are many who strive with me” (Psalms 55:18).

It’s as the psalmist commits to pray continually (v.16-17) that he will come to be sustained by an inward peace that only the fellowship of God’s presence offers. Those who turn to prayer only when the circumstances of life turn against them will never know such peace and will be destined, instead, only for frustration and disillusionment that their quid pro quo transactions with God continually go unfulfilled. Peace comes to those who pray because of who God is, but never for those having reduced him down to a divine “Jack-in-the-box,” who performs on demand.
