To find peace, sometimes you have to be willing to lose your connection with the people, places, and things that create all the noise in your life. -Unknown
God’s peace is not the calm after the storm. It’s the steadfastness during it. God will continue dealing with us until we learn how to stay peaceful in the storm. Nothing shows our spiritual maturity more than staying calm when our circumstances are not calm. Stability is a sign of maturity, and the more mature we are, the more God can trust us with His power and blessings.
For only we who believe can enter his rest. As for the others, God said, “In my anger I took an oath: They will never enter my place of rest,” even though this rest has been ready since he made the world.
Hebrews 4:3 NLT
Here’s some ways to find peace while in the midst of a storm:
• Learn to trust yourself.
• Ease your expectations.
• Open up to someone you trust.
• Use hope to drive positive action.
• Move towards something instead of away.
Remember, when you feel frustrated or upset, or if you have lost your peace and your joy, ask yourself, am I believing God’s Word? The only way to be free from struggling is to believe the Word and obey whatever Jesus puts in your heart to do. Believing God’s Word delivers you from struggling so you can rest in the promises of God with no doubts. Now, repeat after me, I believe God and His Word, and by trusting Him, I enter His rest.
