2016 Frieda P. Smith
I was reading a news article this morning that reported the recent incidents of terrorism. The article headlined these words, “When will it stop?”
The answer to the question is: Never.
Jesus spoke these words to His Disciples, recorded in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
You see, my friends, when sin entered the world (back in the Garden of Eden), God’s plan for a peaceful, stress-free life went out the window! It has been all downhill ever since!
God has allowed us to enjoy periodic moments of peace, but tribulation is always around the corner. Pain and suffering are around the bend.
Combined with the blatant disregard for His Word and outright immorality, we should also acknowledge that idolatry and wickedness in the world has resulted in the loss of God’s favor.
Our only hope now is the inner peace Jesus Christ has offered, because there is very little peace to be found around us.
The reason I can still sing, “It is well with my soul,” while in the valley is because I have inner peace with Jesus Christ.
Peace is available to you, too.
