Achieving God’s gift of peace is one of the best qualities we Christians can possess. The moment we lose this sense of peace with God, we instantly become flooded with anxiety or fear which often leads to depression.
Every day, most of us battle through obstacles and problems in our lives. This makes it easy for us to lose our composure and sometimes, we find ourselves digging our own ditch. Even the Apostle Peter isn’t exempt from these trying times. He started to lose his peace when he walked on water and instead of keeping his eyes focused on the Lord; he started looking at the frightening waves.
Christians are gifted in that we are given the peace of Christ through the Holy Spirit. It is one of the greatest fruits of the Holy Spirit. As long as we acknowledge this, we will have a more meaningful life. There won’t be any need for us to fear since we’ll have the strength to stand up through life’s darkest moments.
Our idea of peace is not enough to weather out the toughest clouds that come our way. It’s important to have a deep foundation of peace set up in our hearts and minds if we don’t want to waver. It is God Himself that’s the source of peace. When we accept Him, we receive his Holy Spirit into our lives too. It is through the Spirit that we can achieve even the most impossible things.
If you are struggling to achieve this divine peace, take time out and pray. Ask for guidance from the Lord and pray that He will allow the Holy Spirit to effect some changes into your life. Pretty soon, you’ll realize that all that fear, hate, or anxiety will disappear.
It’s no secret that the end of times is upon us. If you look around you, many people are struggling with fear and uncertainty in their lives. You don’t have to go through this. Despite all of the bad things happening around us, we can continue to have peace of mind with the help of the Holy Spirit.
In the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit is referred to as the Helper. This is quite fitting since He can assist you in every single aspect of your life. He won’t hesitate to share His divine peace; all you need to do is learn to ask.
Again, if you’re currently in a limbo, go to the Lord and ask Him to take over your life. Allow His Spirit to give your soul peace of mind so you can continue to become a great vessel for Him.
