“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” -Romans 8:28

Life gets tough. When you are waiting and thinking about the unknown or what could be, you can become anxious and worried. Don’t think upon the unknown. Concentrate on what you DO know: God is love. God is good. He is working all things together for your good. Focus on what you do know and you will have peace.

Scripture at Sunrise 2.12.2019

“And the Lord said unto Abraham, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward, for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” -Genesis 13:14-15

A special blessing for a memorable occasion. Abram had settled a family dispute. He had said, “Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between thee and me, for we be brethren”; and hence he received the blessing which belongs to peacemakers. The Lord and giver of peace delights to manifest His grace to those who seek peace and pursue it. If we desire closer communion with God, we must keep closer to the ways of peace.

Abram had behaved very generously to his kinsman, giving him his choice of the land. If we deny ourselves for peace’s sake, the Lord will more than make it up to us. As far as the patriarch can see, he can claim, and we may do the like by faith. Abram had to wait for the actual possession, but the Lord entailed the land upon him and his posterity. Boundless blessings belong to us by covenant gift. All things are ours. When we please the Lord, He makes us to look everywhere and see all things our own, whether things present or things to come, all are ours, and we are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
Can we have peace in the midst of any trial? When we’re under pressure, facing “the big squeeze”, cheer up! Be of a strong heart. Take courage! Why? Because Jesus has overcome the world. He will never fail you. He will never leave you. He’s reliable. He can truly be trusted. He loves you unconditionally. He is your hope.
