Uncertain Times

The tragic events of last year have left an indelible mark upon America, and things will never again be the same. Who knows what mischief lies ahead in the hearts and plans of evil men? By the time you read this message, some new terror may again strike this land.
In the midst of the confusion in this world, it is consoling to know that we have peace in Christ our Lord. Jesus said, ?Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful? (John 14:27).
Our ultimate peace lies not in the strength of our nation?s military but in the power of God to deliver us from the evil one (Matt. 6:9-13; 2 Tim. 4:17-18). Because of this, it behooves all of us to be at peace with God. Peace within begins with peace with God.
If you are anxious, remember that God invites you to cast your cares upon Him, because He cares about you (1 Pet. 5:7). Paul advises us to stop worrying about anything, but to let our requests be known to God (Phil. 4:6). The result is that the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (4:7).
Whatever happens, good or evil, we cannot be separated from the unconquerable love of God (Rom. 8:35-39).
