These next three letters all linked together which is why I waited so I could put them all together in one post… (and I may have been a bit busy for a few days, but not making that an excuse… )
P is for Peace… My God is Peace.. He is all Peace…
John 14:27 is a favourite verse of mine…
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Many, many, many times peace is promised to different people. But for me personally I know that God is my Peace, Peace that goes beyond understanding. In hard times, in trials, I can feel God whispering Peace to me. Knowing that He is in control, that He is watching over me and that He is for me, brings such Joy and Peace that no one can take away.
Q is for quiet… I am not saying that God is quiet, that He is hard to hear, but that He uses His still small voice to speak. I often hear His whispers, His beautiful wooing of me. In Song of Songs chapter 2 it is a beautiful picture of this calling.
I love going to a quiet place and just being alone with God, just me and Him and hearing the waves, birds, wind, and hearing God’s gentle, quiet voice soothe me, give me peace and bring me to a place of rest.
R is for Rest… My God give me rest. No matter how busy I am or what I am running around doing, I can rest in God.
Isaiah 40 :28 – 31 says
Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint
We renew our strength in God, we shall not be weary, not faint, when we rest in God and renew our strength in Him.
I am so thankful to Him for being my Peace, that still small voice in my Quiet place and that He is my Rest… Without these 3 things life would be very stressful and tiring…
See you later for S…
