“GOD’S PEACE is the treasure of treasures: the pearl of great price. It is an exquisitely costly gift, both for the Giver and the receiver. JESUS CHRIST, The LORD purchased this Peace for you with HIS blood. You receive this gift by trusting The LORD in the midst of life’s storms. If you have the world’s peace—everything going your way—you don’t seek GOD’S unfathomable Peace. Thank GOD when things do not go your way, because spiritual blessings come wrapped in trials. Adverse circumstances are normal in a fallen world. Expect them each day. Rejoice in the face of hardship, for The LORD has overcome the world.”
. . . who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. MATTHEW 13 : 46 (NKJV)
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds. JAMES 1 : 2
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” JOHN 16 : 33
Prayer: Lord cover me with your peace, the pearl you bought with your very life for me. For the spirit of heaviness – Put on the garment of praise. This is how I fight my battles – It may look like I’m surrounded but I’m surrounded by you. This is how I fight my battles. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
