If there's one thing we all need at the moment, it's peace. The great thing about the peace of God is that it doesn't rely on our circumstances. You can enjoy the peace of God, even in the middle of a pandemic. Verse 6 and 7 of Philippians 4 says, Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God. Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.
So how do we get this peace?
1. Pray about the things you're worried about.
2. Be grateful for what you have.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 as required.
Our peace is based on the fact that this life is temporary and that we have eternity with God to look forward to - an eternity without viruses or pandemics, without greed and selfishness.
Challenge: Write the things down that you're worried about and give them to God. Keep them in your prayer journal, shred them, throw them in the bin, burn them (with adult supervision).
