So many of us need peace! The noise surrounding us can be deafening. Think about the trials you are going through right now, is it just noise? If you didn’t have to listen to the voices screaming at you, would it be easier to go through that trial? In the things that I have dealt with, the chatter around it was what frightened me the most. “The armies are coming, the armies are coming! Prepare for battle!” We become gripped with fear, but when the battle comes, it was only one tiny soldier screaming, and they were easily defeated! The devil tends to hype things up to get us anxious, and full of dread, when all along, if we had listened to God, and trusted in Him, our fears would have been relieved. Today, give some thought to the voices you are hearing. Make a determination whether the voice is God’s, or the enemy’s. Remember, the enemy will stir you into a frenzy causing your peace to be disturbed, but God brings peace to those who love Him.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock. Isaiah 26:3-4
