Is your soul anxious or overwhelmed with turmoil? Do you long for peace without worrying about what will happen to you? We are all touched with anxiety occasionally, even those who are at peace with God. If you are at a loss or feeling desperate continually without any relief, you need a check-up to find out what’s causing your desperation. Among all the wonder we hold so dearly this time of celebrating our Christ's birth, there is a somewhat frightening promise, especially if you are dealing with a mental challenge. Observe the following verse.
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” Luke 2:14
Your check-up should start with an evaluation of your life to see if you’ve made Jesus your ultimate King. If you’ve read your Bible at all, you will know that the way to please God is to accept His Son as your very own; in him, you will find peace, even in desperate times. That verse alone can cause fear, especially if you’re going through a trial of sorts, but have no fear if your soul is calmed by speaking his name. When I’m troubled, I reach out to Jesus by calling his name, and my peace returns to me. Know this; God is pleased with you if you love his son Jesus.
