Peace Under His Sun

 1.10.10

We are journeying under His sun daily,  fighting a battle against our flesh, against the world, against the devil; we find a corner in our home and sit while everything is revolving around.

Eugène Delacroix: The Storm on the Sea of Galilee, 1854

Do you feel like you are losing your peace?

Peace, a beautiful word, a great longing of our soul, yet so misunderstood.  Peace, my dear friend, first of all cannot be found elsewhere but in Jesus; true peace is only found when we know that our sins have been washed away by His blood.

I am not talking here about that kind of peace that many "Christians" pursue nowadays; they live in sin, but they say that their soul is not troubled and they are at peace, so it should be ok. O, I have heard this, it breaks my heart to see people deceiving themselves and mocking God. This is not the peace I am talking here.

The perfect peace I am talking about is that which comes from God the Father to his own; is that peace which is a gift from God to those who honor and fear His name.

I am talking about the peace that perseveres and walks hand in hand with our trust in God's Word.

"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

Read again the Bible verse, read the promise...God is not only the one who gives us true peace, but He is the Keeper of our peace. He keeps us in perfect peace. He does that.

He keeps us in perfect peace, he we watch the news, and when our husband job is not going well, He keeps us in perfect peace when we have work to do and we are in that 28 days' cycle,  we are kept in peace.

God is the one who keeps us in peace, but He asks one thing from us here, perseverance.

He asks us to stay our minds upon Him.

We must persevere in His Word; this the way to live in His perfect peace under His sun.

Let us abide in His word.

Let us read the Word, let us drink from it until our soul finds rest; let us memorize it, meditate upon it. This is the only way to pursue true peace.

We easily "lose our peace", not because God has left us, but because we have not been persevering on the meditation of His Word.

Listen to the words of your mouth, listen to the thoughts of your mind. Is the Word of God reigning in you? Are you abiding in the Word?


 "If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.  If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full." John 15: 7-11 ESV

May your journey today be peaceful, full of Him, full of His Word.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
