Happy Tuesday Saints.
In John 14:27 Jesus said “MY PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU; MY PEACE I GIVE YOU. I DO NOT GIVE TO YOU AS THE WORLD GIVES TO YOU. DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED AND DO NOT BE AFRAID.”
It’s easy during these turbulent times to forget that the Lord really wants us to enjoy an abundant life that is filled with His presence and peace.
The pandemic has resulted in some “new normals” but you need to make sure that your new normal does not include stress, anxiety, fear, strife, tension, turmoil, chaos or confusion.
If you’re not careful, your surroundings can make you accept things that you wouldn’t dare embrace pre-covid.
So instead of pursuing the abundant life that Jesus promises, some are settling for misery and despair. Instead of enjoying God’s peace, some have allowed suspicion and distress to become regular parts of their existence.
Stress doesn’t have to be your “new normal.” Strife doesn’t have to be your “new normal.” Fear doesn’t have to be your “new normal.” Anger doesn’t have to be your “new normal.”
Have you accepted some destructive “new normals” that are choking the life out of you? Don’t let the Delta Variant of Covid 19 introduce you to a fresh form of chaos that seems quite natural and normal.
Your current circumstances don’t have to determine your current experience with the Lord. You are created in the image of God and you can experience His love, peace and joy today. Enjoy your liberty in Christ and don’t settle for anything less.
God bless and lots’a love, Warren
