Understanding our covenant relationship with God is crucial, for His words show us with great urgency that the most blessed, highly favored, and safest place for you, as a believer, is in God’s encompassing hands, especially as we move through 2020.
I can tell you now that I’ve never felt such peace and known such determination in my soul. In truth, my precious partner, we have no place else to go but back into His arms, and worshipping at His beautiful nail-scarred feet.
Regardless of where you are right now with the Lord, the only place of rest and peace is at His feet. Away from Him are chaos, confusion, and pain. Only at the feet of Jesus Christ do we find peace for the soul and assurance in our hearts.
We are promised, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You” (Isaiah 26:3).
Isaiah 40:31 (NLV) tells us:
“They who wait upon the Lord will get new strength. They will rise up with wings like eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not become weak.”
Doesn’t the Bible tell us that in His presence is the fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11)?
I urge you today with all my heart to find the “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding” (Philippians 4:7).
Like the formerly demon-filled man sitting at the feet of Jesus or the disciples on the ship’s deck after Jesus calmed the storm, you can find true peace only in the blessed presence of Jesus.
Only there at His feet can you find His substance and everlasting glory.
Only there can you discover how His peace fills your life to the point that nothing can offend you.
Only there can you lift your voice with so many other saints who have sung these words to this old hymn, even when the circumstances seemed otherwise:
Peace, peace! wonderful peace, Coming down from the Father above, Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray, In fathomless billows of love.
I want to encourage you today, for I know that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
Because you are a covenant person, God will take care of you, even in times of fear, desperation, and panic. While the world struggles, you can rejoice, for the Word of God clearly states things that may affect the world don’t have to control you!
Because of Christ’s death on Calvary’s cross, you have a new covenant with God, for “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
