July – Prayer is the spiritual substance to obtain internal peace.
Life can be challenging. Life can be chaotic. Life has its ups and its fair share of downs. When going through life in this current society, it’s often difficult to find or capture any moments of peace during so much adversity and fighting to live with burdensome circumstances.
When trying to handle the day-to-day responsibilities of either working to keep bills paid, children fed an in line, a spouse happy, a smile on your face while dealing with disruptive coworkers and/or your sanity, it often appears that satan is winning against your peace, and he won’t let up. You began to wonder if you are ever going to catch a break and depression settles because you start to believe that it is impossible for you to obtain any form of peace in the midst of all the chaos happening in your life.
However, there is a solution, an answer to what seems to be impossible – prayer. The Lord states,
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.Isaiah 26:3 – King James Version
It is through prayer where you will encounter God’s sovereign grace and unlock His unfeigned and unfaltering peace by placing your trust in Him to give you strength and wisdom to navigate your responsibilities and tribulations. With this in mind, regardless of what’s going on in your life, no matter how chaotic and burdensome it may be, you will be able to sustain a level peace that will allow you to walk through trials and tribulations with ease as longs as you are continually engaging with God through prayer.
