Many people will say that they want peace in their lives. However, when we reflect on our lives, we may see times when we do not accept opportunities for peace in our lives. As author George Orwell reminded us, "Happiness can exist only in acceptance."
God sent Jesus to earth to offer us a pathway to eternal life. Through God's plan and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have been offered a redemptive peace that only God can provide. However, we cannot be truly happy without accepting God's offer to us. We can have peace from God, but we need to accept it!
God is offering you a peace that only He can provide. Accept it!
Thank You for the peace that You provide in my life. Help me to always accept that peace that You offer. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
