Strength and Peace

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 9, 2012

“The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.” Psalm 29:11

God gives strength and peace to those surrendered to Him. The benefits of being a dedicated believer in Jesus Christ include heaven’s infinite resources. Sin sucks life from the soul and replaces it with fear, while faith compounds calm and offers energy. Man’s methods may manipulate a false feeling of security, but God gives eternal security. Strength in the Lord replaces worry with hope—it’s what gets us through demanding days.

How can we access Christ’s calm and mighty power? What is the wisest route to experience the Almighty’s assets on an ongoing process?  When we daily die to self and come alive to Christ we position ourselves to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. So, strength and peace come from giving in to God, not giving up on God. As we surrender to our Savior Jesus, we win—indeed it’s where we confess our weaknesses that we become strong.

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.” 1 Timothy 1:12-13

For example, unresolved anger loses its control when you admit its influence and exile its occupation of your heart. Shame from past experiences dissolves in the face of your heavenly Father’s love and forgiveness. You are freed up to flourish in faithful living when you embrace God’s ownership of your life. The Lord provides for His own. He stewards well His servants. Because God possesses you, He gives you exactly what you need.

Your ongoing strength and peace is a by-product of  belonging to Christ. Resilience grows as your mind marinates on your Master Jesus’ principles for living. Resolve is a rock of refuge when heaven is your hope. Peace is a significant allocation in your portfolio of faith that is generously given by your heavenly Father. Thus, thank Him for His help. And prayerfully look around you for others you can help find strength and peace in God.

“And Saul’s son Jonathan went to David at Horesh and helped him find strength in God.” I Samuel 23:16

Prayer: Lord I surrender to your ownership of my life, I trust you for strength and peace.

  4. I’m the co-founder of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to expand my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I considered that the best way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anyone could suggest a qualified web site where I can buy CBD Shop Database I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable solution and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
