I have started praying ever since I knew that God exists, and I am happy to report that He has taken good care of me. There is really no reason to worry when we trust in God.
The Scriptures have become my lifeline in that they appear to me like corrective lenses through which I can view the Big Three more clearly: God, humanity, and the world; and they help me understand how best to relate to the Big Three. One of the many ways God has sided with us is using our language. We can literally discover Him when we open the Bible and start reading.
God communicates. God breathes His Spirit through His Word. God’s Word brings life. God spoke the universe into existence and He also speaks life over our dead human spirit. He wants to revive us. That’s the spiritual reality which offers an amazing opportunity, a wide open door for every person on this planet.
When after His resurrection Jesus entered the room where His followers were hiding He came with peace. “Peace be with you!” He said. His presence immediately turned everything around. Jesus still has this effect on people. He currently prays for you and me; and peace is what He speaks over our anxious souls.
The peace of God is balm for our souls. His peace makes everything better, even in the worst of circumstances. It’s a peace that no one can explain intelligibly. God just is and so is His peace. We will find peace in His presence simply because we belong with Him. We all came from God. Our souls inside us know that, and our souls long to return. We need to follow the prodding of our souls. Returning to God closes the cycle and makes everything complete. That’s the secret of God’s peace.
