Peace and prosperity

Dear friend, God promises today that He will give peace to your borders and satisfy you with the finest of wheat (Psalm 147:14). The Lord is going to grant peace to you in your home, in your workplace and among your neighbours. Don’t worry. Nothing will be able to harm you. I remember a story in which a king calls everyone in his nation to draw pictures depicting peace. He said they can draw whatever feels peaceful to each one of them. Each person drew different things. Some drew mountains. Others drew flowers. Some others drew birds.

When everyone looked at a particular painting, they saw beautiful mountains and rivers in it. They thought this painting will surely win. But the king comes and shows a different painting that was apt for the topic. That painting had so much of rainfall, thunder and lightning but the beauty of that painting was that in a small nest on a tree the birds were happily chirping. That was the painting that was awarded. Always remember my friend, though there is always chaos and confusion in the world, the Lord will give you peace.
Just like how the birds were sitting happily in their nest, God will keep your heart glad no matter what happens around you. Even though the situations might be bad in this world, God’s peace will guard your heart. Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27) So the Lord will fill you with the peace of the Lord and not from the world. He will provide all that you need and prosper you. Just fix your mind on the Lord. That is all you need to do. We also read, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” (Isaiah 26:3) So let us believe this promise and thank Him for this promise.

Fill my heart, family and workplace with Your peace. Let nothing harm me or disturb my mind. Help me to trust in You and find rest in You.  Just as the birds of the air and flowers of the field rest in Your care let my heart and mind also be guarded by Your peace and let me also rest secure in You.

In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.
