Peace in the Midst of Storms

Is it really possible to feel peace in the midst of the storms of life? People everywhere are searching for peace. They need power to cope with the storms in their lives. I do believe it is possible to have that peace. Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Money cannot buy peace, intellect cannot procure it, wisdom cannot attain it, and you can never hope by your own effort to secure it. God offers it to you as a gift. Inner peace is when we understand that we have all sinned. Our sin separates us from God. However, God made a way by sending His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sin. So we confess our sins and acknowledge what Christ has done for us on the cross. Then we decide to turn from our old way of doing things, live by the Word of God that transforms our lives, and let Him lead us each day. Then at that moment we receive the power of the Holy Spirit to cope with the storms of life. In placing our trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior we will receive peace. Storms will come, but now we will have the Lord to go through the storms with us. John 14:27 says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives, do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
