30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 17

Day 17: Prince of Peace

Troubled times, difficult times, hard times… everyone I know is going through something. I can think of a ton of different encouraging quotes about pressing through and not giving up, all of them hold value and truth yet we struggle still. Yesterday was a “bad” migraine day for me. So bad I was dizzy and seemed to be operating in a haze of complete confusion. These are not mere headaches, they become completely debilitating. The migraines are winning Poppa, I cried as I entered my morning prayer and devotion time, already feeling a pounding behind my right eye. Today’s devotion was in line with what I heard Him whisper, I am YOUR peace, YOUR calm in the storm. “Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” ~ Psalm 55:22 I worry about things I can’t change. My migraine “triggers” are so difficult to rein in because I let things bother me that are out of my control. People in all aspects of my life take advantage of the God in me, my heart. I take on more than I can handle, I try to do more than I’m able, I give more than I have. I put up with snide comments and extra responsibilities on a daily basis. You weren’t created for that daughter. Tighten your circle and watch those headaches lessen. I realized this morning I needed to spend more time in the presence of God and less time worrying. Worry means to give way to anxiety or unease; allow one’s mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles. The moment worry or unrest tries to enter my spirit I need to tell it to flee and remember 1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” We have the ultimate Prince of Peace. The devil seeks to destroy that peace and disrupt communication with God. Silly devil, God is our peace in times of trouble. Life won’t always be perfect, but we serve the One who is. Allow Him to calm your troubled waters! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

💙 Thank You Father God for being my Prince of Peace! 💙

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. ~ Isaiah 9:6

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof. ~ Matthew 6:34

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. ~Colossians 3:15

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord [be] with you all. ~ 2 Thessalonians 3:16

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:6-7

25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? ~ Matthew 6:25-27

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. ~ Revelation 19:6

And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. ~ Revelation 19:16
