“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4: 4, 6, 7 King James Version

We live in a world that is full of chaos. It seems like we just get one problem solved and another one worse than the last one hits us. Our lives are filled with crowded schedules and so many demands on our time that we find it difficult to read the Bible or take time to talk to Jesus. Because the cost of living is so high, often both parents have to work to pay the bills and put food on the table. Our cars break down which brings an unexpected expense and once again we are faced with another crisis and we don’t have the money to fix the car. There are times when we become a little desperate and wonder if we will ever have peace in our lives.

There are so many people having marital problems, people with broken hearts, financial difficulties, and children who have become rebellious, disobedient and disrespectful to everyone. How can we ever find peace in the midst of all this chaos? There is only one solution to this escalating problem of chaos, and His name is Jesus! He is the only one who can bring peace, a lasting peace, in this world of confusion. When we are burdened with what seems to be a situation that is impossible to fix or conquer, it is then that we need to cry out to Jesus for help.

It doesn’t matter what chaos this world is in or how many deadlines we have, Jesus can bring peace to any situation and to our hearts if we will but call upon Him and then get out of the way and allow Him to fix it. So often we are guilty of asking Him for help but as soon as we say “Amen” we start worrying about the situation again and try to find a solution. Jesus not only brings peace to our heart and to our circumstances; He is our peace. What a privilege to not only be Loved by the Saviour of the world, but to have this lasting peace in our hearts. If you have confusion and turmoil in your heart, give it to Jesus and let His peace fill your heart.
