Pray for Kings

1Tim 2:1-3 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior

Dear friends, I thank God for the freedom that we enjoy in many nations in this world to worship Jesus in spirit and truth and to proclaim our faith freely. But not every place has this privilege. Always, everywhere, the "spirit of the world" is opposed to the proclaiming of the truth! In the apostolic times, we see the men of God much taunted and persecuted for their passionate preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In such a context, Paul exhorts the church to pray for all people, especially to those who are in authority & the kings especially.

Why should we do this ? Because it's pleasing in God's sight. Because, this prayer will help the authorities to change their mind concerning our faith and will cause us to lead our lives in a quiet & peaceful manner with the precious fruits of godliness & honesty.

These people may even come to the faith!! Verse 4 says: It's God's will that all men are saved and that they should come to the knowledge of Truth. Dear child of God, the Lord has uniquely positioned you to minister the gospel to certain people who may be your friends, relatives and colleagues. No other evangelist may reach them, but the Lord has given them into your hands to lead them to a knowledge of Truth.

A verse in Phil 4:22 is a great encouragement for me. It says: All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar's household. Someone in those times had the anointing and calling to go into the Caesar's palace to proclaim the gospel to them, and as a result many were saved there.

I thank God for all the blessed missionaries who are taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the un-reached nations and people groups. But that leaves a lot of people within our reach - Whom we can reach with the message of God's love, if only we are filled with God's love for them, and boldness for declaring the gospel to them. Like Paul says: we need to come to the stage where we say: I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the power of God to salvation!

Pray for all people without ceasing! Pray for Kings & rulers & governments! Pray for nations! Pray for your near & dear! Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send His chosen ones into the fields. Ask the Lord to show you the people whom you should be reaching with the Gospel. As we pray faithfully, we will see the hand of the Lord moving in our nations and turning the hearts of even the rulers towards the Lord Jesus.

God bless you !

Receiving Spiritual Blessings

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places

This is one of the most profound truths and promises in the New Testament. This reminds us that if we are a real disciple of Jesus, who has been obedient to the commandments of Jesus according to the New Testament pattern, we HAVE already been blessed with ALL spiritual blessings in the heavenly places. Note: 

1-     We are not blessed with some blessings – We are blessed with it all! The full salvation package is ours. Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places is ours to claim and to enjoy !

2-     We are blessed with Spiritual blessings! It’s very easy for a believer to misunderstand that salvation package covers every desire of ours (whether it be spiritual or carnal). But this is not biblical.
3- We are blessed with these spiritual blessings already ! We don't have to wait till we reach heaven for these. 

In Gen 24:10, Eleazar had the full resources of his master as he went out to seek a bride for his master’s son. Abraham is an emblem (or type) of Father God, Isaac is a type of Jesus Christ and Eleazar is a type of the Holy Spirit. Rebekah is the emblem of the bride. The Holy spirit is sent out to prepare a bride for the Lord Jesus and He brings along ALL the blessings that the father God wants us to enjoy. As we are being prepared as the bride of Christ, we need all blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Such huge spiritual blessings are needed for us to escape the corruption that is in the world through lust as the word reminds us in 2 Pet 1:4.

We have abundant spiritual blessings accrued to us in our heavenly bank account. Yet, there is a huge difference between having a million dollars in your bank and being able to use portions of that money as each need comes. In the word of God, we can see some reasons why most of the believers of Christ don’t enjoy the level of spiritual riches that the Lord wants us to enjoy.

Hindrances to Prayer

1.      You do not ask God James 4:2 This may seem very obvious, but millions of Christians don’t enjoy certain spiritual blessings simply because they don’t ask the Lord. You have to ask because you are conscious of the spiritual need. The word of God says: Blessed are the poor in spirit. It’s the contrite and poor in spirit who shall receive their answers to prayer.

2.      You ask with wrong motives – James 4:3 The Lord looks into our heart and one of the main reasons why He will not answer our prayers is that we have wrong motives hidden in our heart. Often, these are so well hidden that we ourselves don’t face these motives as wrong or evil. You ask with the motives of satisfying your own desires (and especially the desires of a worldly kind – as the Lord in the very next verse condemns the worldliness in a Christian – Friendship with the world is enmity with God).

3.      You are double minded and without Faith James 1:6 If we are without faith, if we continue to doubt our God, the word says: we are unstable, double-minded and we shall not receive anything from the Lord. If you see the gospel accounts of Jesus’ healing and deliverance works, often the person receiving the healing had a clear idea as to what they wanted. It's impossible to please God without Faith. Believe in Him and what mighty works He can do for you !

As we correct these above 3 hindrances to prayer, I am sure we would enjoy more of the spiritual blessings that the Lord desires to fill us in our lives.
Ask God ! Ask with a pure heart and motive ! Ask with Faith !

Dear friends, the world has never been as evil as it is now. We need the real power of our Lord in order to survive the earthly life without being defiled. May the Lord grant us a renewed prayer life and a life of greater intimacy with Him in order to appropriate ALL the spiritual blessings of Our Lord in the heavenly places!

God Bless !

Shine as Beacons of Light

Phil 2:15-16 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Jesus Christ says: You are the Light of the World - A city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. The world lies today, in the dominion of the wicked one. The prince of this world has darkened the minds and hearts of the people who do not believe in Christ & His word and overall, the darkness pervades the entire world. The daily news tells us that Mankind has never been so advanced in technology, but never more depraved morally & spiritually.

Into this gross darkness comes the precious Light that the Lord sends forth. This verse above reminds us that WE need to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, in the midst of the evil & perverse & wicked generation which surrounds us. When we eschew evil and when we are blameless, we become the bright lights or beacons which shall lead the world around us to the good news of Jesus. As Paul says: We are the letters that God is writing to the men around us. The world is so in need of a Godly example in the midst of all the immorality and permissive standards. Some may not hear the gospel, but seeing the transformation in us & our holy walk, they shall become desirous of knowing our Lord personally. We cannot sequester ourselves into an ivory tower of righteous living. The gospel has been given to us so that others can see the fruit it produces in us. This fruit comes at a cost.

What is the cost that we should pay ?

1) Hold forth the word of Life - Phil 2:16 – If we don’t have the word of life, we don’t have the real light that the Lord wants us to spread. This is the torch that we hold forth. When we do that, our lives first come under the scrutiny of the word of God. In that light, we are transformed because we are able to see ourselves and the world as the Lord sees it. This means investing time in the word of God and allowing ourselves to be changed by it.

2) Adopt a different attitude towards the world - Jas 4:4 - reminds us that friendship with the evil world is enmity with God. A changed disciple of Jesus can only see the world system in this light. Our value system (which comes from the word of God) is diametrically opposite the world system’s values. Reach out to the world to save them – but don’t be part of the world system and adopt its values.

3) Be innocent of Evil - Rom 16:19 - A rose flower grows up from soil that is full of manure. Yet, it's fragrance is not tainted with the smell of the soil in which it grew. We can't blame the world for the evil works that we do. The Lord wants us to produce the fragrance of the Word of God through us. He wants our lives to be untainted by the stench of the world around us.

4) Live righteously, soberly & in a godly manner - Tit 2:13 - The grace of God is given to us to live in such a manner, denying ourselves the opportunity to give way to ungodly & worldly lusts. It’s this kind of life that makes us prepared for the coming of the Lord. And this is the witness that the lord finally desires through us.

Through such a set of people, the God is still able to turn the world upside down as He did through a band of dedicated disciples in 1st century AD. May the Lord provoke your heart to submit joyfully to this light & easy yoke of being His disciple.
God bless you !

Jesus - Name above every name

Phil 2:9-11 (2:9) Therefore God exalted him to the highest place ​and gave him the name that is above every name, (2:10) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, ​in heaven and on earth and under the earth, (2:11) and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, ​to the glory of God the Father.
Everything about Christian faith begins and comes to perfection in the Person of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He consumes all our thought, our worship and without Him, we lose the fountainhead of our most blessed faith. In fact, the easiest way to check if an assembly or a worship or a church is "Christian" in spirit, is to see if Jesus Christ is exalted & given the pre-eminence. May He be the No.1 in our lives always!
 This verse above reminds us that because Jesus lowered Himself to be the sacrifice on the cross on our behalf and paved way for our salvation, God has highly exalted Christ and given him a name which is above every other name. How privileged are we to know & follow our Lord. The word says: that Exalted Name is given to Him that, every knee in heaven , on earth & under the earth (i.e. all of creation) shall bow before Him and submit to His Lordship and confess that Jesus Christ is indeed Lord.
 There are people on this earth who currently submit to the Lordship of Jesus - Those are His disciples. They love the Lord & walk obediently in the path that His Word shows us. Yet, There are many people of varied radical faith who hate the person of Christ & the way of the Christian. But the word reminds us - that even these people will, at the point of judgment, have to confess Jesus as Lord. But that will be too late. The word of God reminds us to make the decision today so that we can be among the ones who are saved by Christ and not the ones who shall be judged unto damnation by Him. Behold today is the accepted time & the day of salvation!
 The Word of God shows me my sin ; Holy spirit reminds me to seek Christ and turn to Him - the need for a savior; The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross provides for that one perfect sacrifice for my sins on the cross – So that I may come near to God and be born-again as a child of God and live the life of constant reliance on Him, pleasing Him. This, dear friend is the simple plan of salvation that God has kept for us.
 Isa 45:22-24  says: (45:22) "Turn to me and be saved, ​all you ends of the earth; ​for I am God, and there is no other. (45:23) By myself I have sworn, ​my mouth has uttered in all integrity ​a word that will not be revoked: ​Before me every knee will bow; ​by me every tongue will swear. (45:24) They will say of me, 'In the LORD alone ​are righteousness and strength.' " ​All who have raged against him ​will come to him and be put to shame.

Dear friend, Salvation belongs to Christ and we need to confess our sins to Him, repent of our ways and turn to the Lord, that we may live with Jesus & reign with Him forever.

May the Lord's name be exalted in our lives!

Truth will set you Free

John 8:31-32 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

It's so important for the disciple of Christ to abide in (remain continuously in obedience to) the word of God. The real evidence of a new relation with Jesus is the thirst that a person has for the bible and the eternal truths in it. The bible is THE truth and it sheds light on every topic it touches.

Truth about Man's state & Sin

All of us bear the root of sin inside of us. The word of God says: Rom 3:23 - All have sinned and fallen short of God's glory. We are like sheep which has gone astray and every man has turned to his own way. If you shine the light of God's word into our heart, you will be amazed to discover much evil within. This evil often manifests itself as sin of thoughts, words & actions in our life. Isa 64:4 says: We are all as an unclean thing and in God's eyes, our so-called righteous works are as filthy rags and totally unacceptable. Recognizing that we have sinned is a first stage to salvation

Truth about God's anger

God looks at our sin and calls it evil (because He is a Holy God). Because he is a just God, He wants to punish sin. Rom 6:23 says: The wages of sin is death. The wrath of God abides in the sinner.

Truth about God's love

Despite His anger at Sin, He is filled with love for mankind (which He has made as His creation). And He knows man's utter inability to save himself from his sin. So God send himself (i.e. His only Son) to come into the world to bear our sin (John 3:16), to die for us and to save us from our sin (Mat 1:21) if we believe in Him & His perfect sacrifice on the cross (John 1:12). He is not just interested in giving us a position in heaven; He wants to save us completely (to the uttermost) Heb 7:25. Rom 6:23 says the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our lord. Dear friends, this is where we are set free.

Truth about Eternity

We spend much of our lives worrying about our present lives without being mindful of eternity. Use your time wisely to store up riches & life for all of eternity. Accept Jesus as your savior so that you may receive Eternal life. Live the narrow way so that you may live & reign with Jesus forever. (Dan 7:18) This is God's calling for our lives.

Know the truth through the Word of God and be set free from your bondages in your life. When you respect the Word of God, you shall not be ashamed (Psa 119:6). When you hide the Word in your heart, you shall not sin (Psa 119:11). It shall become your joy & it shall counsel you in your life (Psa 119:24). It shall make you alive & fill you with Hope (Psa 119:25,49). It is better than much gold & silver (Psa 119:72) They make me wiser than all around me (Psa 119:98-100). It shows the the way ahead of me and my spiritual direction (Psa 119:105)

Dear friends, let's pray that the Lord will order our steps in His word - that Sin will not have dominion over us , and for His favor to be on us. God bless you.

Touch of Faith

Luke 8:43-48
(8:43) And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, (8:44) Came behind [him], and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. (8:45) And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press [thee], and sayest thou, Who touched me? (8:46) And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. (8:47) And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. (8:48) And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

Meet Jesus at the point of your need

Dear Child of God, We all have various needs in our lives. This portion from the scripture tells us a blessed account of a woman with an issue of blood who received a complete healing at the hands of our Lord. The lesson for us from this person's healing, is the need for Faith in our life. Without faith it is impossible to please God and he that comes to God must believe that He can and will reward your faith. (Heb 11:6) This can be applicable to the physical realm or to the spiritual realm where you can exercise your faith in submission to God to meet the desperate need in your life. Faith is not the end of the Christian journey - For the Word says: you are called not just to believe in Him but to also suffer for His sake (Phil 1:29). But it's the place to start our journey with Jesus.

An outcast - losing life - slowly but steadily

Can you imagine the plight of a person who has a perpetual bleeding for 12 years ? She is a social outcast and cannot be in the presence of others. She cannot marry or fellowship. One with such an illness has to walk about saying "Unclean! Unclean!" in those times to avoid coming into contact with others and defiling others. She is struggling to keep herself alive - there is life in the blood and when the blood is lost, your life is ebbing away. On top of it, here's a person who has been consulting doctors and has lost all the money that she had. (Luk 8:43)

The touch of Faith

When you are at the point of desperation, you're not constrained by social laws of propriety. When this woman saw Jesus, she KNEW that He could heal her and she had faith that she would receive the healing if only she could just touch the hem of His garment. She didn't just stay with that knowledge, but she ACTED on that knowledge and went forth and touched Him - even pressing through the crowds which separated her from the Lord. She closed the gap between herself and God.

There were multitudes about them touching Jesus. But this touch was different. This was a touch that released the power of God into her situation. All the others who thronged Jesus didn't experience the power - only this woman did ! What was different about this touch ? The Lord said (Luk 8:46) that the virtue or power had gone from him. The greek word used there is "δύναμις or Dunamis" - which means power - and this is the source of the words like dynamo/dynamite, etc. The woman's faith had conducted the power of God from the source of that power (Jesus) to produce the healing that she needed !

Faith as a "good conductor" of God's power

Let me illustrate with an example. Let's say I have a power socket (a plug point). And I have a toaster which needs to be connected to the power socket. To connect this , I need to have a wire to plug the toaster to the socket. If I use a rubber string to connect the socket and the toaster, will the toaster switch on ? Surely Not ! Because rubber is a poor conductor of the electric power. But if I use a copper wire which came along with the toaster, the power will surely flow into the toaster and enable it to perform the task it was designed to do. Dear child of God, you have situations which need the power of God in your life. The person of Jesus Christ is the supply of God's power. But this doesn't guarantee that His power will come into your need. You need to have an active faith to allow God to act on your behalf. That faith is the good conductor that conducts God's power into your life needs.

Full healing for the person

At this point (Luk 8:44), the woman received the healing , but it doesn't stop there. Then Jesus asks her to come forward by demanding who touched him. She comes trembling. You see, physical healing that she received at the Lord's hands was not enough for the 12 years of stigma to be removed from her life. She is still cowering and trembling. But the Lord causes her to receive compassion & grace, He calls her a daughter and says: be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. This is how the lord wants us to be in our Life. Not just to be healed - but to be saved. Not just to receive the answers for our prayers by faith - but to be of good comfort, to receive His sonship, to be made whole (complete) & to go away in peace.

Dear friend, Cry out to the Lord for your needs and Touch Him by Faith & see the heavens move in your favor.

Wait Upon The Lord

Psa 40:1 : I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry.

Practically every person I know is waiting for something or the other in their lives. One of the greatest tests we face as a Christian is the test of waiting. There are people who are waiting for the answers to many prayers; some are waiting for their dear ones to be saved by accepting Jesus; Some are waiting for a life partner, some for their broken marriages to be restored, yet others are waiting to receive their promise child, yet others to see the hand of God moving on their children and their salvation; Some are waiting for a healing for their illnesses; People are waiting to be filled with the spirit of God; Some are waiting to get a good job; Many are waiting for a promotion or a deliverance in their jobs; Some are waiting for their ministry doors to open; Some are waiting for God to spark a revival in their midst.
Whatever stage you are in, dear friend, the bible offers precious comfort for those who are facing the stress of waiting.

A word of Caution – Don’t fail this test !
The word of God is replete with examples of people failing their tests of waiting.
  • Saul presumptuously offered a sacrifice when he was tired of waiting for Samuel (1 Sam 13:8-10) and the Lord removed the kingdom from him and gave it to David.
  • In another instance, when Moses was in the mount of God receiving the law from the Lord, the children of Israel grew tired of waiting for Moses to come back and they asked Aaron to make them an idol (Ex 32:1).
  • While Abraham was waiting for the promised child, he tried to help God by fathering an Ishmael (a son of the flesh - who was not even considered as a son by God because God called Isaac as Abraham's only son - Gen 22:2 )
  • And then we have Peter, who got tired of waiting and went fishing along with 6 other chosen ones (Jn 21:3) and would have lost his calling but for the mercy of the Lord.
The period of waiting is a time when the believer may lose his patience and he will try to help God or produce an idol or act presumptuously and do his own thing. Be careful that this is not your response in this season of waiting.

Wait patiently & Expect Him to act
Ps 40:1 says: the psalmist waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord. There is waiting and there is "patient and expectant" waiting. The Lord wants us to cultivate an expectancy and patience while we are waiting for the Lord. Dear child of God, these are the basic qualities of faith - and if you believe in the Lord Jesus, you need to possess these qualities and nurture & grow them. Faith in God demands that we accept His sovereignty and we know that His plans for us are good even when we don't see our life going the way we like to.

Wait for the Lord – Not for His gifts
The other thing is: Often, in our lives, we are waiting for certain things to happen. If you introspect with an honest heart, we are not waiting for God but we are waiting for the physical & spiritual gifts that the Lord can give us! There is a huge difference. We become tired and weary and bitter in our waiting period because our focus is on the circumstances and not on the Lord. The Word says: if you are waiting upon the Lord, you will renew your strength and you will mount up like eagles and we shall not be weary. (Isa 40:31) The Lord says: they that wait on the lord shall not be ashamed ! (Psa 25:3) The Lord says: Blessed are they that wait for Him. (Isa 30:18) Wait on the Lord and He shall save you ! (Prov 20:22)
It’s worth the wait
When I meditate on "waiting for the Lord", I am reminded of some of the barren women who waited before the Lord gave them a child. (Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel, Leah, Manoah’s wife, Hannah, Elisabeth, etc) There are many profound lessons for all of us who are waiting for an answer to prayer in any topic. Was it too difficult for the Lord to grant them their prayers instantaneously ? The reason for the Lord choosing to make them wait was:-
1)     They were trained to exercise prayer & faith in those times and were transformed in the periods of waiting.
2)     The children that they were waiting for, grew up to be mighty giants of Faith who did exploits for the Lord. Great things take time to forge in the Lord’s hands.
And as Rom 8:28 says, all things work together for the good of those who love God and who are called to His purpose.

Wait on the Lord and Keep His Way ! And He shall exalt you to inherit the land - Psa 37:34 - Be patient, dear friend, in the times when you are waiting. Do not depart from the way of the Lord and He shall honor your patience with an eternal reward ! Lam 3:25-26 reminds us that the Lord is good to those who wait for him. Wait on the Lord and hope in His word ! (Psa 130:5). And He shall turn to you and hear your cry!
God Bless !

Promise of Peace

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Across all religions, across all strata of the society, the people are universally seeking for peace. They attempt to satisfy this thirst for peace, more than often, with a counterfeit substitute {E.g. Religious works, meditation & yoga, entertainment, drugs, alcohol, porn, and such} which does not and cannot satisfy the human spirit with the peace that it yearns for. To such a people does the precious promise of the Lord Jesus come - My peace I give to you. Not as the World gives ! This is one of the most precious promises in the word of God and my prayer is that all of us enjoy the various facets of this precious peace.

1. Peace With God

The first reason for our lack of peace is that we are not at peace with God. We are created for fellowship with God and till we are right with Him and till we enjoy that fellowship with Him, our inner being is designed to feel that lack of peace. The bible says : all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23). The sin in us separates us from God - because God is Holy & righteous and he cannot wink his eyes on evil. Isa 57:20-21 compares the wicked to a troubled sea which cannot rest and which brings forth dirt and mud. The Lord says: there is no peace to the wicked.

But the lord doesn't want us to remain without peace. You see, He is a compassionate God who wants to draw the entire humanity to himself. He doesn't want you to perish without peace! (2 Pet 3:9) So He made the provision for peace by sending His son Jesus Christ to us (John 3:16). He is indeed our peace and through His perfect sacrifice on the cross where He bore our sins and bore the punishment of our sins instead of us, He has broken down the wall of partition and enmity between God and Man - so that whoever repents and believes in Him shall have eternal life and peace. Pls read the blessed verses of Eph 2:13-17. If only you would believe, the Lord says: you can have the power to become the sons of God. John 1:12.

What are the steps to come into this peace ?

a) Accept the fact that your conscience is saying : that you are a sinner

b) Believe that Jesus bore your sins and died for you and by believing in his sacrifice, you'll receive the gift of eternal life and peace with God

c) Choose to live daily in communion & Obedience with God and His word to continue the Christian walk.

2. Peace Of God

Even after you are at peace with God, the Lord doesn't promise a life which is a bed of roses. As the lives of saints testify to us all over the world, and according to the words of our Lord Jesus : John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Psa 34:19 says: many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord shall deliver him from them all.

Surely we shall have tribulation while we are here in this world - but the Lord reminds us that it is not the end of the story. He says: IN HIM, you will have peace even while you are being troubled in this world. Jesus has overcome the world - and Greater is He that is in us, than he that is in this world.

Dear child of God, you may be in a season of trouble, of sickness, of dejection, of family problems, of disappointments, of persecution, of inexplicable trials, dark nights which seem to have no end. But here's the promise that our God is giving you.

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

Amplified bible says : And God's peace shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus

Make your requests known with prayer & thanksgiving. And the peace of God which surpasses all human understanding (a contra-logical, supernatural peace) will flood your hearts and keep you stable through your season of trial.

Wherever you stand with the Lord, I pray that the Lord will help you today with a peace from the throne of heaven. Firstly make peace with God. Secondly allow His peace to minister to you in the season of trial.

God bless you!
