When the outside world comes against you, how are you holding up? When the news of impending doom is all around you, where do you go first? Do you stick close to the TV, or call your friends and family? Or do you go to the word?
God says John 16:33 – these things I have spoken unto you, that in me he might have peace.
In the world he shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.
When you lean on Him and Him only, you have peace even when havoc is all around you. You need to listen to what He says and put your trust in the inner peace only He can give. We have to remember, He knows the end from the beginning. If you are in danger, He will warn you. How do you hear his voice? By spending time with Him, praying, talking, communing.
John 10:27 – my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
