Finding Peace in Troubled Times

In a world where chaos and uncertainty often take over, finding peace can seem like a rough task. As leaders, we are not immune to the trials and tribulations of life. However, our faith offers us a unique perspective and tools to navigate these challenging times. Boy has my faith been tested many times. 

Faith as the Foundation of Peace, at the heart of Christian teaching is the belief that peace comes from faith in God. This peace is not the absence of trouble, but a profound assurance that, in the midst of turmoil, God is with us. Philippians 4:7 speaks of “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,” reminding us that this peace is not something the world can give or take away.

There really is power in prayer. Prayer is a vital tool in seeking peace. It allows us to lay our burdens before God and to be reminded of His everlasting presence and love. In prayer, we find a safe space to express our fears, hopes, and desires, and to listen for God’s guidance.

The Bible is filled with verses that encourage and guide us towards peace. Psalms 23, for instance, portrays God as our shepherd, leading us to “green pastures” and “still waters.” This scripture brings comfort and reminds us that God is a source of rest and peace.

The church community plays a crucial role in supporting its members. Sharing our struggles and victories with fellow believers can be incredibly uplifting and can provide a sense of belonging and peace.

Often, anxiety stems from worries about the future or regrets about the past. The teachings of Jesus encourage us to live in the present. Matthew 6:34 advises us not to worry about tomorrow, for “each day has enough trouble of its own.” This focus on the present moment can be a powerful practice in maintaining peace.

Selah, J.
