There are too many obstacles and hardships in this life to make it without Jesus.... Millionaires are losing their minds, committing suicide, etc. so money can't be the answer ..... But Isaiah 26:3 says "You keep him in PERFECT PEACE whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." .... What's money if you don't have peace?? .... What's to having a mansion with 5 floors if everyday you're contemplating jumping off of the balcony? .... What's to owning a Mercedes Benz if you're constantly bombarded with thoughts of driving full speed into on-coming traffic? ..... We often think that possession of materials will bring us peace, but it can't... It's not material that we need seek; PEACE is what we need! And Jesus Christ is the "PRINCE Of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6)! ..... Seek more of HIM... With Jesus in your life, you can have more joy eating Top Ramen, than someone eating steak and lobster who does not know Him.... "Godliness with contentment is great gain" (1 Timothy 6:6).
Jesus said in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you." The peace Jesus gives is not a temporal peace, based on circumstances.... He gives us peace which surpasses ALL understanding (Philippians 4:7), that means even YOU won't understand it! You could be going through your worst trial, but because His peace is keeping your mind, you will not be shaken.. Friends will be wondering why haven't you lost your mind, but it's because you know a God who can do the impossible (Luke 1:37)... This is the way life was intended to be!
1 John 5:12 says "Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life." ..... Are you ready to begin living? Allow Jesus to be the center of your joy.... God bless.
