The goodness of Christ will sooth your heart in your time of affliction or distress, relieve your spirit, and deliver healing to your heart. The mercy of our Lord will give you a feeling of well-being, and contentment. God’s grace will bring you solace in your time of grief.
Matthew 11:28-30 If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest. Take the yoke I give to you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you will find rest. My yoke is easy to bear, and my burden is light.
The grace of God in Christ Jesus invites you come to Him to find rest for your soul. When you come to Christ with all our guilt and burdens, believe and know that He has the power to comfort you. If you are broken and undone, lacking peace and comfort, all you have to do is to come to Jesus Christ. He will accept you with all your sin and imperfections. In Christ, and Christ alone, you will find rest for your soul.
Many things in this world promise to bring you comfort but none can deliver like the grace of God. Powerful is your Redeemer’s mercy. Why would you seek peace, comfort and rest from any other source? He will deliver you from all your pain, guilt, fear, and sorrow.
The peace of God is not of this world. In grace we are offered a peace that the world cannot pursue, nor can it obtain. The things that we sometimes long for, such as personal pleasure, fame, and wealth are many times not the pursuits of our Lord. We may find greatness and notoriety in this life, but only within the will of God will we have peace within our success. Success outside God’s will leave us with worry, anxiety, and remorse. What this world has to offer cannot satisfy our soul, our spirit, and it cannot give us the peace that our soul needs.
Many times those in the world can praise you with hollow, empty and flattering words that are not sincere. The world may not be sincere but Jesus is. There are systems of philosophy and false religions. They will profess to give you peace, but they cannot take away your sin; and they cannot reconcile your soul to God.
Only the peace that is given by an intimate relationship with Christ can give you the peace that meets all the needs of your soul. He will heal all your open wounds, broken dreams and calm your troubled heart. His peace is not affected by any external changes, and His peace will abide with you in this world and in the world to come. How precious it is in a world of anxiety and care, to have the peace that surpasses all human understanding. Take comfort in the knowledge that the world can neither give nor take the divine peace away!
God will take that which is undone in your life and mend it together. The grace of God in Christ Jesus will give you a peace that will heal your pain, comfort your sorrow and deliver you from your trials. The peace of Christ Jesus will never leave you; His peace will always be with you. Surrender all your anger, fears, and temptations to the Lord – and when you choose the wrong path and lost sight of your purpose in the journey of life, allow Him to carry you through the rumbling tides and roaring waves, and bring you safely to shore.
