Peace at all times

2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

It is easy to be at peace when we are on holidays. Sitting on a boat on the ocean, with the sun shining on your face and the wind blowing through your hair.

But what about when it’s winter time? When we have to work hard for the bread we eat. When we have enemies of sickness and worry knocking on our door, can we still experience peace?

The answer is YES. Real peace is found in the midst of turmoil. Real peace is like the dove sitting in her nest in a tree over a raging waterfall. This kind of peace cannot be conjured up, constructed by ourselves. It is a peace that can only be received. And we can receive it NOW. At all times, and in every way.

The Lord be WITH you!
