The Rest We Have In God – Joyce Meyer Devotional, 25th May 2023
Text: Matthew 11:28
It’s easy to have peace when there’s nothing to be upset about. Even unbelievers have peace during easy times. But rest found in God is the gift that keeps believers peaceful during times of trouble. It is a gift from Him to His children.
Jesus said, Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you… (John 14:27 AMPC). His peace is a spiritual peace, and His rest is one that operates in the midst of a storm—not in the absence of a storm. Jesus did not come to remove all opposition from our lives, but rather to empower us to go through times of opposition peacefully.
Prayer of the Day: Father, thank You for the gift of peace and rest that comes from You. Please help me trust in the promises, found in Your Word, as I move forward in the midst of difficult situations, amen.
