“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”Romans 15:13 NKJV
We live in a world that is filled with darkness, confusion, and chaos. The darkness we see is the result of the sinfulness of humanity. Many today walk around depressed and discouraged. Many today long for peace and protection.
The only place we will find true peace is found in the presence of God alone. Through the cross of Calvary and the shed blood of Jesus, the Lord has made a way for us to draw near with confidence. My shortcomings as a broken person does not hinder me from drawing near to Jesus.
It is when we draw near to Jesus that we are transformed and we are changed. We have the awesome opportunity each day to draw near to the Lord and so many simply allow the busyness of life to keep them from doing this.
If we will simply make a commitment to draw near to Jesus daily we will be transformed and changed. We will experience the peace of God in all things. Let us simply desire to draw near and enjoy the Lord’s presence.
