Every Day

in His

Presence

Dr. Charles Stanley

Your Prince of Peace

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth

peace to those on whom his favor rests

Luke 2:14

Does your heart yearn for peace? The hectic nature of Christmas

sometimes inspires more weariness, conflict, loneliness, and feelings

of unworthiness than the joy promised by the angels at Christ's

birth. The tumult within your spirit and unfulfilled dreams may

leave you longing for rest. But be assured, your Savior desires to

give you genuine tranquility in the midst of all the pressures of the

season (John 14:27).

Friend, you will feel exhausted and overwhelmed when you

believe everything depends on you. But Christ calms your soul by

taking full responsibility for your needs as you obey Him. You'll

find peace when you trust Him, because you're assured that the

One who is best able to give you the victory in every situation will

never leave or forsake you.

So when you feel overwhelmed, stop and spend time with your

Prince or Peace. Then rejoice in the fact that He's got everything

under control (Psalm 103:19). Truly, He is always ready, willing,

and able to help you (Psalm 46:1)

Jesus, thank you for being my Prince of Peace and giving

me true rest. You are the joy of my soul forever, amen.
