Joy and Strength 09/13

The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Phil. iv. 7.

I TAKE Thee for my Peace, O Lord,
My heart to keep and fill;
Thine own great calm, amid earth’s storms,
Shall keep me always still.
And as Thy Kingdom doth increase.
So shall Thine ever-deepening peace.
Annie W. Marston

REMEMBER this, busy and burdened disciple; man or woman tried by uncertain health; immersed in secular duties; forced a life of almost ceaseless publicity. Here is written an assurance, a guarantee, that not at holy times and welcome intervals only, not only the dust of death, but in the dust of life, there is prepared for you the peace of God, le to keep your hearts and thoughts in Christ Jesus. It is found in Him, it is cultivated by intercourse with Him. It is “the secret His presence.” Amidst the circumstances of your life, which are the expression of His will, He can maintain it. He can keep you in it. Nay, it is not passive; it “shall keep” you, alive, and loving, and practical, and ready at His call.
Handley C. G. Moule

Verse of the Day

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. — James 3:17-18 (NKJV)
