Continutaion on "Peace"......

Repentance and Confession of Sin Leads to Peace of Mind.......

Maybe you feel the heavy load of past sins weighing you down, and you feel you have more than you can bear. The Lord offers the remedy in Acts 3:19. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted our, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord." 1 John 1:9 also says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." As a result, you will have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).
In the 23rd Psalm David expresses his confidence in God. He gives a very descriptive message of the peace he experienced. This peace and fellowship is for all those who have a vital companionship with the Shepherd.
The 23rd Psalm...........
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for hou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house fo the LORD forever."
Do you know this Shepherd? Do you believe and trust Him? Isaiah tells us that this tender, merciful Shepherd "shall gather the lambs in His arm, and carry them in his bosom"(Isaiah 40:11). Are you ready to be lifted out of confusion into the serenity ofGod's everlasting arms? Are you ready to commit to Him your past sins, your present temptations, your fears of the furure, and yield yourself completely to Him? The Lord gives you the choice. It is yours to make.

Abiding Peace.........

When you come to Jesus Christ with your whole heart, your search for peace of mind will be over. He will give peace, and a calm that comes only from trusting HIm. You will be able to say with the poet:

I know a peace, where there is no peace,
A cal, where wild winds blow,
A secret place where face to face
With the master I may go.
----------Ralph spalding Cushman

You will have peace of mind in a troubled world! Open the door of tour heart to Christ--just now--and someday He'll open the door of heaven for you, where perfect peace will reign and never end...........

I hope this has touched yourheart, may you find "Him"........
