Jesus said:"All who are weary, come to Me and I will give you rest for your soul." Why is it that many believers are so anxious, uncertain? It is because they have not truly come to Jesus. They do not trust Him. It is because they do not obey Him.
We can only experience the peace and the comfort that Jesus gives if we obey Him, if we follow Him, if we abandon our SELF, deny our self and go after Him. We can only be in His peace if we truly trust Him and seek His kingdom.
Jesus said:"Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you." People are worried about food and clothing, safety, security. They are worried about everything in life but they are not concerned about the kingdom of God. The are not concerned about being pleasing to the Master, Jesus Christ and that is why they do not enjoy His peace and His comfort, His consolation.
What is our attachment in life? What do we keep ourselves busy with? What is our first thought in the morning, our last thought at at night? What are we keeping ourselves busy with. Are we watching the TV? Are we busy with ourselves? Or are we seeking the kingdom of God? Is our mind focused on Jesus Christ?
If we are not seeking His kingdom, if our mind is not on Christ then we cannot be in His peace, we cannot be in His confidence and that is why people are anxious. It is because they are attached to other things and not to Jesus Christ. Their hope is in themselves and they are attached to the things of the world. They are not attached to Jesus Christ. That is why they have no peace, nor rest for their souls.
Are you attached to Jesus Christ? Are you IN Him? Are you living in His PEACE?
May Jesus bless you.
