The Peace That only God Can Give

Philippians 4: 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I have seen so many christians that say they have faith, read the bible and  trust in God.  Yet when something happens  in their life, they get all bent out of proportion, and don’t know what to do. As a christian how do you react when tests and trials face you?This is the time when we are going through a difficult trial in our life and people are closely watching our outward expressions.    These test of trials are for us to produce staying power, faith and trust in God.  I never realized how many people watched what I do as a christian when I am faced with a trial.  I suppose most people go through the seven stages of trauma and finally accept it or get bitter.  My whole life has been full of trials, tests and grief. I think some times that I have become immune to them.  I have gotten to the point where after the shock and grief  I accept them and turn them over to  my almighty God. Then I start searching the Word  and  I ask God what is it that you want  to teach me this time around. I find that by doing this God is changing and molding me as an individual to become a better person.  All the things I don’t like about myself and have prayed to God to remove them my life, He removes them through some of these trials.  They’re not easy not easy, because he places me through the fire.  God breaks, humbles and molds my heart.  As I press on to get to the other side, He speaks to me through his Word, prayer and other people.  I know that he is there carrying me through it all. I never understood why I felt so much peace during these times. I thought that I was not normal, had no feelings or unremorseful.  I can’t understand it all, but I’m so fortunate and you’re so fortunate to have God in our lives. For every situation we are going through, “Let go and Let Go!”
