Got a lot on your mind? Try making peace with God

Standard

http://bible.com/12/php.4.6-7.asv

In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

Look about you.  Everything you see speaks of a Great Designer.  We were meant to live lives of purpose and joy.  
God says He loves you with an everlasting love.   He says don’t let your heart be troubled.   Believe in Him.  Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you.

We were meant to always be one with God and enjoy peace with Him and each other but mankind chose unbelief and distrust and disobedience.  God did not abandon us.  We abandoned Him.  The prophet Isaiah says we are all like sheep that go astray.  We turn each  one to his own way but the Lord laid on Him, Jesus,  the iniquity of us all.  He Himself bore our sin in His own body on the tree that we being dead to sin might live.

God’s plan, even before creation,  has always been to restore relationship with Him and give us back the life we lost.  God wants to take the broken pieces of our lives and make us whole.  He says if you choose to accept His forgiveness through the price Jesus paid on  the cross for your debt He will give you a makeover.   If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation.  Old things are passed away.   Everything  has become new.  And that’s just a start.  He  baptizes you in His Holy Spirit placing His genetic code in you. He adopts you and invites you to call Him daddy.  He says come to me with all your problems and I will give you rest.
