Fret-Free Friday: God of Peace

Fret-Free Friday: God of Peace
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

The great evangelical preacher Octavius Winslow (1808-1878) shared this insightful wisdom:

Let the precious truth divest your mind of all needless, anxious care for the present or the future. Exercising simple faith in God, "do not be anxious about anything" [Philippians 4:6]. Learn to be content with your present lot, with God's dealings with, and His disposal of, you. You are just where His providence has, in its inscrutable but all-wise and righteous decision, placed you. It may be a position painful, irksome, trying, but it is right...Only aim to glorify Him in it.

Wherever you are placed, God has a work for you to do, a purpose through you to be accomplished, in which He blends your happiness with His glory...

Live a life of daily dependence upon God. It saves from many a desponding feeling, from many a corroding care, from many an anxious thought, from many a sleepless night.

Father, you are the God of peace—
peace transcending,
peace defending,
peace befriending,
peace descending,
peace unending.
-Roy Lessin
