Peace Above The Noise

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

It's an interesting season in America. The chatter is continuos, innocuous and LOUD. The news stations, the social media feeds, the banter, the opinion. It's annoying at one moment, and ear piercingly DEMANDING of your attention the next.

I remembered reading years ago about God's anointed word to Elijah. A large wind came and blew in Elijah's face - but God wasn't there. An earthquake came and shook Elijah's body - but God wasn't there. A fire came so close it wilted the end of his coat - but God wasn't in the fire. 

And then a whisper came. And there was the King of Kings.

Today if the noise you hear is deafening, be suspicious. It's possible God isn't in the news feed, your Facebook feed or your car commute.  

To be bold with peace today - get alone. Get quiet. Present your requests. Lay down your anxieties. And there He will be, in the whispers of your heart.
