God offers us many gifts, and we will be looking at these over the next several weeks. This week we are looking at the gift of Peace and Quiet. In today’s world of chaos, natural disasters and world violence, it isn’t hard to be anxious and unsettled, even afraid, of all that we see and hear in the news or experience in our own lives. So how do we find peace in our lives in the face of all of this trouble? God offers us peace and words of comfort that we can use to bring us courage and calm in the midst of chaos, and the sure knowledge that we are God’s chosen people and He will care for us, no matter what happens.
Based on 1 Kings 19:11-13 and Ephesians 2:8-18.
