As you come into the awareness of God’s presence with you today, may you find peace for your soul.
His peace passes all of your understanding, as it guards your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. Let this truth resonate in your mind, and flow down into your heart. Let the Person of Truth (Jesus of Nazareth) reassure you of His connection with you, even when you are struggling to make sense of your day.
A branch abides in the vine, even when it wonders if the vine is still there. The vine is responsible to uphold and nourish every branch within itself so that each branch can bear much fruit.
The vine depends on the vinedresser (the Father Himself) to lift up every branch that is burdened by the cares of this world. The vine (Jesus of Nazareth) is fully connected to the vinedresser (the Father), and they are both fully committed to nurture every branch that has been carefully grafted into the vine, by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ.
God establishes His peace within you, and for you, because His peace is found in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself is your peace, and His peace never leaves you, even when circumstances change your focus.
His peace is already established within you, just as the life of the vine is already established within each the branch.
Therefore, let Him show you how His peace can calm your mind and soothe your troubled heart. Lean into Him, rest in His presence, and let Him soothe your soul with His comfort.
Lord Jesus, may you reveal your peace within every branch (of every believer), as they choose to simply rest and remain in you. Amen.
