I am so excited to share with you my next writing project: A 52 Day devotional/journal from the promises of God. Last summer while reading 2 Peter 1:4, For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust—I thought to myself, “the promises of God—what are the promises of God?” So, I started journaling a promise a day. After a few weeks into it, I thought it would be good to share these with you. And here we are. Please pray for me as I finish writing, that God would continue to impress on my heart His words to encourage us for each day. I thought I would share one of the days with you—The Promise of Unshakable Peace
For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake,
But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you,
And My covenant of peace will not be shaken,”
Says the Lord who has compassion on you.
You may feel the weight of discouragement, wrongdoing, or disappointment as you face your day, but you have a God who cares. His love for you is steadfast and firm. He promises, as you trust your day to Him, that He will be at your right hand and you will not be shaken (Psalm 16:8). Even if your surroundings seem to be crumbling, you can stand secure in His love for you. And, if you feel distant from Him—He has not moved. He is awaiting your companionship with open arms and an unwavering love. When you received Jesus in your life, there was an instant promise—His love and peace will never be taken from you. . . no matter what else may be. He is ever faithful to show you that His compassion and presence is your greatest need. He is your strong tower, a shelter over you—beautiful, mighty, and everlasting King. He extends a peace to you that this world has nothing on. His peace is a gift that was left to you when Jesus ascended to heaven, so don’t let your heart be troubled, nor allow fear to grip your movement. He has entrusted much to you. He has given you the bounty of this day—walk in it with unmovable strength and confidence because He is your unyielding foundation. He holds your life safely in His hands and will not allow your feet to slip (Psalm 66:9). Raise up your eyes to the mountains, your help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He does not slumber or sleep. He will keep you, protect you, and guard your going out and your coming in (Psalm 121). Allow Him to lead you beside quiet waters, calm your anxiety, grant you peace beyond your striving, and restore your soul. Live under the protective coving of His promise that His lovingkindness will not be removed from you. And, it is His Peace He left you; His peace He gives to you. So, don’t not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful (John 14:27). He loves you deeper than the deepest ocean, wider than the widest canyon and higher than the highest mountain.
