Are you able to enjoy the presents under the Christmas tree before you unwrap them?
with childlike faith reach out to him and accept them. And we’ll never really enjoy them until we unwrap them and make them ours. It’s time we reach out and take ownership of what God has given us. I would go so far as to tell each and everyone of you to engrave your name on the gifts God has given you. The peace that God has given you is yours and no one has the right to take it away. You don’t have to do anything for it. It’s not a payment for work you’ve done… it’s his free gift. Take ownership of the peace God has given you and no matter the situation, the environment, the things that are happening around and to you… don’t let go of it.
Holding on to God’s peace is like taking hold of his hand…
if we REALLY know that he is with us.
