Do you have PEACE?
Psalms 4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
Peace, safety, calmness, salvation....these all go together.....
The above photo is of a beautiful sunset in front of our house....we live with many big, old trees around us, so there was a lot of tree limbs in the way of the sunset, but still the awesome colors shone through.
When I thought about all this, (the trees in the way of the sunset) it reminded me of all the problems and troubles that seem to get in the way of our everyday life....but, still, in spite of all of the troubles, God's peace and promises still shine though, like the colors of the sunset. If you are saved, you can understand about the awesome peace that we have from the salvation that we received through Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross.
If you are not saved, I invite you to receive this wonderful gift that God gives us. All it takes is to trust in Jesus and the work that He has done on the cross....give your life to Him and you will begin to see how wonderful it is to be saved and to receive this peace that only salvation can provide.
For more information on salvation, there is a great blog that explains God's plan for our lives and how we can live our life with the peace we receive through His promises and His gift of salvation. Click on this link http://settledinheaven.wordpress.com/
You can also start by reading the Bible or attending a Bible believing church. When you start reading the Bible, start with the gospels...the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John....these are great places to start.
Another great place to get information on salvation is here http://www.intouch.org/resources/content/topic/how_well_do_you_know_god read this link, but also look around this website http://www.intouch.org/ ....Pastor Charles Stanley teaches on many subjects....it's a wonderful site.
If you have any questions on this posting or salvation, I would be glad to try and answer.
