I would like to share today’s words of Jesus by Sarah Young:
MY PEACE is the treasure of treasures: the pearl of great price. It is an exquisitely costly gift, both for the Giver and the receiver. I purchased this Peace for you with My blood. You receive this gift by trusting Me in the midst of life’s storms. If you have the world’s peace ー everything going your way ー you don’t seek My unfathomable Peace. Thank Me when things do not go your way, because spiritual blessings come wrapped in trials Adverse circumstances are normal in a fallen world. Expect them each day. Rejoice in the face of hardship, for I have overcome the world.
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. ー Matthew 13:46
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds. ー James 1:2
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” ー John 16:33
