The prophet Jeremiah exclaimed, “‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace” (Jer. 6:14). And still in our day, humanity continues to look for true peace. As in the days of Jeremiah, our divisive and fragmented world fails to give peace—either among nations or between individuals, and even less so in people’s hearts and minds.
But true peace and contentment, even in the midst of life’s anxieties and trials, is possible. It comes from the Prince of Peace Himself—Jesus Christ. He is our peace! This month in Today in the Word we’ll explore some practical ways from Scripture to overcome worry and anxiety: gratitude, prayer, receiving consolation from the Holy Spirit, seeking Christ’s presence, keeping eternity in mind, and more. We’ll see that God is our hope and consolation in the face of anxiety.
Thank you for being a part of our study of Scripture with Today in the Word! We pray this month’s study will help you always rely on Christ and look to Him as we journey together through our angst-filled times. May you receive strength from our merciful God for every step along this road.
