Perfect Peace in a Perfect Storm

Perfect Peace in a Perfect Storm

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)

Have you ever heard of a perfect storm? That’s when multiple weather elements combine, like hurricane force winds, plus a cold front, plus a downpour of rain. It creates disaster. We’ve been talking about worry, stress, and anxiety. We live in a fallen world, so there’s a real sense that these things are inevitable. Most of us have learned to handle one challenge at a time.

But what happens when it’s a pandemic, plus a lockdown? A layoff plus, a recession? Marriage issues, plus sheltering in place? Political turmoil, plus racial division? What if these happen all at the same time? 2020, plus 2021? One wave after another pounds us and we wonder: “Will we survive?”

There’s good news for us as we combat the “perfect storm.” God promises us perfect peace! “You will keep the mind that is dependent on you in perfect peace, for it is trusting in you.” (Isaiah 26:3) The peace of God is the final element of our sermon series, “Worried Sick.”

Praise in the midst of the storm. Poise in the midst of the storm. Prayer in the midst of the storm. These three elements are OUR contributions. And when we do these things GOD contributes peace – perfect peace in a perfect storm.

See you Sunday!
