Christmas Eve Peace

Children are nestled in the beds tonight waiting for Santa and lots of presents. I am going to be in mine anticipating the arrival  the Price of Peace, whether tonight or whenever it may be, we are to keep our lamps lit with the oil of His Spirit. If Christmas is a little dim this year for whatever reasons, we must rest in the fact that He has given us His presence and there is joy there. Psalm 16:11

I wrote a story about even Eve needing Jesus, we are all in need of His peace and He left it it believers in John 14:27 All the fruits of the Spirit work together for us and so do spiritual gifts. So often it is ourselves who struggle alone trying to manage and we have to remember that there are many members in the body of Christ. You can close your eyes and dream of sugar plums, and ask Him to let someone pray for you. It is likely someone is anyway, we often limit God, when He is bigger than any problem and has all the right answers.

I try not to give the trite ones, I have heard about a having faith and I did, speaking to problems and I did, calling forth financial help and I did, the just get over its, or lose weight. None of these were the right answers for me. I was counting on a lot of what I did, when He was the one to finish the good work He started. I couldn’t do it.

People often give or receive fruit baskets, love, joy and peace got together and work together, nothing works without His love. And sometimes that will take you from the presence of those who do not receive that love in order to keep you in peace. patience, goodness, kindness work and then gentleness, faithfulness, and self control.  It begins with and ends in self control. And there are many gifts, He gives them as He wills. The Spirit knows our hearts, the broken ones and the way to restore them, nothing works without His love.

So if we have hung stockings, let hang one for Him, and put in it all the cares we have and the things we hope  to give Him, as He has blessed us so much. And here are a few verses for your Christmas Eve Peace.

For you make him ( or her ) most blessed forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence. Psalm 21:6

And so I walk in the LORD’s presence as I live here on earth! Psalm 116:9

 

And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. Exodus 33:14

You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. John 15:9

 

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled; do not be afraid. John 14:27.

There are peace post all December, and I want His peace for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and I want it for believers who have been under a lot oppression this year, even as we have done  our best to rest in Him, I pray it floods our New Year as well, in Jesus name.
