I won’t beat around the bush; the last few months have been pretty depressing. Terrorist attacks in Turkey, mass shootings in Orlanda, Zika virus spreading across continents, Britain exit the EU, young girls being trafficked around the world and I’m sure there’s many more stories and situations that we could highlight. In fact I wish we could highlight them all as it shows just how broken this world is.
As a Christian, I believe that God has the victory, but how do we remember this when the evil in our world seems so overwhelming? I’m reminded of when the disciples were in the boat with Jesus in the midst of a storm. They were worried and panicked about how it would all play out but Jesus was laying down in the boat because He had it all under control. Here are 5 bible verses that can help us find peace in the storm and remind us that everything will be okay, all we need to remember is that Jesus is in our boat.
1. John 16:33
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
2. Philippians 4:6-7
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
3. Psalm 29:11
The Lord gives strength to his people: the Lord blesses his people with peace.
4. Isaiah 54:10
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
5. Matthew 11:28-30
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
