Inner Tranquility

by | Uncategorized | 3 comments

While doing my morning devotions the other day, I came across the following sentence, “Even in the worst of times, we have inner tranquility because God is in control.” ~Albert Lee, Our Daily Bread, 7/20/2010

When things aren’t going the way I want or plan, I tend to internalize the anxiety and fixate on my problems. What good does holding onto my troubles serve? Is it the fear of the unknown, fear of what’s to come, or fear that I won’t be able to handle it? I serve a mighty God who is faithful, even when I’m not. When I have inner tranquility, I’m releasing control of my problems and giving them to God. Releasing my internal anxiety allows me to have that inner tranquility because God gives me what I don’t deserve, but He does it because He loves me.

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