It Is Well With My Soul
"The Lord gives His people strength. The Lord Blesses them with peace."
When it comes to Spiritual growth and victory over all things, we can be assured that our Lord has provided His peace for our lives. In all of life's experiences, whether good or in times of disappointment, the Lord will give us His peace when we go to Him.
Jesus is never too busy and He never takes a day off. More importantly, His Word never fails us. He is there to pour His bucket of peace over His children.
When Horacio Spafford sent his family ahead of him to Europe, the ship carrying his wife and four daughters sunk at sea. His wife survived but his four daughters died. In Spafford's grief and tears, the Lord led him to write the words to the classic hymn, "It is well with my soul.”
These words are still a source of comfort for us today. The beginning of the song says, "When peace like a river attended my way, when sorrow like sea billows roll, whatever my lot Thou hast taught me to say, it is well, it is well with my soul."
Every day we hear or see tragedy. Grief and sorrow are very real. Let His peace flow over you like a river and know that we sit in the palm of God's hands.
So, Lord strengthen our trust in You today, so that we can rest in Your peace during times of sorrow and grief and also in the good times.
We worship You Jesus and we bless You for all that you have done and will do in our lives. We look to You for our strength and we thank you that the Scriptures give us abundant comfort.
We are a grateful people knowing that your peace, which the world cannot understand, does flood our souls. For this we are grateful and say thank you Jesus. Amen.
