A Message From Jon

Grace and Peace to You All This Day -

I think we would all agree that we are living in tumultuous times and challenging days.

But regardless of what may be swirling around us, we can indeed have, as Isaiah declares, "peace like a river" within our souls.

My youngest son Benjamin just released a beautifully done new two-minute video on experiencing The God of Peace providing His Perfect Peace to you and me.

It is indeed an important message for the the times we're in!

And "may the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing..." (Romans 15:13)

Shalom,

Jon

And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague. And he called the name of that place Kibroth-hattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted. And the people journeyed from Kibroth-hattaavah unto Hazeroth; and abode at Hazeroth.
Numbers 11:33–35
 
Many speculate that it was actually the overindulgence of the people that brought about this plague. And they could be right . . .

They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. - Psalm 106:13–15

The Lord sent the children of Israel that which they desired, but it killed them. That’s important for me to understand. I think I know what I want, but only God sees what is truly best for me. And He promises to withhold no good thing from them who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11). Therefore, we can be the most peaceful people on the planet because, while everyone else is trying to figure out how to get ahead and how to make it happen, we get to say, “Father, You know my situation. You know what’s best for me. I trust You.”

I’m so glad we don’t have to figure out what’s best and make our demands accordingly, but rather we can simply say, “Lord, Your will be done today,” fully confident that He will do what’s best.
