‘The LORD your God… He will quiet you with His love.’
- In the midst of all the noise going on around us, we can know His peace. - Distress, fear and anxiety can rob us of our joy and peace. - The Lord wants to step into your situation and silence the storm. - His love can be a living reality and as a result we can know rest in our hearts.
Prayer: Lord, I invite You into my heart and life. I give you right of way, to come and still the storms that rage within my heart. May I be overwhelmed by Your love and not by what is going on around me. Amen.

(But do not yield to them). Let them return to you - not you to (the people).'

We must stop limiting God and return to a pace of faith in God.
