Perfect peace and being sent

Have you noticed people are more stressed out these days? I admit to it myself. The world is a crazy place these days, between the economy, good and bad changes in government and just plain making "ends meet" in everyday life. Boy, the media would certainly have us feel discouraged and without much hope.
That is why I am so glad I have relationship with Jesus. He is our peace.
We where chosen for "such a time as this" just like Queen Esther.
So Christian,
Be encouraged.

God is still in control. Nobody has taken Him off the throne.
He is always good!
As the eloquent prophet of God Isaiah put it....

Isa 26:3
You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
Pro 3:5 ,6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Our God is an awesome God- Check out Isaiahs' vision and be blessed!

Isaiah 6

Isaiah Called to Be a Prophet
1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2 Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one cried to another and said:

“ Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”
4 And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 So I said:

“ Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The LORD of hosts.”

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said:

“ Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin purged.”

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:

“ Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
