May the mountains bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness. Psalm 72:3
When Jesus is in the thoughts, there is peace. When surrounded by troubles, prosperity can come because of the peace that Jesus brings. The Lord is the one who stands during all our trials and offers Himself. He is the One who brings in the stillness that the disturbed soul needs.
27 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. JN 14:27
When Jesus left this earth, He left behind prosperity through peace. Calmness amid the storms of life is one of the greatest gifts Jesus has given. Even the tallest mountains in our life cannot rob us because we know who already has climbed it and stands at the top holding the victory flag. When our eyes are fixed on Him, we too can see the victory.
However, for some of us, peace is forfeited because we are trying to climb the mountain on our own. Only to find fear as our constant companion and anxious thoughts as the rope we hold. We can let go of the bondage of anxiety today and know we are in the safe arms of Jesus holding us up. We no longer have to lean into the well-known emotions of fear because there is a promise Jesus said He left us, peace. Let us hold tightly!
