I would write on this myself but I must bow to Beth Moore on this because she puts it so perfectly. To try and describe it the same would be a disservice to her.
“I will make peace flow to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flood.” – Isaiah 66:2
“God’s Word does not say we’ll have peace like a pond. If we were honest, we might admit to thinking of peaceful people as boring, like they’re a breath from death. We are apt to think, ‘I’d rather forego peace and have an exciting life!’ But when was the last time you saw white-water rapids? Few bodies of water are more exciting than rivers!
When God used the analogy of a river, He described a peace that can be retained while life twists and turns and rolls over boulders. It means to have security and tranquility while meeting many bumps and unexpected turns on life’s journey.”
By Beth Moore From “Breaking Free Day by Day – Devotional”
Yes our journey is full of surprises both good and bad, it’s a blessing to know that we can have security and tranquility while meeting those surprises. Rest in the marvelous peace that only our Lord can give. Lean wholly upon Him for all your needs.
