The news media is debating whether or not a war with Iran is coming. Whenever there is talk of war, our nation, understandably, gets a little anxious. Anxiety isn’t a good thing when trying to be level headed and calm. When anxiety hits, whether from this situation or any other, faith is the best response. Our God is not an angry or warring God; he loves each of us and wants the best for us (his plan). Not a single one of us is expendable to him. Therefore, we can trust that there no one more invested in and rooting for our peace than God. Today, if you are dealing with anxiety over the news or something in your life, trust that God is rooting for your peace and invested in bringing it about for you.
“LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.” — Isaiah 26:12 NIV
