Luke 19:38 Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!

Jesus was riding on the back of a donkey, heading for Jerusalem. Excitement was flowing through their journey, so much so that the disciples started loudly praising God. They praised God for the presence of Jesus. They praised God for His presence. They praised God because they had to come to feel His peaceful presence within their lives, but not everyone felt this way. As they entered Jerusalem, Jesus began to weep, even a moment after He was filled with so much joy. As He gazed upon the Jerusalem, He spoke these words, “If you, even you, had known on this day that would bring you peace-but now it is hidden from your eyes.” So many were praising, and yet so many would not embrace His peace within their lives. Honestly, have things changed? The answer would be unequivocally NO. Even within the house of God, there are many who are present, but not peaceful. They come and haphazardly worship because that’s what they feel is required, but they never become filled with the peace of God. For if they had, their worship would be different. The peace of God surpasses all understanding, but we don’t need to understand it. We just need to allow it to flow through our lives.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, fill me with a peace that surpasses my understanding. Fill me with a peace that helps me walk through anything this life provides.
