Daily Devotional : Peace (2 Minutes Read)

Share:

The state of Kansas had turned into a battlefield. Following the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 by the Congress of the United States, the fight broke out. This established that Kansas would become a recognized territory, but it left it up to the people living there to decide whether or not slavery would be legal in the area.

In the years that followed, pro-slavery and anti-slavery groups alike descended upon Kansas in large numbers. Because of how frequently these two groups fought, the state of Kansas got the nickname “Bloody Kansas.”

Despite the unpredictability of the times, a large number of pioneers went to Kansas in the hopes of finding a place to call home. The majority of these pioneers came to the conclusion that they could not succeed without God’s assistance.

One of the early settlers was a woman named Christine Hokanson. When she wrote, “How grateful we are to God,” she encapsulated the feelings of a great number of people. She thought that this was a “great country” to live in. She was aware, as were a great number of others, that God “aided and guided us through the trials and vicissitudes of the pioneer days.” She was aware that they were being showered with His “abundant benefits.”

Pioneers such as Hokanson testified that God was reliable, that He guided and provided for them, that He protected them and gave them peace despite the unsettling conditions they were facing.

Those early settlers were not the only ones to whom God made his promises. Because God has made His amazing promises available to all those who seek Him and put their trust in Him.

These assurances apply to you in their entirety. Call on Him . Trust and depend Him. He has the ability to calm you down in any storm. He is the essential element necessary to bring goodness to you, your family, your nation, and the entire globe.

 

Write a prayer asking God to keep those who live in war-torn nations safe.

This is your reflection for today

PEACE
