1 Peter 5:6-11

I can trade my problems for the peace of God.

The God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. – 1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)

The other night at our evening prayer time, Sister Alegría and I were interrupted by a beetle that was attracted to our hand-held light. The inch-long creature kept landing on our necks, arms, and legs with an unpleasant tickle. We brushed the beetle away, but it was nearly impossible to concentrate on our scripture readings. The beetle was not a biting insect, so I didn’t want to kill it — though I was tempted. I caught it in my hand and released it outside. Finally, we could pray in peace.

This experience is a helpful metaphor for dealing with problems that arise in my life. Sin, temptation, worries, and even trivial things can distract me from God during worship and prayer, as well as keep me from living a faithful life. When that happens, instead of just ignoring my problems or trying to brush them away, I would do well to face the challenges straight on and turn them over to God.

God has the power to resolve them and guide me in what steps I may need to take. The process may be difficult, but it is worthwhile. When we give God not only our praise but also our problems, our faith will be strengthened and we can regain a sense of peace.

All-powerful God, help us to let go of our problems and distractions so we can focus on you and what’s really important in life. Amen.

To resist temptation

PRAYER OF SALVATIONA MINUTE PRAYER COULD SAVE YOU “O Lord God, I believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God. I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead. I believe He’s alive today. I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life from this day. Through Him and in His Name, I have eternal life; I’m born again. Thank you Lord for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!” Congratulations! You are Born Again... Get closer to God by reading your BIBLE and worshiping with other believers.
