The Upper Room Devotional for 28 November 2023, Tuesday Message by Reidunn Hanasand (Agder, Norway)

TOPIC: God’s Peace

TODAY’S READING
Philippians 4:4-9

The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:7 (NIV)

My husband and I had a good life. We had both experienced previous turbulent marriages, and we thought we would have a happy future together. But after four years, he began having trouble swallowing his food.

After several consultations with doctors, he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The prognosis was not good; his disease was terminal. We prayed for healing and then left everything to the Lord.

At worship one Sunday evening, the minister spoke about heaven and everlasting life in Christ. Suddenly light filled my heart — as if God were saying to me, “I am waiting for him. The very best is to come.” I felt a sudden and wonderful peace.

My husband died five months later. I mourned him deeply, but I also knew that he was delivered from all pain. I thank God for giving me such assurance and peace, which made it easier for me in my loss.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, thank you for surrounding us with your peace, comfort, and love, especially in times of grief. Amen.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
The Lord is always near to offer peace and comfort.

PRAYER FOCUS
