This Advent season, we commemorate the moment God took on human form, and came to earth and became the "firstborn of the dead" (Colossians 1:18). Because of Jesus, we find future freedom from our present struggles, and peace in current circumstances (Philippians 4:7). Take a moment today to ask God for peace in whatever area you may sense is disrupted by anxiety, depression, grief, confusion, or stress. God the Father sent his one and only son to earth so we could commune with Him. Let's dare to ask for the very gift He is wanting to grant to us already through His son Jesus (John 14:27).
