You're Wired for Peace: Connect to the Correct Source

The other day, I plugged my cell phone into the charger; however, nothing happened. I assumed I had not plugged it into the outlet all the way. Again, attempting to charge my phone, I plugged it in at another location and gave it no further thought. By that night, certainly I would have power. Checking once more, nothing. Absolutely nothing. Finally, it dawned on me that I needed to take a closer look. The cord that I was attempting to use was not the correct one to charge the phone. It fit into the port but could not connect appropriately so that the current could run from the cord into the phone. I switched the cable out for the correct one, and my phone charged! Why? Because the device was plugged into the right source.

Do you know that you are wired to be a carrier of peace? Not only of peace, but you are wired to bring heaven to earth. To do this, you must make sure that you are plugged into the right source. Like my phone, the connection can look right; however, if it is the wrong source, we will not be charged with the power of being sons and daughters of God. When we are running with anxiety, peace cannot flow through us to the world around us.

Psalm 31:14 talks about trusting in God and making the statement, "You are my God!" You can only be wired for peace when you are plugged into the right source. From that place, you can trust God will fill you. As you are filled, you become carriers of peace. From this place, you also recognize that our future is in God's hands. When you know that your future is in God's hands, the peace increases.

You can have peace today because you know that God has placed you in a unique situation.
