River of His Presence
by Joanne Ellison

Today is Making Space for God Monday and I want to share with you a little bit about peace. When we make space for God, His peace becomes available to us. No matter what trial or difficulty you may be facing, God’s peace gives hope. See the below entry from my devotional, Sitting at His Feet, for encouragement that the Lord has given me about His peace.



I will give you a peace that transcends understanding. In the midst of your trials and anxiety, I will give you hope. Turn back to me and seek me with all of your heart. Your circumstances seem to be spinning out of control, but I am the eye of the storm. And I am the Prince of Peace. There is river of life with my Presence that constantly flows and is available to you. No trial or difficulty can keep you from my Presence. My peace is available to you like a river that is teeming with life—my life. It is my love that never fails that will keep you centered on me and not on the trial. If only you would turn back to me and surrender to the river of my Presence, you will find that you no longer have to tread water but can float in the river of my life.
