Q&A with Dr. Graham
Q Dr. Graham, I know God promises peace, but I just don’t feel it. How can I experience supernatural peace every day?
A In John 14:27, Jesus said, “My peace I give to you.” So how does He give it? He gives the answer in Matthew 7:7 where He says, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” So, when you find yourself strangled by worry, pray and practice His presence. Pray and unleash His grace and mercy to attack and defeat anxiety. Pray and watch God work.
Q Apart from praying and meditating on God’s Word, are there other ways to experience greater peace in my life?
A Often when you are stressed or feeling anxious and pressured, one of the best things you can do is just get away. Even if it’s in your own backyard, find a place where you can look at the trees, hear the birds, notice the flowers, soak in God’s creation, and find peace in that. Marvel and find peace in what God has made – an ocean, a mountain, a rose, the face of a small child… and take a deep breath!
