God provided words of peace when fear threatened to overcome the shepherds.
"And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not…'"
Life is scary. The best of days can bring surprising angelic announcements, and the worst of days can bring shocking, horrific revelations.
We can only have peace when we know the Prince of Peace. He promises His gift to us.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are
honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if
there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
May God's peace comfort you today.
