It’s not only when things in life go wrong do we quickly forget who we are, but also when things are going exceptionally well. We can just as easily lose confidence in our selves as quickly as we can become full of arrogance. Both extremes have the tendency to instigate storms. When our spirit is low the enemy attacks. When our spirit is high the enemy attacks. The balance (peace) will come when we begin to trust God’s presence in our life and give him praise regardless of our circumstance as Paul so eloquently encouraged in Philippians 3 and 4. We don’t have to blame our selves for the low times, nor give an explanation for our high times. In either situation we have only to give God the glory, remember that we are heirs to the promise of salvation and redemption as believers in Christ, and strive towards the peace of God, which passes all understanding. If we say we believe, only our next step really matters.
