• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

You Can Have Peace

‘Submit to God and be at peace with Him; in this way prosperity will come to you.’ Job 22:21 NIV

Today we don’t just have regular stress, we’ve got cyber stress. Emails multiply like rabbits. Turn your mobile phone off for even a couple of hours, and when you turn it back on, it has gained ten kilos from the influx of recent voice mails.

Then we have hyper stress. Go to the supermarket and see how much small talk you get from the cashier whose speed and efficiency is being tracked by computer as he or she electronically scans your groceries, calls out your total, and digitally sweeps you out the door. In a five-year study of three thousand salaried and hourly employees, 88 percent said they work ‘very hard’. Sixty-eight percent said they worked ‘very fast’. Sixty percent said they ‘still don’t get all their work done’. And 71 percent said they felt ‘used up’.

Even church leaders aren’t immune. Almost half eventually resign, and when asked why, 80 percent cited the negative effect of pastoral ministry on their family lives. So what’s the solution to our stress? Peace! And where can you find peace?

The Bible tells us, ‘Submit to God and be at peace with Him; in this way prosperity will come to you.’ Here’s how it works: when you know that God loves and accepts you unconditionally, it sets you free to do the same for yourself. As a result, you’re no longer driven by a need for acceptance, acquisition, and achievement. Yes, when you live by the principles clearly laid down in the Bible, you can have peace!
