…Jesus offers peace to us, not war. Let us accept His generous offer, while we can, for it is far more than we deserve from a righteous and Holy God.
To submit to God’s judgments, especially when we find them painful, requires a heart that if focused on God rather than our selves.

…God’s faithfulness depends on His righteousness, not ours. Therefore, we have hope.
Even when things are at their worst for us, God is yet showing us mercy because we are alive, we still have a chance to call on His Name.

Like Jeremiah, let us choose God’s way instead of the way of the world and in the end, we too will be Undefeated, Unbowed and Undiminished.
