“So Jesus said again, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, I am the Door for the sheep [leading to life]. All who came before Me [as false messiahs and self-appointed leaders] are thieves and robbers, but the [true] sheep did not hear them. I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever], and will go in and out [freely], and find pasture (spiritual security). The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]. I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His [own] life for the sheep”. (John 10:7-11 AMP).
“Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]”. (Philippians 4:6-8 AMP).
“Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]”.(John 14:27 AMP).
“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation]. Trust [confidently] in the Lord forever [He is your fortress, your shield, your banner], For the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]”. (Isaiah 26:3-4 AMP).
How is your Peace?
The Peace of God is for our HEARTS and MINDS.
PEACE: quietness with rest, calm and tranquility.
And the PEACE of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your HEARTS and MINDS through Christ Jesus.
John 14:27 Jesus said:
PEACE I leave with you, my PEACE I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your HEART be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
+The peace of God in our lives keeps us from WORRIES, and keeps us from being TROUBLED, and also keeps us from ALL FEARS.
+Do not allow yourself to be agitated and disturbed.
+Do not allow yourself to be fearful, and unsettled in any way.
+Settle and rest yourself in God’s PERFECT PEACE.
…He is our Prince of PEACE, and our ETERNAL PEACE.
