Do you want peace? What does peace mean to you? Is it the absence of trouble , bills ,or anything that disturbs your flow and peace of mind. Is that really peace? When Jesus told us in John 16:33; that in the world you will have tribulation ,but we should be of good cheer for He has overcome the world .
This simple means,that when all hell is breaking loose ,we can be at peace .
How ? It’s simple ,do as He said, in Isaiah 26:3;”You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You”.
Then He tells us in Philippians 4: 6-9; “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you”.
Before ,Jesus depart from Earth He said , “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”; (John 14:27).
You have the Peace of God in your heart and in your mind. What is peace ?
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.
