KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”.
One strong promise that our Lord Jesus has left every Christian is His peace.
What is the peace of the Lord? In Philippians 4:6, 7 the apostle Paul talks about this peace of God. He said “Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God, and the peace of God, which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”.
He tells us to be careful about nothing. Nothing means nothing at all. No worries whatsoever, but rather give over the issues to him in prayer with Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the act that consummates our faith. The peace of God then comes as a guard to protect our minds and hearts. The peace of the Lord is not just a mental state. It is a supernatural power that protects our minds and hearts: it also passes human understanding. In times that one should have been unnecessarily troubled, this peace comes into action to keep our hearts and minds.
Please remember that our minds and hearts are two aspects of our being that if affected or destroyed there is nothing to be done to that individual. If an individual’s mind go bad he or she is useful for nothing. The proper functioning of the mind is simply indispensable. The heart is the centre of life for the man,. A dead heart means a dead man. Any adverse state of your heart will render a man totally devastated.
The peace of God is that authority of God that makes nothing able to affect him. His throne is never under any threat. He is all powerful, it is God’s Omnipotence that comes to secure us. This is only made possible when we put our trust in Him. This is how the bible says it in Isaiah 43:2 “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
THE PEACE OF GOD IS THE PRESENCE OF GOD THAT STAYS WITH US ALWAYS.
In every challenge, be assured of His presence.
I am never moved or worried about anything for your presence gives me a lasting peace that makes me triumph always.
1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”.
Isaiah 54:10 ” For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee”.
Prayer Point: In the name of Jesus, because the Lord is with me, nothing will forever disturb my peace.
