KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:27 KJV “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”.
The word peace is translated from the Greek word “eirene”. This word means: to be at one’ or s state of tranquility. As I share the gospel with people, I do ask them whether they have peace of mind. Most of them declare they don’t have peace of mind. The Lord Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6), and how can they have peace without Him? Our opening scripture says He gives us His peace, not as the world gives. What is the peace of the world.?
The peace of the world comes from the happenings that gives one a level of satisfaction and some excitement. It also comes from conditions that we have control over. The question to ask ourselves is, how many conditions around us that we have control over? You may have so much money yet you cannot control the fearful situations in the world. The horrible diseases that assail most men have no answer. Our world has the potential to be so dangerous that, one mad leader can destroy a big portion of our world by pressing a button to release a nuclear war head. Men seek amusements in all sorts of things yet deep down in their hearts they are filled with fears, uncertainties of all kinds. There are some who have very horrible night time sessions with all kinds of strange beings and powers. In the day time they appear normal yet the night is a moment they wished never existed. People have various levels of turmoil. Each one’s case is unique. Dear reader, do not allow your pride to keep you from seeking help. Come to Jesus today. He has successfully given peace to millions of people who lived in turmoil.
JESUS IS real. I can boast in Him of having true peace. I would not say every condition is perfect with me, yet I have a real Lord who is lord over every issue in my life. He is my shepherd and therefore I have no want. My peace is intact. It is the kind Jesus alone can give. The peace Jesus gives, is a supernatural power that preserves your heart and mind irrespective of what may be going on. You receive it as a response of your faith in Him. He will give you the peace that passes all understanding (Phil 4:6) He has all power to set you free from every power, master, disease, situation or person if the need be. Jesus is very real. His Lordship over your life means peace of mind in a world filled with turmoil. The only condition is to throw away every pride and believe in Him. Confess Him as your Lord and Savior. Welcome Him into your heart and life and know that He has come into your heart. You would instantly have a kind of peace that nothing can explain. You can say the following prayer.
Dear heavenly father, I have come to my wits end. I bow my knees to the Lordship of Jesus, the Christ . Come into my life today and be my Lord and Savior.
