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. “(John 14:27; KJV)

God and our eternal life, no matter what our situation is or what is happening around
us in this world.
peace is so different from what the world can offer; the world can only speak
hollow words of wishing and hoping. God can actually give us peace. Our peace
is a part of salvation, a fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22). The world maybe in
turmoil around us but we can walk in God’s peace.
will not have this peace passively by just laying back and waiting for it. As
with all of our Christian walk, we have to do our part. In Psalm 199 and verse
165 we note that we will have great peace if we love God’s law (word). In
Isaiah 26:3 we see that if we focus our minds on God and trust him, he will
keep us in his perfect peace.
like every aspect of our walk with God we need to be in his word, building our
faith and then his peace will envelope and surround us. Search the Bibles for
verses on peace, meditate them. The battle is in the mind. Renew your mind in God’s
word (Rom 12:2). Let the Prince of peace (Isa 9:6) bring you to inner stillness
and peace: “Be still and know that I am God” (Ps 46:10).
God’s word today and allow him to bring that peace and stillness to your inner
