Some people struggle with the concept of peace especially if there is trouble in the home, at the work place, in your relationship or even internally. What is peace? Let’s start with what peace isn’t. Peace is not the absence of trouble.
Peace is a state of mind that comes from a revelation of who God is and what His promises are towards you. Let’s say you are the son or daughter of the State Governor and you are driving on the road and a police officer or task force agent stops you and is trying to arrest you and starts threatening you with jail time and what have you, even though the situation is uncomfortable,you will not panic like someone who has nobody, there is a sense of assurance that you will get out of it.
You won’t come out of your car crying and begging to be released. You will probably be on the phone making calls to end the situation. Same thing here. Your Father is the king of kings. Situations will come to test your IDENTITY. But If you know ‘whose’ you are,your response will be different. A spouse is giving you trouble, you will be making calls to your Father in prayer. You may feel bad but you will not lose your peace.Your boss or colleagues are working against you,Your Father will take care of it. CALL HIM.
No money in your account, you will trust God to provide.Finally,let’s look at this scripture -“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 God’s peace isn’t like the peace of this world which is transient and dependent on everything being as it should be. God’s peace goes beyond the physical and is steadfast through the storms of life. Even when things don’t make sense,His peace wraps around us like a warm hug. Jesus said ‘Do not LET your heart be troubled,nor let it be afraid’Worry and fear is therefore a choice. Choose to receive God’s peace today. Instead of worry, choose to take it to God in prayer. Receive the strength and courage of God to go through anything you are facing today.
IT WILL END IN PRAISE!!!
