“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid." John 14:27 TLB
You might be wondering why the world has not been able to broker long-lasting peace in places of crises. Take for an example the crisis in the Middle East between Israel and Palestine. Despite the diplomatic interventions and the cease fire agreements mediated by so-called world powers, with the slightest of provocation, they become restive again.
The world can never give peace. There is no government in the world that can bring peace to the world. But for us who are in Christ, God has given us a gift - peace of mind and heart. Scriptures say in Philippians 4:7, "and the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." This is why we are not troubled or afraid. The peace of God is always there to keep our hearts and minds.
The peace that the Lord has given to us as a gift is not fragile like that of the world. It is everlasting. Nothing can take it away from us. The Holy Ghost multiplies it for us as we get to know God the more (2 Peter 1:2). So there is no way it will ever cease. We have got the peace of God and it is for everlasting. Glory to God!
Keep winning daily.
Thank You Lord for the gift of Your peace that You have given me. Your peace is everlasting. It keeps my heart and mind. With Your everlasting peace I am neither afraid nor troubled, in Jesus' Name. Amen
