My Peace I Give to You

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

We must trust God in the midst of a troubling day. Your inner peace in His presence need not be shaken by what is going on around you. Though we live in this temporal world, our innermost being is rooted and grounded in eternity.

When you start to feel stressed, detach yourself from the disturbances around you. Instead of desperately striving to maintain order and control in our little world, relax and remember that our present circumstances cannot touch the peace of God!

Seek His face and He will share His mind with us, opening our eyes to SEE things from His perspective. Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid. The peace I give is sufficient for you.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27
