“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NKJV
No matter what we face in this world we can still find the peace of Christ. It's a peace born from within, not based on outward circumstances. There is no where else you can find this peace apart from Christ.
We often times struggle to maintain this sense of peace within us...to walk in peace...to live in peace. If that's where you are today, I want to suggest two things to you.
First, come to Jesus...“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV When you find rest for your soul you will find the peace of Christ.
Second, remember what He has already gifted to 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 heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27 NKJV
The peace of Jesus is an overcoming peace; it can overcome anything the world brings your way.
