“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27 NLT
Jesus has left us a gift...peace. I don't know about you, but that sure sounds good to me. There are so many things that we deal with in life that disrupt the peace that Jesus intends for us to live and walk in.
“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NLT
The answer to our peace is in Him not the things of this world. Jesus says that He has overcome those things that tend to rob us of His peace.
His peace has overcome...fear...worry...anxiety...depression. As we find our peace in Him we can also overcome the things of the world.
“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 NLT
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Isaiah 26:3 NLT
The Prince of Peace offers us perfect peace.
