So many people in the world are searching, longing for peace. Nations want peace. Families want peace. Individuals want peace. Yet, it doesn’t come. And when it doesn’t come it doesn’t mean that it’s your fault. You are probably not to blame. For we look for peace in all the wrong places. Some look to jobs, careers, governments, parents, spouses, money. If only……
Peace through efforts in this world either doesn’t come or is fleeting. But real peace, lasting peace, peace that reaches the depths of your soul only comes from one place. And you don’t have to deserve it, earn it, or capture it. True peace comes as a gift from God. He not only gives you Devine peace, he gives you the peace that is from, and belongs to our Savior. The Lord Jesus.
Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” ( John 14:27)
It doesn’t come from the world or the things of the world, so the world cannot take it from you. This inner spiritual peace comes from your connection to God through Christ Jesus. Take a deep breath and receive His peace. The world wants to distract us in order for us to ignore the gift. Fall upon the love and mercy of God. His peace He gives you. – gene
