Abundance of Peace

The peace that is fabricated and promised by the world is fake. It lasts momentarily and fades away. But the peace that Jesus gives is true and eternal. That is why 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)
 
Once I met a princess who did not know Jesus. My hosts requested me to pray for her. When I met her, I asked, “What is it that you want me to pray for you?”. I was shocked by her reply. She said, “Sir, I have everything in this world; a good husband and a son, I do not have any shortcomings; but in my heart I don’t have peace. Pray that I may have peace.”When Jesus lived in this world, He had to face many hindrances. They came by in His life to destroy His peace but He found peace in His heavenly father. One day when Jesus was going in a boat with His disciples, suddenly a furious storm raged leaving the disciples terrified. But Jesus was sound asleep in the boat. Nothing disturbed His peace. (Matthew 8:24).
Look at what our gracious Lord Jesus tells us, “My peace I give you”.  “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” (Psalm 119:165).  According to this verse, there is no hindrance in the peace that our gracious Lord Jesus gives us. “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” (Isaiah 26:3) According to this verse, He gives us His peace that is totally Christ-centered and perfect in quality. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)

SCRIPTURE to LIFE
 
Are you suffering from lack of peace today? Are you crying?Even though you are a follower of Jesus you have troubles? Bible says, ".. the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace." (Psalm 37:11).
Even in the midst of your troubles He will give you perfect peace. He will never leave you as an orphan in this world. He will bless you with the peace that is in Him. He will make the peace that transcends all understanding to keep on filling your heart solet not your hearts be troubled.
Prayer:
Wonderful Father! I thank you for all the peace you are going to shower upon me. Teach me not to run after the peace that the world has to offer. Let me understand that the worldly peace is like the shifting cloud. Help me seek your peace and walk in your path. Help me to over come the trials in the path you show me without dithering from you. Help me acknowledge you at all times.
 
Loving Father, in Jesus  name I pray, Amen.
