“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
The Peace that Christ gives to His followers is not situational, it is not as a result of being surrounded by quiet circumstances.
Foxholes are the holes dug by soldiers that they can dive into when the enemy begins firing upon them. To be huddled in the midst of a firestorm of destruction and violence, it rattles and scares the most hardened and experienced warrior.
It is in times like these that the Peace of Christ settles our hearts and minds. The noise on the outside and the explosive forces that send bone shaking shockwaves through our bodies cannot overcome the Peace that calms the waters of our hearts like oil poured upon water.
The world says that your peace is dependent on your surrounding circumstances. Jesus says that your Peace comes from Him regardless of your surroundings. Have a great day, my friends, as you recognize the Peace that Christ is offering you.
