How are you? I hope you’re doing well or, at least, you’re experiencing God’s peace. You know, it’s possible to experience peace even in the midst of the ugliest strifes. I know it’s hard to believe but once you’ve experienced God’s peace in the midst of chaos you know what I mean. God’s peace is ours if we want it. Because it’s not dependent on our outer circumstances. The Spirit of Peace is ours to be received no matter what. And I am not going to live without it. How about you?
Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. (Phil. 4:6-7, AMP)
Just think! God is the Spirit of Peace. As a child of God, the Spirit of Peace is meant for you. So do not give it away for any reason. Cling to Jesus and enjoy his peace. Abide in Christ and experience peace like none other.
Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.](John 14:27, AMP)
The Spirit of Peace
I love knowing God is the Spirit of Peace. God and his peace is with me wherever I go. He guides me, he comforts me, he loves me. When the world is against me, I can run to God and experience his peace. I can live in peace even when there’s no peace or quiet around me.
Finally, believers, rejoice! Be made complete [be what you should be], be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace [enjoy the spiritual well-being experienced by believers who walk closely with God]; and the God of love and peace [the source of lovingkindness] will be with you. (2 Corinthians 13:11, AMP)
Nothing can take the Spirit of Peace from you, so do not give it away. Do not surrender divine peace for any reason. Instead, cultivate peacefulness within you. Memorize scripture, pray, meditate, sing, worship, walk closely with God, and continually enjoy his peace. It is also yours. Revel in it. Rejoice in it. And rest in it.
We are in awe of you.
Thank you for being the Spirit of Peace
and giving your peace to us.
Help us to live continually in it
because we need it as much as we need you.
Bless us, Lord.
We bless your name forever and ever.
In Jesus’ name,
