It’s so easy in this world to arrive at a place where there is beauty, but there is not peace. Where there is sunshine but turmoil, where there is fellowship and partnership and yet there is peace lacking.
John 14:27 says – 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.
This week I personally struggled with a lack of peace and found myself without the very peace that I have been so graciously afforded so very many times throughout my life. The “peace” that is graciously given to us from the LORD our GOD through the HOLY SPIRIT is a “peace” that is above all other peace. It’s truly a “peace” like no other, because it is given from and extended from GOD Himself, and it is not able to be replicated, duplicated or cloned in any way or by any other means. We can have times of happiness and deep joy, but “that peace”, is only available through and from GOD, and is unlike any other, amen.
Because GOD is ABOVE ALL OTHERS, and is LIKE NO OTHER, HIS Gifts are of the same calibre or of the same quality, there are no equals.
GOD’S PEACE, SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING.. GOD’S PEACE IS EVERLASTING, AND HAS A FULLNESS AND COMPLETENESS IN IT, THAT IS NOT DESCRIBABLE IN HUMAN TERMS..
HIS peace is the type of peace, that can see you through any difficulty that you may or will ever face. John 16:33 says – “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
If you are lacking in peace and cannot seem to find any that is lasting, go to HIM. Go to the source and humbly ask HIM, to flood your life and inner being with HIS peace and HIS goodness and HIS mercy through JESUS CHRIST, our KING OF KINGS and LORD OF ALL CREATION.
Psalm 23:6 – Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever, amen.
Father GOD, we come before you in the NAME of JESUS, and we are IN AWE of YOU. YOU ARE OUR GOD, and we are your people, and we humbly ask YOU for YOUR Peace to be graciously poured out over each and everyone of our lives. Help, guide and direct each one of us in all ways, and may our lives’ become a testimony to YOUR Glory. Help us to encourage others and share YOUR Love and lead hearts in YOUR direction. May we be reminded in times of trouble and turmoil, that YOU have made available for us, YOUR Peace, that truly surpasses all understanding. May each one of our hearts, and our friends and family’s hearts draw ever closer to YOUR Heart each and every day, we ask these things in JESUS’ HOLY NAME, amen.
Thank YOU HOLY SPIRIT for all that YOU are continually at work on – in each one of us.. ALL GLORY AND HONOR TO YOU JESUS CHRIST, OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR KING AND OUR SUPPLIER OF ALL OUR NEEDS.
Be blessed my friends, and remember the gifts and tools that HE has given to us on loan, are only useful when sharing with others, amen.
All GLORY AND HONOR to HIM ALWAYS.
Yours in CHRIST,
