Peace is a precious thing. Peace of mind, peace and quiet, peace from conflict, Miss America’s “world peace,” but the most precious peace one can have is the peace that only Jesus can give, that precious peace that passes all understanding. One of the last things Jesus instilled in His disciples was, “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” That peace He gave His disciples is the same one He gives to us. If that wasn’t enough, He also promised to give them, and us, the Helper, the Holy Spirit. If you think you’re life is in turmoil from uncontrollable circumstances, health, finances, children, think of the turmoil the disciples went through as they turned the world upside down! His peace was with them. Allow His peace to comfort you, overflow you. Do as Paul told the Philippians. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God …” Did you catch the key there, in everything by prayer with thanksgiving? Seek Him, trust Him, in turmoil or not, and let that peace that surpasses all understanding keep your hearts and minds through Jesus!
