“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
Today I am thankful for God’s gift of peace to me. As His daughter HIS Peace is part of my heritage. It is part of what Christ won for me on the cross. HIS peace is a peace that passes all understanding. When I spend time with Him and become one with Him through the Holy Spirit His peace ministers to me even when life whirls around me.
Recently I took my eyes off of my Beloved and let the pressures of this world get to me. I felt stressed out and overwhelmed. I even began to feel like it was physically hard to breathe! Stress literally makes our blood vessels constrict and makes it harder for oxygen to freely flow throughout our body!
The Lord rescued me from myself, caught my gaze again and Has me safely wrapped up in His arms again. He is so Big and Mighty. He is Our Beloved. He is our peace in the midst of the storm. Lean on Him, release everything to Him. Delight in Him. He gave so much so You could be His and so He could be Your peace.
