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 (NIV)
Do you think Jesus is stressed out, worried or afraid of anything? It’s no wonder he tells us not to let our hearts be troubled. He’s reminding us that we’re his, we’re with him, and he isn’t shaken by any of the things that weigh us down. Since he’s at peace, we can be at peace too.
The peace Jesus gives is whole, healed, rooted, firm, strong, and unshakeable because it’s rooted in the very core of existence, God himself. He is all-powerful. He has no brokenness or stain. God is perfectly holy. When you find yourself troubled this week, turn that into an opportunity to ask Jesus to help you experience his peace.
