I leave you peace; my peace I give to you. I don't give it as the world gives it. Let not your heart be troubled, nor be afraid. 

John 14:27

We live in a troubled, competitive world, in which it is necessary at all times to take a position and defend it. This generates stress and fatigue.

When Jesus declared these words to the disciples, he was going through a great moment of persecution and tribulation. In the midst of a harrowing scenario, Jesus poured out His peace. 

Only Christ can pour out peace in the midst of war. Only He can give us the peace that passes all understanding and calm our spirits. The peace that the world gives is changeable and fleeting, but the peace of God is comforting and eternal. 

Receive God's peace and calm your heart, the one who won the world is on your side! 

Receiving God's Peace: 

- God gave us access to his peace, seek him through prayer. Pour out your fears and anguish to God, only He can comfort our hearts.

- The Word of God comforts the soul and gives us direction. When we feel God leading us, our hearts are calmed. Seek the Word of God.

To Pray: Lord Jesus, only Your peace can calm our souls We trust in Your power and in Your Word. We want to enjoy your peace, pour out your spirit on us. In Your mighty name, amen.
