“Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]” John 14:27 (AMPC)
Here is a priceless gift you have been given beloved—freely granted in its entirety, by the One Who loves you so. He knows what life can try to throw at you to wear you down, or wear you out. And here He invites you to step away from the chaos and confusion and step into something far greater than it all—His Peace! Not the kind of peace the world tries to come up with that is temporary, fragile and and fleeting, but the actual substance of peace that says, “I have you in the palm of My hand now, and I always will”.
This is not something you can manufacture yourself, or strive to find, but a treasure meant to simply receive. It is a package wrapped in mystery, for it is hard to understand how it could be so, but if you will stretch out your hands to accept it, and allow Him to impart to you His own peace—the very essence of Who He is—His peace will embrace you!
Peace that silences the siren song of fear and allows you to rest, as nothing else will do. Take heart beloved one and let courage be your guide. He will give you all you need and Jesus, Who is the Prince of Peace, forever committed to your good, will carry you through!
