Peace From God
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:7
God gives us divine peace that we cannot find in the world. Peace is a fruit of the Spirit that can constantly feed our soul. We live for Christ and we know our eternal home is Heaven, and that is essential in having divine peace.
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. (Romans 8:5) We are guided by the Spirit, and He gives us peace even in this sinful world. You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. (Isaiah 26:3) God has total power over the universe, and we walk with God through Christ who is always with us.
The peace from God never goes away, even when life is difficult. If our thoughts are more on the world, our soul cannot fully experience the peace from the Spirit. If our thoughts are on things above and we pray for peace, our soul will experience divine peace.
As we get closer to Christ, the peace gets stronger in our soul and our faith gets stronger. The more faith we have, the more we peace we experience. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. (James 4:8) The closer we are to the Father and the Son, the blessings in our soul which includes peace, all get stronger.
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7) With our hearts filled with God’s love, we are drawing near to the Lord because God is love. With hearts filled with God’s love, our faith will increase and we will total dependence in the Lord. Our hearts become more like the heart of Jesus as we personally minister to souls, reflecting Jesus to everyone and telling them about salvation in Christ.
Today, seek to draw closer to the Lord by reflecting Jesus to everyone and pray for peace to fill your soul. Never let anything in the world take away the peace that transcends understanding.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving me your divine peace to cope with this world. Let the world around me see the peace in my heart, and I will tell them it comes from Heaven. In Jesus name, Amen
