God’s Promise of Peace

peacePeace! A heart at rest. Serenity. This is what the whole world is looking for, isn’t it? The worldly kind of peace is defined as life without conflict. But the peace of God is vastly different. It is tranquility … in any, all, and every circumstance. And it’s something God extends to you.

As a child of God, you don’t have to go looking for peace. You already have God’s powerful promise of His provision. Jesus offers you serenity—His peace. He says, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.” (John 14:27) Yes, Jesus is offering you His rest—the peace of God, but you must accept the offer and apply it or use it.

Where is your faith? Where is your trust? If you are anxious about anything—a job or the lack of one, your children or the lack of them, your future, your health, the many cares of this world, give those unsettling issues over to God. Trust in His ability to help. Then enjoy and experience God’s promise of calming peace.

Oh, what a difference that will make!

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things,
and the God of peace will be with you.”
(Philippians 4:8-9)
