Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you…Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
As a Believer, you have the peace of God within you. I do not mean you have “a peace” you have “the very peace of God” within you. You have the same peace that God draws from in order to not be moved by any negative situation or circumstance. God has not given us a lower form of peace but His very own peace. God is not in heaven disturbed or bothered by anything! He is at peace. We have that same peace. In fact, He is so much at peace that He is seated in heaven. To be seated is a position of rest. Ephesians 2:6 states that we are seated with Him in heavenly places. God is seated and we are seated with Him which means we can tap into the spiritual fruit of the Spirit, such as peace, here and now on earth. Isaiah 26:3 states that He “wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” We tap into this peace by faith and by keeping our mind stayed on Him because He is the personification of peace. We must trust God to give us His peace. Don’t be troubled or afraid of anything. Receive the peace of God today!
