Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
God’s Word provides great comfort for His people. Jesus reassured his disciples, and us, that the peace he left them with was not a peace like the world provides. Jesus’ peace was a real, sustaining and everlasting peace, a peace that passes understanding.
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
We may be living during the end times, times when the world will experience tremendous upheaval, but we are not to fear even if that is the case. Jesus did not give us a spirit of fear, but one of power, of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Think on this for a moment. What does it mean to have a spirit of power, of love and of a sound mind?
Power – The Living God lives within us through the Holy Spirit! Do we realize that there is real power in our peace? When we are at peace in the presence of turmoil, the Holy Spirit can protect us, shield us, and carry us through by the power of the Living God!
Love – God desires that his people experience his love for us and that we share that love with others. Do we love as Christ loved? Do we love his people, his church, his ways, his thoughts? When we love his people, his church, his ways, his thoughts we will find our peace is increased and our experience of his power is increased likewise.
Sound mind – Fear often leads people to act irrationally. The peace of God does not lead to this. A sound mind can allow us to see his working in our life and in our world. When we feel out of control or over our heads in a situation, quickly turn it over to God. What could be a sounder decision than to let the All Mighty, Living God direct our paths!
