My dear brothers and sisters, dedicating your lives to singing for Jesus: “For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, “MAY PEACE BE WITHIN YOU.” (Psa. 122:8)
We can make the decision to stop allowing ourselves to get upset, aggravated and frustrated over every little thing. Although we may think, I can’t help it, according to Jesus, we can help it. He offers us peace within us that can keep us from reacting to turmoil…
“Don’t worry about anything. INSTEAD, TELL GOD ABOUT EVERYTHING. Ask and pray. Give thanks to him. And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:6-7)
When we are born again – when we have made Jesus Christ the Lord of our life and we have entered the kingdom of God – then the fruit of that relationship is: “…righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit…” (Rom. 14:17).
“LORD, you will give PERFECT PEACE to anyone who commits himself to be faithful to you. That’s because he trusts in you. “Trust in the LORD forever…” (Isa. 26:3-4)
What is perfect peace? Can we define it? Yes, it is a condition of freedom from disturbance within the soul; it is perfect harmony ruled, by God, within us. The Hebrew word “shalom” has in it the idea of soundness of health, so that to be filled with perfect peace is to be spiritually healthy and free from all discord within the soul. There can be no room for jealousy, envy, discontent, uncontrolled temper, selfishness, pride or intolerance in the soul which is filled with perfect peace.
PEACE, PEACE WONDERFUL PEACE COMING DOWN FROM THE FATHER ABOVE…
FaithLine, the bible says: “…the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
