So many of us with the gift of salvation are missing out on beholding what this gift can bring us in our daily lives. We have been given the gift of salvation, of the Holy Spirit, yet we live without peace. Our days are filled with worry and anxiety, instead of the supernatural peace that the Lord can give us.
In fact, Christians don't seem at all set apart from the worry and anxiety of those without Christ. Even though we have the Holy Spirit in us and our eternity set in Him, we exist with the same worry and burdens our non-believing neighbors exist with.
Jesus Christ DIED so that we can BURY our burdens and worries. The life He intends for us to have is one with FREEDOM from the worry of this world.
BEHOLD His PEACE.
John 14:27 says, "Peace I leave you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and afraid."
Soak it up. Breathe it in. Our God offers supernatural peace to us. Not just peace when things are going well, but HIS peace even in the midst of trouble. TRUE PEACE from the PRINCE OF PEACE does not depend on circumstances, but remains in everything by the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT.
Let's quit living as if God is not powerful enough to penetrate our lives with His peace. Break free of the worry, anxiety, and burden that has been weighing you down, and "allow the peace of God, which transcends all understanding to rule your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
Throw off the worry you are beholding and behold His peace.
