(You’ve Got His Peace—Walk In His Power Over Crisis)

“Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]”

Jesus’ words above shows that the world can promise a certain kind of peace; yet, the peace that He gives you is so different from the peace the world gives. For example, the world, through medical science, has offered a lot in treating certain kinds of ailments, but God is the only One who truly heals totally. Plus that, He also makes you fully whole and restored.

In the world today, many are seeking peace from their pets, social media, the government of the day, and everywhere else except from the Lord. Yet, He’s the only one that gives the kind of peace that man really needs. That peace is power over crises; meaning that, in the midst of the storms, troubles, and pressures of life, you’re unperturbed; full of joy and happiness.

Man can’t help himself; to live meaningfully on earth, he needs the Lord. Life becomes worth living and exciting when you discover that Christ is all you need. He’s the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). The peace He gives you transcends human understanding (Philippians 4:7); it comes with extraordinary grace for excellence, preservation and rest. It originates from the Hebrew word “Shalom” which is a reference to the totality of salvation.

Therefore, when you call the Lord “Jehovah Shalom,” you’re saying He’s the Lord, the very embodiment of your peace, your rest, and your habitation. You don’t have to struggle through life or be buffeted by the pressures of life; Christ is your power over crises! He’s given you so much peace that He has left no place for fear.

It makes no difference the turmoil, distress and troubles in today’s world, refuse to fear, for the Creator of the whole world loves and cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). His unconquerable wings of protection are spread over you. Let His peace rule in your heart, and be anxious for nothing.

Thank you dear Father for justifying me by faith, and granting me peace with prosperity and rest through Christ: this peace guards my heart and mind today. I appreciate your grace in me for excellence, and everlasting love for me, which makes me confident of a life of glory, and triumph, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
