Perhaps you’ve experienced times recently where the peace of God seemed absent from your life. His peace which passes all understanding seemed to elude.
In such times, fellow pilgrim, the problem is that you’ve allowed your feelings to get in the way of the faithful God in your mind. Your struggle isn’t with the lack of His peace, or power, or presence, but ignorance or unwillingness to take Him at His Word.
Jesus said: Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).
If your heart is in turmoil, child of the heavenly Father, today isn’t the day to pray for peace in your life. God has already blessed you with all the peace He is (Ephesians 1:3). The One who stood in the boat during the storm and spoke the simple word: Peace, be still (Mark 4:39), has already implanted His peace within you. Jesus – the Prince of Peace – dwells in you permanently. Where He is, there is His peace also. Instead of asking for peace, pray for greater faith to believe in the sufficiency of His Word.
