Jesus' Peace

It is Jesus' desire for us to have His peace. It is a peace we may not be able to understand, but need to readily accept. He also calls His followers to live a peaceful life.  Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.- Jesus in Matthew 5:9
Having an inner peace can only come from having an immovable trust in the Lord. It comes from focusing on God and not on your circumstances. It is the true belief that all things are possible with God (Matt 19:26), that He truly does work all things together for good (Rom 8:28), that if you trust in the Lord with all your heart He will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).
What causes you to be stressful, hassled, or troubled?
Have you asked God to take control of your life?
Ask yourself why do feel anxiety instead of peace, is it because you don’t trust God is really for you or are you afraid that His path isn’t where you want to go?

Having Jesus' peace means trusting God in all things past, present and future. Release your cares and receive His grace, mercy, love, and peace right now. Amen?
