The Peace of God
‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’
Christianity is not about our effort – it is about Christ’s effort. Christianity is not about our sacrifice – it is about Christ’s sacrifice. Christianity is not living a life of toil trying to attain inner peace – Christ has given us his own peace. The moment we said ‘yes’ to Jesus, the moment we looked at love on a tree, we received his very own life (Col. 3:4), which includes his inexhaustible, stable peace. You are a partaker of the emotional life of Christ himself!
You do not need to try to attain inner peace, nor do you need to manufacture your own, you have received the peace of God! The Godhead; Father, Son and Spirit have always enjoyed perfect peace and you are now a partaker of that family (2 Pet. 1:4)! You can enjoy that peace that transcends understanding and earthly circumstances (Phil. 4:7).
You are no longer part of the dominion of darkness, the system of emotional exhaustion, no, you are a ruler of the Kingdom of light (Col. 1:13), the oasis of righteous, PEACE and joy in the Holy Ghost (Rom. 14:17). You don’t need any more peace, you have God’s own peace, and it’s in your Spirit. You don’t need to search or ask, just believe. Walk according to the fact that you are already filled with peace and are a beneficiary of the emotional life of Christ and you will manifest the peace which is already inside of you!
