God's peace

Isaiah 26. 3 : "To him who is steadfast in his feelings, you assure peace, peace, because he trusts in you."


Definition : the state of someone who enjoys inner calm; peace of mind. Have conscience in peace; feeling of calm.


Numbers 6.24 : "May the LORD bless you and keep you, and let the lord make his face shine upon you, and grant you his grace: let the Lord lift up his face to you, and give you peace."


Despite our facilities of modern life, our mind is not at peace. A sincere soul who seeks God can not find peace in a religion, the new age or a sect. When we are in doubt or fear of our future, our soul needs hope based on certainties. We all feel an inner void that only God can fill.


John 14.27 : "I will give you peace, I will give you my peace, I will not give you as the world gives: let not your heart be troubled, nor be alarmed."


The peace of God is not of the world, it is for this reason that Jesus was sent because he was the only one able to offer it to us. The Lord Jesus wants to share with us this peace of happiness and grace today. 

This promise is certain because:


Colossians 1.2: "Jesus made peace by the blood of his cross."


To transform us, the Lord desires above all a personal relationship with each one of us. For that, it is essential to put one's life back to Jesus Christ and to remain attached to his Word. The Holy Spirit can then renew our spirit by giving us this peace. It is he who transforms, reassures and strengthens our inner being.


Ezekiel 36.26 : "I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your body, and I will give you a heart of flesh."


When we can sometimes succumb to anguish, anxiety or fear, the love of God keeps us, it is a plenitude, an ocean, a source that we do not dry up. "Do not be afraid" and "to trust" does not stop saying The Word, that is how peace asserts itself and grows.


Philippians 4.6 : "Do not be anxious about anything, but in all things make your needs known to God by prayers and supplication, with thanksgiving, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds. in Jesus Christ."


When we are connected to the Lord, we receive all that is good, we live this reality and communicate peace to all around us. It is the presence of the Holy Spirit that allows that. It is not a religious habit, but a firm decision of heart positioned in Christ.


1 Samuel 25.6 : "And you shall speak to him thus:" For life to be at peace, and peace to your house and all that is yours!"


Conclusion: when we turn to God, we can go to a path of light. Our vision of life will be enlightened by this new nature by His Holy Spirit, the Lord offers us its fullness. The peace of God is beyond all understanding, it raises us up and fills us with joy. Delors this engages us in a new attitude, a totally different way of seeing and appreciating.


2 Thessalonians 3.16: "May the Lord of Peace himself give you peace at any time, anyway, may the Lord be with you all!" Amen!
