“Peace That Comes From Jesus”

Peace Jesus' way

by Dona Hake

I love to eat as much as I can foods that are all natural.  The more I do this the more I can hardly handle artificial anything.  There are so many imitation things in the food as well as other things in the retail industry.  Things that are mere copies and some of those imitators will never serve you as well as the real or original thing.

Jesus spoke of His peace in the scriptures.  He said that the world indeed has peace but His peace is nothing like it.  It seems to me that in the midst of speaking to those that were tempted to be troubled that He was stating who He was and the peace that came only from Him.

John 14:27 (ERV)

 “I leave you peace. It is my own peace I give you.

I give you peace in a different way than the world does.

So don’t be troubled. Don’t be afraid.”

Let us look to His peace and not those things that we perceive to give us peace that only has a short life.  Today, be reminded that His peace comes in a different way.  Look expectantly for His peace that is truly above and beyond our human reasoning.   And as Jesus said, “So don’t be troubled and don’t be afraid.”
