Peace in Jesus!

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will HAVE TROUBLE. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33).

"Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another." (Romans 14:19.). 2) "Pursue peace with all men, and, without which no one will see the Lord." (Hebrews 12:14).

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15

It is very difficult for people to have conflict with others who will not fight! This does not mean that we should make peace at any cost by denying truth. We can remain faithful to truth without going to war, though it might appear costly at the moment. Jesus and many others have done it.

Sometimes it is our difficulties that will interfere with our peace. There are trials and tribulations that we are going through that seem to be getting bigger and larger than life. We wonder sometimes, what we have done wrong? Then we start doubting ourselves and pretty soon we begin to doubt God's ability to overcome. Most of the times, our trials are not punishments from God. They are often tests designed to strengthen us. We have to remain firm and we must trust in God's word, regardless of what the situation look like, because it is not by might, not by power but by my spirit, says the word of God. We have to understand that God is at work or we will get discouraged. WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT CHRIST ALREADY "OVERCOME". That means YOU have victory over sins, YOU have victory over diseases, YOU have victory over rejection, YOU have victory over YOUR finances, YOU have victory over YOUR personal relationships, YOU have victory over depression and emotional brokenness, YOU have power over your addictions, YOU have peace in the midst of your storms because Christ overcome the world. You ca have peace.

The doctor's diagnosis was troubling: you can have peace. Your spouse walk out: you can still have peace. Peace and trust go hand in hand. We you trust God you are able to enjoy peace in the midst of the storm. You know how it is going to end. You have victory in Jesus. Praise Him!. Rest assured that God is able. He loves you. You feel alone but you are not alone. The battle was won on Calvary. You health was restored on Calvary. Your issues were resolved on Calvary. You can have peace.

Friend, You cannot lose when you place your faith in God. Now charge your spirit up with the word of God and walk in victory and let the peace of God Reign!
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Praise the Lord!
