Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] John 14:27 (emphasis mine) It's a choice to walk in peace. When things get crazy you have a choice to be at peace or lose your mind. The word is very clear about this, "Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. " When things are not going your way do not let your hearts be troubled. It's not easy staying in peace but Jesus wants us to fight for it. Refuse to succumb to anxious thoughts. Refuse to panic and fret. Choose peace. "Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled. " There is so much opportunity to lose our peace today. Put on the news, read the papers, talk to people and you will see it as clear as day. But Jesus goes against the grain. He doesn't advocate us succumbing to fear. Instead He tells us to stay in peace. He encourages us to walk in the peace He has given us. Today the word is simple, stay in peace no matter what! When fear, terror, confusion, and anxiety come, stay in peace. Easier said than done I know. But we are not alone. The Holy Spirit will help us in our weaknesses. The bad news will keep coming but despite being surrounded by such darkness hold on to peace. We can't afford to live without peace. Peace is found in His word, it's found in prayer as you commune with Him. Let's choose peace today!
