The Peace That Passes All Understanding
Jesus said the peace I give you is not as the world gives you. His peace is born of the imperishable seed placed into your spirit by the Holy Spirit when you totally surrender your life from your heart to Him. The worlds peace is a temporary happiness brought on by some fleshly experience and never last, but always leaves you empty. And when that peace leaves then fear fills that vacuum and and the roller coaster ride in your mind of searching for that peace again begins. For many it is brought on by circumstances in your life. Negative circumstances for sure, but the end result is fear and loneliness and feelings of inadequacy in life. Many turn to drugs or alcohol or sexual perversions like porn to try to gain some feeling of pleasure and happiness. The problem is none of those things work and the roller coaster ride continues in life. Many think if I can only make enough money but realize the emptiness is still there even after the money and possessions of things come rolling in. Some think that only if I can find the right partner or find my soul mate to love and love me then the peace will come. After some time in that relationship the realization hits home that they can’t make you happy with joy deep inside your soul either. The truth is no person, place or thing can give you the love and peace you and every human being longs for.
Jesus really is your answer. Let me say that again; Jesus really IS your answer. The arisen Son of God loves you with an everlasting love that will never leave you or forsake you and will abide forever with you as you learn to trust Him and live for Him. Jesus will fill that void in your soul with His love. It happens when you totally surrender your will to Him and make the decision that no matter what life brings, you will always trust Him because He cares for you and loves you. When you have His love, then your mate, your job, your surrounding will become peaceful and you will know true joy deep inside. Not happiness as the world gives you, but honest to goodness joy and peace. Why? Because you know All things are in His hand and control and this earth is Not your home, you are only passing through and will live forever in heaven for ever and ever and ever. When you realize His great love for you and His peace rest upon you, you actually enter into His rest and have stopped fighting with yourself and others and have given yourself to your Lord and Savior who is Lord of Lords and soon coming King of Kings. He said don’t be afraid for wars and rumors of wars they will happen. Don’t be afraid, the seas will roar and the earthquakes will happen. Don’t be afraid of man who can kill the body but not your soul that returns to God. Fear God and God only! And in that fear of Him is the realization that He loves you so much that He Did give His only Son for you who paid the price and penalty for all your sins so now you don’t ever, ever have to worry again. Jesus said while on the cross “it is finished” it is fulfilled. The peace that passes understanding that Jesus spoke of is real and Your spirit is sealed for the day of redemption. Don’t be afraid of all the things coming upon the world, just remind yourself your only here for a short time anyway and glory awaits you on the other side in heaven. Jesus said “I will never leave you or forsake you” so pray and live your life close to Him and believe His word, not what you see or hear happening in the world. Remember “for we walk by faith not by sight” And repent of your sins and believe Jesus is alive and died for you and ask Him to save you and fill you with the Holy Spirit and get baptized after you have believed with your whole heart if you haven’t done so already. God loves you, no one else will love you unconditionally like God does. No one can give you true peace like Jesus does, just let go and trust Him and see for yourself….,,
