Peace perfect peace comes with a high price tag. It has been purchased through the Blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross. It cleared us of our helpless position and provides guaranteed hope for now and all eternity. It also gives us the ability to live fruitful conditions within circumstances, while we travel our earthly life, in quiet confidence and joy.
When we are troubled we will cry out for peace which He says He alone gives. Not as the world gives, which is relief from temporal troubles, happy circumstances, escape patterns for just the here and now. We pray desiring the world’s mindset and wonder why we don’t have peace. Because peace comes from above and from a PERSON, Jesus Christ.
In John chapters 14-16 Jesus gives an understanding on how to be nourished in the peace that He gives. Praying for peace within but refusing to rely on the PERSON of PEACE may close the door to the supply we so desperately need and desire.
To have a mindset of wanting peace but not paying the price of loving Jesus with our whole heart, departing from the ways of the world, and resisting the enemy will withhold His peace that He has already provided, freely. It is not a thing we obtain but a Person we trust.
He never said peace would be without tribulations, but peace could still be ours in the tribulation of life.
