Day 13 – The Peace of God

25 “These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. 28 You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come to you.’ If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it takes place, so that when it does take place you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me, 31 but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here. (John 14:25-31 ESV)

Have you ever experienced the peace Jesus gives?

 

I remember the first time I experienced the peace of Jesus. It was when I first put my trust in Jesus as my savior, and made him king of my life. The peace of mind I had when he wiped away all of my sin at the very moment was a heavy weight off my shoulders that I didn’t even know I was carrying. All of a sudden, I was no longer compelled to perform or achieve or do xyz for acceptance or validation. The peace in my heart and my mind was mind boggling, I was free for the first time.

 

When we read Jesus’ words here, what we come to understand is that the peace he gives us is not a one time thing. It isn’t a one and done. In fact, the peace he gives to us continues to give us peace the more mired we get with life. The way peace is manifested to us as we get further away from our initial peace from God is through the Holy Spirit. Jesus tells us that the Holy Spirit would continue to manifest the peace of Jesus in us as the world confronts us and makes it more hostile to live as a child of God by reminding us of Jesus' love which gives us peace.

 

If peace is fleeting in your life right now, then pray to God asking for the Holy Spirit to fill you with Jesus’s peace.


If you are at peace in your life right now, then pray that God continues to remind you of his peace.
