What is Peace?!?

Peace ….. it’s talked about. We have wars, people say we should have peace. We think of hippys, we think Peace. The Amish people, live peacefully. What is Peace? According to Wiki; ‘Peace is a state of existence, mentally and spiritually, whereby a person has enough knowledge, strength, and understanding to stay calm in the face of anxiety.’ So basically it’s ‘Hakuna Matata.’ It’s the day, when problems are facing us, that we turn round and say, ‘it’ll be fine – I’m not worried.’ Good thing to have – especially if you are one of many starting exams now. Or if you’re family is struggling for money. Certainty that it will be fine, and therefore enough strength to say – i’m not going to worry. You feeling that certainty?? possibly not. Well, there’s this great line in scripture, Philippians 4:7, that says this – ‘and the peace of God that passes all understanding, guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus.’ Sometimes we face situations, and we’re not going to feel certain. But the good news – God’s peace isn’t limited to our understanding – it goes beyond it. In all situations – exams, issues at home, problems with the boyfriend/girlfriend – big issues and small issues, God offers us certainty. He promises time and time again, that as we turn to Him, He looks after us – our provider, our hope. In Jeremiah 29, God says ‘ I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper not to harm.’ In Romans 8, Paul says we are ‘more than conquerors’, and that ‘all things work together for the good of those that love Him.’ These are two of literally hundreds … But even if you’re not at a place of ‘understanding’ or being certain in these promises …. the bible says that his peace passes beyond that ….. Whether it’s exams or anything else, there is a certainty in scripture – a promise that we don’t have to worry. But even if you can’t grasp that – why not simply ask Jesus to pour a new ‘peace into you.’ Not on that’s based on your feelings – but one that goes far beyond? As ever, if you wat to talk to
