“27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” – John 14:27 (NIV)
Jesus does not give to us as the world gives. In the world things can be given and taken away. Jesus is making it clear that he gives us peace and he will not take it away. Because of this promise of peace we do not have to be troubled or worried because we can rest in the peace that Jesus has given us.
Thank you Lord for the peace you have given us. Thank you that we do not need to be troubled or worried because you have already gone ahead of us and will make everything right. Even though we may not know how things are going to work out, let us rest in your arms of comfort and peace. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
