What a blessing we have to reflect on the peace that God offers us today. We should be amazed at how it can fill our lives and give us peace and security. The peace that God gives is truly incomparable! Nothing can do for us what the peace of God does. It surpasses our understanding, Philippians 4:7 tells us,” And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” His peace not only surpasses all understanding, but keeps our minds in Jesus Christ.
The Bible assures us that this peace is available in abundance. God has promised us a peace in which we can be immersed and live completely submerged in it. I wonder, how is it that we get this peace? In what way can we walk in this peace and serenity? The way to get it is through our obedience. Obedience to His Word is the key to experiencing His peace in abundance! God has promised us that the fruit of our obedience would be His peace reigning over each of us. His word reminds us, “Oh, if you had paid attention to my commandments! Then had your peace would have been as a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea “(Isaiah 48:18).
Let us pray that this day His peace flow like a river in our lives. The will of the Lord is that we walk daily with his peace. Let nothing and no one steal the peace that He has given us. Always understand that no circumstance or situation we face can cause us to lose the security and peace in the Lord. If we live in obedience and submission to His Word the Lord assures us that his peace will abound in our lives. Thank God that our obedience to the Lord has great results and benefits, unparalleled peace that floods our lives!
