“Unwrap Your Gift…Over and Over” by Dr.J. 2016 Fast Post 28

Your peace is connected to your belief. If you have faith in God and believe in Jesus Christ, how can you not have peace? Jesus held out His hand and extended the gift of peace to you; He left it for you. But it is up to you to receive it, over and over again.

John‬ ‭14:1, 27‬ ‭NIV‬‬ “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 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.”

God’s peace is different from the world’s peace. Jesus says so. His peace is still and steady regardless of the circumstances. You can’t panic and have His peace. You can’t be stressed and have His peace. You can’t worry and be anxious and have His peace. When you truly believe that there is a God, a Son, and the Holy Spirit, you will accept and maintain His peace, your gift of His peace.

The world’s peace is unstable and circumstantial. The world’s peace fluctuates when the lights get turned off, when layoffs loom ahead, when spouses leave and abandon you, when illnesses and disease lurk in our bodies, when our children are being used by the enemy, and when our money is lacking.

Circumstances do not change the peace you received from Jesus. You know that even though situations change, God never does. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever more. So what are you anxious about? Why is your heart troubled? What are you afraid of? Every time you are under attack in any area of your life, envision Jesus standing before you with an outstretched hand. In it is a gift. The gift is peace. Unwrap your gift of peace over and over again. God is in control at all times. Dr.J.
