Is your Peace like a river or white water rapids?
Do you need a life jacket?
What makes the peace of Jesus complete?
“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
What type of peace is inside you?
That should tell you volumes and in fact libraries full of information on what god you serve. If you still struggle with sin you are still under the law and your soul is not at peace- that is as simple as I know how to put it.
Do I sometimes struggle with a friend? Yes and those lessons are usually a good reminder of my ego getting in the way of His unfailing Love.
Christ left a peace with His disciples and He wants to leave that peace with you but that peace can only be attained by His saving Grace! Grace means the law did its job and now you are free to be under Grace and not under the Law! This freedom is an indescribable peace that cleanses away ALL guilt and shame.
Here is a meditation for you. Find a time and a place where you probably won’t be disturbed. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths. On each exhale let God take away the stress and as you do begin to get a picture of that long list of things that cause you guilt and shame. Once you see it see Jesus begin to wipe it off the list with his mail scared hand. His blood cleanses you from ALL unrighteousness. As you get this picture do this:
Breathe in and say:
“Lord grant me”
Breathe out and say:
Practice this until the list is empty and the slate is clean!
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!
