Is it just me, or does it seem as though peace is getting harder and harder to come by in our fast-paced, terror-ridden, success-driven, disease-threatened, media-saturated, economically- troubled world?
But I believe Christians can have peace -- all the time! After all, Jesus said in John 14:27, Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Was He just kidding? I don’t think so. I think this supernatural peace actually belongs to us, which means we can be living in it 24/7, no matter what’s happening in the world around us. In fact, this peace is meant to sustain us through all the troubles of this world.
So how do we keep it in our hearts and homes when everything around us screams turmoil, disaster and fear? I believe we have to facilitate the peace. Here are four ways to fill your heart and home with the peace that already belongs to you in Christ.
