Here is the most important part of peace when it comes to following Jesus. We have so much trying to rattle us, trying to get in our heads, trying to steer us off course, and the last thing we need is to add in personal or external discord to the mix. God gives us a peace with him, a peace that guards our hearts so that we can know when everything else might tremble, he is stable. It’s a peace that lets us know whatever may come, we can survive. Whatever may fall by the wayside, we know who is with us. Whatever happens, we know how this all ends. It’s a peace that guards us.
Have you allowed the peace of God to guard your heart? Have you trusted its health and security to the knowledge of his work and grace? Are you at peace?
