We need to hold on to this promise knowing that when we trust in YHWH wholeheartedly we will have peace, and the peace He gives us is not as the world gives, it’s an everlasting peace. We need to listen to what He said in His word that He promises peace to His people, His saints (Psalm 85:8).
Peace is Yeshua’s continual gift to us via His Holy Spirit. God gives us peace even in the darkest moments of our lives; you can have peace when everyone else around you is falling apart. All we have to do is approach Him with confidence and then receive His Peace with a thankful and grateful heart, because He is our peace.
Sometimes the hurts of life like hear breaks, rejection, and disappointments can weigh us down. But the peace of God transcends all of these weighty things in life. God gave us His word full with promises of Peace, the word of HaShem (God) is filled with soothing words of peace, assuring us of His love that brings us peace.
To KNOW God as your peace is to KNOW that you should not allow “your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
Jesus said in John 14:27 “What I am leaving with you is shalom(peace) — I am giving you My shalom (peace). I don’t give the way the world gives.” That’s the reassurance that His peace is not of this world but it’s heavenly. In this world we have no peace without Christ.
Abba told us in Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
We need know that Yeshua (Jesus) is our Peace every moment of our life and we must continually practice His Presence to stay in His peace. God encourages us to “Seek peace and pursue it.” Psalms 34:14
If you have trouble sleeping hold on this promise “I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.” Psalm 4:8. Our peace for our safety comes when we put our trust entirely in the Lord.
When we keep our minds on Yeshua and we put our complete trust in Him we will have Perfect Peace in our heart, mind, spirit and soul. YHWH’s Peace can be our portion at all times and in all circumstances. Psalm 119:165 says “Great peace have they who love Your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” When we fill our hearts with God’s word, we are filling it with His peace.
I will give My people strength, and I will bless them with peace.
May the Peace Yeshua (Jesus) shine upon you, in such a powerful way that you would not be unable to notice how weak or strong you are feeling right now. May it cause you to be so focused on Him that the things of Heaven become more a reality to you than your present situation. I prayer, that the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every circumstance, as you allow the peace of Christ to rule in your hearts every day and all day long. Abba I prayer that You, the God of hope, fill Your people with all joy and peace as they trust in they You and You only. In Jesus name. Amen!
I close with saying “Grace and shalom (peace) to you from God our Father and from the Lord Yeshua the Messiah,” Galatians 1:3 (CJB)
