I challenge you to try and understand the peace of God
For as long as I can remember…as long as I’ve been alive, in fact, men and women have talked about peace on earth. And for as long as I’ve been alive, that ideal has remained only an ideal…not a reality. Peace talks seem to take place every year somewhere. Usually the focus is on the Middle East, but they don’t hold a monopoly on those talks. And year after year after year the real peace never comes. So, that brings up a question in my mind. If we humans can’t seem to wrap our minds around our own peace and make it last, how can we possibly expect to understand the peace of God? Well, I can say with total confidence…we can’t understand. No one on earth can. But guess what…?
…you can still HAVEÂ the peace of god even if we can’t fully understand it. God wants you to have peace. He knows the world is full of war, full of evil, and full of people who want to rob you of your peace. But the God of the Bible is a God of peace. He can give you peace of mind even in the middle of a world of no peace. He’s ready, willing, and able to do it for every single person alive. All you gotta do is ask. I know I say that over and over here on my website, but it’s true. God won’t force you to accept His peace…or His love. He wants to know you want it. Simple as that.
There’s a place in the Bible where it talks about the peace of God, and it says His peace “surpasses all understanding“. Can you even imagine how peaceful that must be? I can’t. Oh sure, I can conjure up images in my head of walking through flowing fields of green grass, under a warm sun, with a cool breeze across my face. But God’s peace surpasses that. Maybe you can see yourself lying under a bright blue sky listening to the birds’ songs as you realize no one is going to be able to rob you of your peace. But God’s peace surpasses that. Like the verse said, it “surpasses ALL understanding”. And you know what “all” means. It means every bit.
I hope you discover the peace of God today…right now if necessary. Even if you can’t completely understand it, you can rest assured that it’s a feeling that will last forever. If you’ve already experienced the peace of God, who else have you told? Don’t horde. Share.
