Peace is freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility. John 14:27 says, "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."
We face a plethora of challenges on a daily basis and it appears that the enemy is always busy. Well, lets be real, that is his job, TO STEAL, KILL & DESTROY! So, where does that leave you and I, with a promise that God will give us perfect PEACE, for THOSE whose mind is STAYED on HIM. For every action, there is a reaction and with that we must allow God to teach us how to REACT. There are many things that I encounter, that I want to act a plum fool, but I have to stop and think that God dwells within me. My flesh might get weak, but I have to know and understand that I have been called to operate according to the Spirit.
This means that when things trouble me, perplex me, hurt me, or disappoint me I can reach to my Father and ask Him to F. I. X. me, which means help to Find Inner Xcellence! We serve an excellent Father and if we were created in His image and likeness that means we are to walk, talk, think and breath excellence every day. But, I must say that having inner peace is a choice. I have witnessed people who choose to walk in turmoil, its like they thrive off of it.
I have made a choice that I don't have to accept anything but God's goodness, peace and favor. Therefore, when I am faced with adversity, I don't linger in it, I choose to start my day over at that time. We are FREE to be at PEACE, but how bad do we want it? Today, is a new day, so allow God to F. I. X. you!
