The peace of God surpasses all understanding

By Louis Angelo
People define peace is the absence of war, but the Bible went far to define it as the inner peace or peace of mind that is generally associated with bliss, happiness and contentment. It is considered to be a state where our mind performs at an optimal level with a positive outcome.
When we speak about peace, we actually talk about God himself. Longtime before the birth of Jesus Christ,the prophet Isaiah 9:6-7 spoke of him. Wonderful Counselor. Mighty God. Everlasting Father.And Prince of peace. In this series, we have been discovering what truly means to abide in God’s peace.
Beyond understanding,and I simply couldn’t ignore the fact that Jesus is referred to as our prince of peace.
What about the Father who art in Heaven?
He is the King of peace. And we are the Ambassadors of peace in this earth. Blessed are the peace makers, for they shall be called sons of God.
We are born in war and we grew up in the war, and now we produce our children in war time. We have suffered enough;it’s our time to celebrate peace, the super natural peace that is given to us by the Holy Spirit.
The mission of Christ was to bring peace to the world. The death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ was God’s plan for peace, apart from him there is no peace.
John 14:27 says “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives you do I give to you. That means that unconditional peace comes from God, the peace which surpasses all the understanding. The peace that we could not imagine with our little brain.
But the world gives us peace with condition and based on lies and selfish motive.This will never last longer because it is not based on Love.
My brethren before you preach peace, one fact you should know is that peace starts within you. Have peace within yourself. Build good relationship with God, nothing will stand before your bath.
According to 1 peter 3:11 they must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.
Our life style must change as children of God, let us avoid evil things and do what God wanted us to do.
You might have money but you can’t buy peace because it’s from God, peace is our responsibility, we have a task to play and maintain it.
My fellow readers, my prayer is May God almighty touch your heart and giveyou an everlasting peace.
Only one secret in the Bible will change your whole life, I call it agolden rule.
As a Christian if you lack peace,seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all things will be added to you.
Solomon, the son of David asked God for wisdom and knowledge, but God gave him every things, health, wealth, nation …etc.
Let us destroy the temple of witchcraft in our country and rebuild God’s temple.
We are alive because other people sacrificed themselves in prayer for the sake of this nation.
As a nation, let us come together before God and humble ourselves before him and confess our sins, he is faithful and just, he will deliver us.Let us pray for our nation, may the Lord restore and heal our country,may you touch our leader’s hearts and change them in Jesus name.
God is always listening to a broken spirit and contrite heart, we still have time to rectify our mistake. Because he said, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways,then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.”
Let us repent and turn away from our wicked ways, and come to God he will forgive our sins, he will wipe all our tears away.
May God bless you!
