3030 Challenge: Day 11
If you want to really enjoy your life, peace is important. In the Amplified Version, John 14:27 reads: “[Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.” Jesus basically said here, “I’m leaving you My peace. Now you need to do all you can to hold on to your peace and stop letting yourself get upset.”
There are many great scriptures in the Bible that reveal how we can have the peace Jesus gives and actually live with it every day. Here are a few ways you can apply John 14:27 to your life:
- See the value of peace. Maybe you need to take peace a little more seriously. If you don’t think it’s a big deal to lose your temper, worry all day or get stressed-out, you may not appreciate the gift of peace as much as you should. First Peter 3:11 says we should search for peace “and seek it eagerly” (AMP).
- Trust God. This is the key to receiving and holding on to peace. When we come to God and give Him all of our cares, we experience the blissful relief from fear and worry (Matthew 11:28-30; 1 Peter 5:7).
- Let peace be the umpire of your life. If you are thinking about doing something but don’t have peace about it, don’t do it. God leads us with His peace, so if you’re not peaceful, it’s not His way for you to go. (Colossians 3:15 AMP)
Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and He wants you to live a peaceful life!
Walk It Out
Look up each of the scripture references listed. Read them slowly and consider what God is speaking to you about His peace. Make some notes about the specific attributes of a peaceful life versus a life without peace based on what these verses reveal to you. It can be helpful to read a couple of different translations to get more insight. Spend some time asking God to help you evaluate your level of peace in your daily life. If you need more of it, just ask and receive!
