The Peace of God

As I have aged, like a fine wine or tasty cheese (lol), the peace of God has become such a treasure to me. God, not Buddha, not Allah, not Hindi, not any other false god on the planet promotes and provides eternal peace. God is peace and gives it. And peace is not stillness or quiet or the absence of conflict. Peace is inner assurance and confidence that God is in control and has our eternity secure no matter what storms are raging around us. We have that security by accepting Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection as the sacrifice for our sins. And humbly accepting His necessary gift of Himself makes us secure and loved and provided for and we have this instant peace, security no matter what. Wars could rage around me and the peace would be there. Peace is knowing who God is and that His promises in the Bible are absolutely true. I am His and my confidence lies in Him exclusively. This is peace. It is perfect because from God and mixes with joy to be the internal strength that can do anything through Christ and the Holy Spirit. Nothing seems more precious right now, with maybe the exception of the love and truth which brings it about. These things are our beautiful hope and blessed assurrance. God is so good!!!! I am so thankful!!!! ❤❤❤
