Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]

— John 14:27 (AMPC)

Jesus, Your Prince of Peace

Adapted from the resource Closer to God Each Day - by Joyce Meyer

When we are stressed out, we usually try to eliminate the things that are causing our problems. But the source of stress is not really our difficulties, circumstances, and situations. Stress comes when we approach problems with the world’s perspective rather than faith in Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

It was Jesus’ blood that bought our peace. Peace is ours as a gift from Him, but we need to be willing to change our approach to life. We cannot have anxiety, frustration, bitterness, strife and offense, or rigid, legalistic attitudes and enjoy the peace of God.

Even though we will have disturbing issues to deal with, we can have Jesus’ peace because He has overcome the world and deprived the world of its power to harm us (John 16:33). He left us with the power to “stop allowing” ourselves “to be agitated and disturbed”! Peace is available; all you have to do is choose it!

The Prince of Peace, Jesus, Who lives inside those who have received Him, knows and will reveal to us the specific actions for us to take in every situation to lead us into peace.

Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for Your perfect peace. Because of Your great love for me, Your Word promises me that I can live in peace and free from stress, anxiety, frustration, bitterness, strife, and offense! Help walk this out in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
