Do you feel like your life has been robbed of the peace you so desperately need? Peace is a right Jesus died to give you. You can take back your peace and keep it for good!
There’s a thief in our midst. No alarm system, security camera or armed guard can keep him out. There’s only one thing that can stop him—YOU. He’s come around quietly in the past, taking small things here and there. Maybe you didn’t even notice. But over time, perhaps he’s been able to steal something much bigger, and much more important—your peace. Maybe he’s even been able to get away with it, too—until now.
Peace is valuable. So much so that the world will go to extremes to acquire it. They’ll pursue money and fame, use drugs and commit adultery. With all this effort, they’ve found one thing—it doesn’t work. That’s because you’ll never find peace through sin or the world’s way. The world has no peace to offer you. There is only one way to enjoy true peace—Jesus—the Prince of Peace.
Through His peace, you can live free of anxiety, depression, fear, poverty, lack and sickness. You can live in contentment, joy, security, rest and wholeness. In fact, Jesus died to give it to you. He said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives” (John 14:27, NKJV).
That’s why the peace you have through Him is worth fighting for.
If you aren’t experiencing that kind of peace in your life, are you ready to deal with the thief? Each day this week we will look at one of the ways to take back your peace.
