Peace I leave with you
John 14:27

Jesus left us with His peace. This is not peace like the world gives. The kind of peace He has given is peace that calms the troubled heart and melts away fear. The quiet, calm, still, presence of the Lord is actually quite powerful. The peace of God is not something weak or fragile. There is great strength in His peace. There is rest in the presence of the Lord--rest for our spirit, soul and body. Rest brings strength. Selah...Pause and think calmly about that.

Father God, I pray for Your people to receive an understanding of Your peace--the peace which surpasses all comprehension. I pray that Your peace guard their hearts and minds--their thoughts and intentions. Draw Your people into Your presence, into Your place of peace and rest. Let Your peace sanctify us and preserve us, completing us, making us blameless before You at the coming of the Lord Jesus. May we be the salt of the earth--preserving. And the light of the world--revealing.
