“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid” John 14:27 (NRSV)
Everybody is afraid! Believe it or not, the entire world is panicking! Every individual just want to find the meaning to the events happening around.
Have you ever heard someone says; ‘why is this happening?’ This is because many sad, worrisome events going on in the world, the earthquakes, the wars, the terrorism, the suicidal rates, the murders, and several crazy issues, are indeed, very scaring.
Often, if you are not careful, you will found your faith, shaking. It is normal because you are human. You have feelings, you understand everything, and you have the ability to discern between good and evil.
And Jesus Christ knows how much we are going to pass through on this earth; this is why He leaves us this beautiful assuring message in the verse above.
There is the world peace, such that your government promises (but never fulfil), the one from your social leaders, from your banks, your office, your clubs and lots of them, BUT the Peace that comes from God is completely the opposite.
When the Peace of God is upon your life, it surpasses all human understanding because everyone around you will see the impact of this Peace on you. The Peace of God is durable, comforting, assuring, and life changing. You won’t feel any fear, or worry about anything, because you have the assurance that God is in charge.
Don’t listen when you hear the entire world leaders coming together, in bide to bring world peace. This is just human arrangement, and no matter how they try, they will end up wasting so much time and energy for nothing.
Can you ask yourself; ‘what is the tangible result of last year Copenhagen Global Warming summit?’
Jesus says in the book of Saint John 14:30, (NRSV), “I will no longer talk much with you, FOR THE RULER OF THE WORLD IS COMING. He has no power over me.”
The attempt to find world peace is okay, but looking for such through 100% human effort, is entirely a waste of time. Every leader must come to realise how much the presence of God is needful right now.
We can’t bring in world peace all by our own human efforts, because the devil will not watch us succeed in that. Devil is the ruler of this world, and he is meant for destruction, for war, for bad, for sadness, for calamity. Nothing good comes from the devil. He hates peace so much that he would do anything; I mean absolutely all in his strength to eradicate peace. He is a creator of confusion.
We need God right now, to help us, to bring us His peace.
It’s so sad that the leaders overlook God in this current issues happening around. You can’t put God aside, and expect your situation to improve. It’s like filling up a basket with water.
What a depressing waste!
I repeat, forget about world peace! Come to God; ask Him to fill your life with His peace. Pray to Him, for you, for your loved ones, for your neighbours, for every area of your life. Don’t stress yourself about the issues going on right now, rather, be at Peace, do not be afraid, and do not panic, because with the Peace of God upon you, you have nothing to worry about.
