Peace, peace to you, and peace to him who helps you, for your God helps you. - 1 Chronicles 12:18 HCSB
Through His Son, God offers a "peace that passes all understanding," but He does not force His peace upon us. God's peace is a blessing that we, as children of a loving Father, must claim for ourselves... but sometimes we are slow to do so. Why? Because we are fallible human beings with limited understanding and limited faith.
Have you found the lasting peace that can be yours through Jesus, or are you still rushing after the illusion of "peace and happiness" that the world promises but cannot deliver?
Today, as a gift to yourself, to your family, and to your friends, claim the inner peace that is your spiritual birthright: the peace of Jesus Christ.
Where the soul is full of peace and joy, outward surroundings and circumstances are of comparatively little account.
