Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
In John 14, Jesus prepares His disciples for a seemingly uncertain future without Him. They were to witness His suffering and death. And even though His resurrection will restore all hope, they would watch Him ascend and leave them seemingly orphaned once more. As with the disciples, we learn that the Christian is never alone.
The Spirit of Truth, our Comforter, guarantees our heavenly inheritance and abides with us to enlighten and give us peace. And the peace Jesus gives is unlike no other. It is a supernatural kind of peace that this world is unable to give.
In the midst of fears and troubles, God’s peace keeps you resolute. When goals and relationships fail, God’s peace restores your confidence. The peace Christ gives enables you to firmly trust in God's promises because it is trustworthy and permanent. And it is rooted in the unchanging, all-powerful, and all-sufficient nature of God Himself.
