THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Clyde was ill and couldn’t seem to “shake it.”
His wife drove him to the doctor’s office.
When the doctor came into the little room to see Clyde, he was amazed at how brown-skinned he was.
Doctor, “Clyde why are you so brown?”
Clyde, “Well, my wife and I have an agreement. When we argue, one of us goes for a long walk.”
Doctor, “But your wife is quite pale, and you are so brown.”
Clyde, “I’ve found that when I’m the one who takes the walk, we have peace.”
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
When facing difficult circumstances, most people try to find peace within themselves.
Yet true peace cannot be found in self, for self cannot control all circumstance.
True peace comes from having “the peace of God” within ourselves.
True peace is beyond our comprehension, yet it is there when we know Christ.
For true peace “passeth all understanding.”
True peace fills our soul with the realization that God is in control.
And, true peace will “KEEP your hearts and minds THROUGH Christ Jesus.”
True peace cannot be found in circumstances, but is found in having a genuine relationship with Christ.
True peace is not found by searching,
it is found by praying!
When life gets you “down,” you’re in the perfect position to surrender all to Christ.
THAT’s when we find “the peace of God!”
