What produces the greatest peace in your soul?

I tend to allow my greatest source be the CONFIDENCE in the things on this earth. When this is my mindset—my peace is very shallow and easily removed. But when I’m purposely living in God’s presence, HE gives me HIS confidence; and—that confidence produces extraordinary and unshakeable peace. God’s presence and exceptional ability to provide for my every need and to surround me with His love, power, and wisdom gives me peace to sleep soundly and the confidence to walk boldly.

God is so confident in HIMSELF that He promised us ultimate peace.  

Jesus said:

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Jesus distinguishes HIS peace from the world’s peace. His peace isn’t based on things that pass away and change—but rather upon Himself, our unchanging, all-powerful, all-loving and omniscient God! That’s why, He COMMANDS us:

“Don’t be troubled or afraid!”

God commands us to rest our confidence in His power. When we obey this command thennothing can take away our peace.

Wow—how often do I break this commandment and then rob myself of peace?

Every time I worry—right?! When I worry, I’m placing my confidence in something less than God because I don’t trust Him to handle it. Because worry is sin, it pushes me away from God. Trusting God builds our confidence in His power—AND—gives peace. We learnt to trust God when we know Him. We know God best when we completely surrendered to Him—over and over—EVERY day!

God’s peace is one of His precious promises to us.
