Keeping Your Peace
John 14:27 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.
We will always have challenges through life and struggles that we face day by day but Jesus encourages us that He is always there with us.
Exodus 14:14 The Lord shall fight for you and you shall hold your peace.
One thing is do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace. Often times no matter how hard we try peace eludes us. The war in our minds rages on, and when you allow others to control your emotions ,your peace of mind becomes unstable. That is when we need to walk in the Power of the Holy Spirit , then we can experience the peace that is promised to us.
Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you.
When anxiety creeps into your life trust in the Lord and He will bless you with his peace. Don’t let your situation take over your thoughts and allow your feelings to control you , but look to God and His promised Word.

The enemy fights us every day through situations and the people we encounter. He also battles in our thoughts and feelings. The bible warns us about this
Isaiah 24:10 Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed. Says the Lord who has compassion on you.
God delights in his children and helps us maintain our peace for God’s love and peace are perfect.
