Peaceful on purpose

Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you..-John 14:27.

When Jesus left this earth, He said that He was leaving His peace with us. Now the decision we have to make is, are we going to choose to live in the peace He has given us?

Of course, the devil works overtime to try to get you upset. Why? Because he knows that if you don’t remain peaceful, you can’t hear from God.

If you watch your life, you’ll be amazed how many times a week Satan launches an attack against you for the sole purpose of stealing your peace. When I finally saw that, God said to me in my spirit, Joyce, if the devil wants your peace that badly, then there must be something pretty powerful about being peaceful.

It’s true! So now when the devil tries to steal my peace, I enjoy holding on to it, knowing that I’m getting the better of him. That doesn’t mean I don’t feel upset, but I can do something positive about it–I can control myself and be peaceful on purpose.

Being peaceful on purpose is something we have to do for ourselves. Will you choose God’s peace?
