In John 14:27, Jesus tells us, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” Jesus, the Prince of Peace, offers us a unique promise that undermines every concern. He gives us the assurance of His constant Presence, which in itself is enough to calm our fears. In other words, we never have a reason to worry!
As the Son of God, Jesus foreknew every hardship each of His children would endure. He saw the rejection we would face and the pain we would experience, yet his command remains: “Do not let your heart be troubled…”
Jesus prioritizes peace. Having full knowledge of all of our circumstances, Jesus comforts us with the guarantee of His abiding Spirit. This Spirit supplies us with strength, encouragement and the ability to withstand all trials. It is Christ in us that allows us to persevere through the most difficult situations!
Whether it’s balancing a busy a schedule or struggling through a trying season, Jesus promises to equip us with the energy and faith we need. When we follow Him, we have the freedom to dismiss anxieties by prayerfully believing in His control over our lives. What joy we have in knowing our Savior takes care of us!
