Peace, I Give You

Quote

Once you experience peace, you come to understand that it rules your heart, not from a carnal standpoint, but absent of it.

Let Christ reign in our hearts and give us peace that is greater than our understanding. I’m certain this peace differs, somewhat, for each of us. When I first felt this peace it was quiet, felt like warm radiant sunlight, and time ceased. It was truly greater than my understanding. It took weeks to process it and try to describe it. The love and light of Christ enveloped me. All earthly thoughts ceased to exist. I wish that peace on all people. It radiated atonement, not asked for, not desired, just gifted. As one author said, “it restrains the turbulent passions of anger, wrath, and revenge, always undue hearts, and moderates the spirits.”*

Another author wrote, “If  we know Christ’s peace, we know that God accepts us by His grace. This knowledge gives us a disposition of peace. The more peace we have, the greater our gratitude for what Christ has done for us, and the greater the harmony of our soul. The peace of Christ steels our hearts against fret fullness and anxiety.” 

Once you experience the peace, you come to understand that it rules your heart, not from a carnal standpoint, but absent of it. Philippians 4:7, NIV reveals, “the peace of God (Christ), which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 55:12 NIV declares, “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace.”
