Believe me, nothing is better than His peace. John 14:27 and it is a gift. He has dealt with me about peace for a long time now, years. It is a quiet confidence in Him that no matter what is going around you, His peace is in you and you must rely on it and receive it.
I was taken back to Jesus telling His disciples as He sent them out to speak peace to the house that received them, and if so, the peace remained on the house and if not to shake the dust from their feet and move on. I never applied that to people but it in true of us as we are His temple with the Spirit in us, so we need to speak peace, much like the Hebrew greeting, But more than hello or goodbye or even peace, but ” how is your peace? “.
How often do we read ” Peace be unto you. “? There is a reason for speaking peace, I know He has had me to both speak it and shout it in prayer. Peace is powerful. His gospel is good news and peace, a pure peace from the Prince of Peace, Himself. He wore a crown of thorns for me to wear His crown of peace, can you even fathom that kind of love?
So let’s look at the word and not only read, but write, study, meditate on and memorize some peace verses.
