I AM THE LORD OF PEACE, THE ONLY SOURCE OF GENUINE PEACE.
I give you this gift, not as something separate from Myself, but as part of My core essence.
As you open your heart and mind to Me, My Peace is present—readily available to you.
However, this glorious gift is not something you can grab on the run.
You need to take time to focus on Me and enjoy My Presence, putting everything else aside for a while.
You live in the midst of intense spiritual battles, and My Peace is an essential part of the armor I provide for you.
To stay on your feet during combat, you need to wear sturdy warfare boots—the Gospel of Peace.
This good news assures you that I love you and I am for you: I am on your side.
Many of My followers forfeit Peace because they view Me as someone who is constantly scrutinizing their lives—peering at them through critical eyes.
On the contrary, I gaze at you through eyes of perfect Love.
When you are feeling like a failure, talk to yourself and tell yourself the truth: My death on the cross covers all your sins.
I love you regardless of how well or poorly you perform—simply because you are Mine.
From "Jesus Lives " by Sarah Young
"Rejoice in this Gospel- Peace; it is yours to enjoy at all times and in every way.
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you."
2 THESSALONIANS 3:16
"And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace . . . "
EPHESIANS 6:15 AMP
"What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" ROMANS 8:31 NKJV
