Do wear the garment of PEACE, it accentuates your style…….
Definition – Peace - a quiet and calm state of mind
“When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:7
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
What a needful garment to have in a day of much turbulence and chaos. Jesus promised us peace and we can have it, only if we’re truly connected with God. Isaiah wrote; “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You (Isaiah 26:3).” Connection matters! An attributive name for God is Jehovah-Shalom, the God of peace. Therefore, our minds must be connected with Peace in order to have it and operate in it. During our most difficult times, we can have God’s peace guarding our hearts and mind.
The Apostle Paul tells the Church at Philippi about the peace that surpasses all understanding. “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).” In other words, our troubles will not drown out our countenance, but our countenance will be that of peace. It leaves people wandering; who is this God?
We are God’s ambassadors in earth, created in the image in God who is Peace. It is our duty to seek Peace and allow it to rule our heart during the trials and tribulations of this world. They will come, but cannot be compare to the glory that will be reveal in us. “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us (Romans 8:18).”
Wear the garment of peace and allow the god of Peace to rule your heart during these very turbulent times. We cannot engage in every battle, but can peaceful during the battles around us. Wear this garment and let it accentuate (to give emphasis or prominence) who you are in Christ!
