Peace a Protective Force
Why is it important that you stay in God’s peace in the midst of a storm? Because it puts you in charge of the situation. Colossians 3:15 tells us that peace rules–it is a garrison and guard. It’s like a bodyguard. God has given you peace as part of your spiritual armor. When Jesus said He gave you His peace, it was not just a comforting feeling. It is a defensive force designed to guard your heart and mind against troubling thoughts or feelings. This is why Satan works overtime to keep you in a state of agitation and fear. The good news is that you don’t have to live another day with worry and anxiety! You can learn to walk in peace despite the circumstances and trust God for the outcome.
