“Peace (peace in hebrew=shalom: completeness, soundness, welfare, peace) I leave with you, my peace (completeness, soundness, welfare, peace) I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”  
John 14:27

Recently my life had a few major changes.  Satan was busy masterminding but he is not the winner! 

Jesus gave His peace which is much more than what we think peace is.  It’s not a peace like the world gives, that depends on relaxing music, counseling, drugs, tranquilizers, aromatherapy, binging on food or alcohol, etc.  His peace is SO much better!

When the challenges of life come, what can be done?  When stress and anxiety creep in?  When we feel overwhelmed?  We take our blood-bought peace, our completeness, soundness and welfare that Jesus paid for!  He does not want our heart to be troubled or afraid!   

“Then you will experience God's peace(completeness, soundness, welfare, peace), which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”  (Phil 4:7) 
Not only that, but He gives us the Holy Spirit who is our Helper!  “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” (John 14:26)

Thank You, Lord, for your Shalom peace!  Thank you Holy Spirit for your help. Thank you that your peace is a guard for our hearts and minds!  Thank you for completeness, soundness, and welfare!!  Praise The Lord!
Throw the challenges into His hands.  He does not want us to “handle them”!   

Enjoy His peace,
Lori Rola
