Meditation on John 14:27

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)

A week ago, I was retching with the worst dry heaves I've ever had. They just would not stop. My body seemed at war with me.

I wished my body would find peace with itself, but it took from Saturday night to Monday morning before I finally experienced that peace.

Thank God for the peace of Christ, the peace that neither war, disease, trouble nor death itself can touch. Thank God for a peace rooted in the faithfulness of Christ and not the vagaries of my experience or feelings.
