Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid (John 14:27).
God gives us choices and a most important one is whether or not we choose to trust Him. A troubled heart is a consequence of lack of trust. It’s a perfect description of the absence of inner peace. When my heart is uneasy, it can be traced back to relying on my own strength or reasoning without seeking God first.
Jesus left us with the gift of peace of mind and heart unlike any that we can acquire from any other source on earth. Choosing to trust Him, is putting our trust in the Prince of Peace, who’s waiting patiently for us to reach out to Him, to grab on to that lifeline, and give a sigh of relief from all anxiety.
Choose to trust and let not your heart be troubled.
