It is vital in the days we live in to learn how to protect your peace. Your peace was purchased at the cross.
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him. And by His stripes, we are healed. Isaiah 53:3
This powerful scripture reminds us of the price Jesus paid on the cross for our salvation, healing, and peace.
So often, the focus of this scripture is placed on salvation and healing, and rightly so. But our peace also was purchased on the cross and sometimes we overlook this important revelation.
Do you live with the same level of conviction that your peace was paid for at the cross? Just as your sins were paid for, and just as your healing was paid for, your peace was also paid for by the death of Jesus Christ.
It is crucial to remember that there is a battle for your peace. The enemy will do everything he can to steal your peace, knowing the worth God has placed on it. The peace that Jesus gives us is not like the peace the world gives (John 14:27). It is a peace that surpasses all understanding, a peace that can only come from Him (Philippians 4:7).
Spending time in the Word of God and in His Presence regularly will build our awareness of the peace He has already given to us. Aligning your thoughts with His will clears out the chaos and confusion that so often surrounds us.
You must remember that you are the steward of peace in your life and you must actively protect your peace. You may not be able to control the chaos around you, but you can control your inner world through the fruits of the Spirit and the help of the Holy Spirit. You can take back your peace, which you may have unknowingly given away.
Jesus said in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” This scripture shows that God’s peace will always triumph over the world’s version of peace because it is Himself, the Prince of Peace.
Continue to pursue peace just as you would pursue healing.
