John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

We have all heard of people inheriting vast estates and huge amounts of money. When I was a boy there was a man in our church by the name of Jack. He always said that his dad left him a packet of seeds and a bag of fertilizer with the instructions to grow his inheritance himself. Hmm! Now that advice has a profound ring of wisdom to it!

Jesus has left each of His children with a similar inheritance. He has not chosen to take us out of the world — that would remove the testimony. Nor has He given us super human qualities. But, He has given us His Spirit of peace.

The time we need peace the most is during the storms of life. It is also when we go through those storms with His quality of peace that we show the world our greatest testimony. God does not give peace in a worldly sense. His peace transcends the idea of keeping us away from the storms of life; it gives peace in the middle of the storm.

Are you experiencing the peace that only Christ can provide? It is ours for the taking as we open our spiritual eyes and discover the promises that God has given to those who believe on Him. Claim your inheritance!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
