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.
(John 14:27)
Some people have the idea that if you live by faith, you can float through life without any problems. Forget it. It will never happen.

Just look at Jesus. If anyone should have been able to float through life, it was Jesus. He had perfect faith. Yet, He had the toughest time of any man who ever walked on earth. He was persecuted, criticized and plotted against. He was tempted with every sin mankind has ever known. Yet He resisted it all.

If you think that's easy, think again. There's nothing tougher than feeling the pressure of sin or sickness, and then standing, refusing to let it take over. There's nothing tougher than standing up at those times and saying, "No! I won't receive this sickness on my body. I won't give in to this circumstance! I've been set free by the blood of Jesus, and I will live free by faith in Him!"

If you want to see just how much pressure such a stand of faith can bring, look at Jesus before He went to the cross. The pressure of the temptation He faced put such a strain on His physical body that drops of blood poured through His skin like perspiration. Even then, sin could not conquer Him.

None of us will ever face that much trouble. We'll never have to stand against that much pressure. Yet we have available to us the same power and peace that took Him not just through the pressure, but through the whipping, the mocking and the Crucifixion. We have the peace that took Him all the way through!

"Peace l leave with you," He said. "My peace l give you...Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

He's given you His peace...far more than you'll ever need; So, don't rehearse the problem over and over in your mind. Instead, receive the peace He provided for a day like today.
