One of the most heavenly aspects of experiencing God is His abounding peace. Peace is not something this world can offer us. This world is run on chaos, stress, confusion, striving, and frivolous pursuits with no satisfaction.

If you’re ready to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ—the Prince of Peace—then you can definitely find peace in your life. Peace is actually part of the inheritance package that comes to us when we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior. John 14:27 says, Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. At one time, I didn’t know what peace felt like. But His Word has led me to experience a lot more peace and joy in my life...and I’d love for you to experience it too.
