Organizing the Inside – Day 67 Finding Peace That Endures

27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  ~ John 14:27

Why do Christians have inner turmoil when Jesus left us His peace?
Why are some born again believers tormented by fear, when Jesus tells us not to fear?  Is it a lack of faith; an unwillingness to see with our spiritual eyes that God’s word supersedes human logic?  If you’re struggling to unlock what seems to be the mystery of peace and total abandonment of fear it’s likely you have not become one with the Word of God.  Being one with the Word means whatever the Word says, you say, think, believe and agree with. That’s simple right?

This is not an impossible task by any means.
You can overcome doubt and fear.  You can overcome the lack of peace that suddenly sneaks up when hard times come. Here’s the thing, Jesus wouldn’t tell you to do something if it wasn’t possible.  He wouldn’t say to you don’t let your heart be troubled if that was impossible.

Realize that the devil is defeated and Jesus is truly Lord.
Realize that because Christ is living on the inside of you, you have access to all the power needed to live a full and abundant life.  If you are worrying and peace seems like a distant memory don’t give up. If fear seems to overtake your thoughts and you’re struggling to break free, there is hope.

Seek God with your whole heart.  If you’re ever going to cross over from doubt to faith, from fear to peace you are going to have to do it in Him. Remember with God all things are possible, but apart from Him we can do nothing. In Mark 9 the disciples were trying to cast out demons and couldn’t.  Look at what Jesus told them… 29And he said unto them, “This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” (KJV) What kind was He referring to? Jesus was referring to this kind of faith. In order to have the faith to cast out the hard thing in your life you are going to have to call time out to fast and pray. Asks God to help you cross over; and let’s get on with fulfilling His plan for your life.
