Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled – Daily Inspiration, September 13, 2012

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

Our Savior is never far from us. While we cannot avoid life’s trials, we can take comfort in knowing Someone is there to Guide us through difficult times. As the notes on John 14:27 in the Life Application Study Bible (Tyndale House Publishers Inc and Zondervan, 2005) counsel: “Sin, fear, uncertainty, doubt and numerous other forces are at war within us. The peace of God moves into our hearts and lives to restrain these hostile forces and offer comfort in place of conflict. Jesus says He will give us that peace if we are willing to accept it from Him. If your life is full of stress, allow the Holy Spirit to fill you with Christ’s peace.”

May the Lord’s peace be with you today.
