Jesus never promised the world would be peaceful. In fact, He warned it would bring trouble.

But, He said, for us to take heart, because He had overcome the world.

Satan would say, “Big deal. He got up over the storm. Too bad He didn’t take you with Him. Guess you will have to wait until He comes back. But in the meantime, I’m here!”

However, Jesus defeated satan long ago. It was really no contest. And Jesus continues to overcome the world from inside each one of us. He has given us the lasting Gift of Peace. He is with us always.

Take a few moments and receive the Gift He is giving you. Receive His Peace and then pass it on!

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give 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

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33

Here is the link to the beautiful song written by Jill Jackson and Sy Miller.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.

Let There Be Peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.

Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.

With ev’ry step I take
Let this be my solemn vow,

To take each moment and live
Each moment in peace eternally.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me!
