The Blessing of Extraordinary Peace


We are getting close to the end of the year. In just a little while, we are going to enter 2017.

I wanted to share something with you related to the new year. And as I was thinking about it, the topic of peace came to my mind.

The fact is, we who live in Christ have a great blessing. The blessing is God’s extraordinary peace in our hearts. It’s the kind of peace that we can’t understand. It’s beyond understanding. This is what the Bible says about it:

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Php 4:7)

You can’t find this peace anywhere else. You can only find this peace in Christ.

My prayer for you is that this peace of God will guard your heart and mind as you enter the new year. I also pray that it will guard the hearts and minds of your loved ones.

Here is my closing verse for you:

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all. (2Th 3:16)

I wish you a blessed 2017. Happy New Year!
