Peace - Be Still

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) 

This is one of my favourite verses of Scripture. I have clung to this verse on many occasions and it has been a great source of peace and comfort.  I must admit that it was only not too long ago that I came to fully realise what "I do not give to you as the world gives..."   

Often, we have the idea that we can only rest and have peace of mind when things are going well, but seriously, how often is that? How realistic is it for there to be no conflict in the world, no issues to deal with? Indeed, the world's idea of peace is actually quite unattainable and untenable.

Thankfully, Christ has given us something better. Even in the midst of trouble, we can have peace in Him. Even when the waves threaten to engulf us, we can rise above the storm. 

One of the most enduring images is Christ commanding the elements in the midst of the storm. Peace - Be still. 

The Peace pendant is inspired from the amazing and true story found in Mark 4, when Jesus calms the storm. 

35That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "Let us go over to the other side." 36Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?" 39He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 

We are told in I Peter 5:7 to cast our care upon Him, for He cares for us. Being quite the  natural worrier does not make it easy for me to do that, but if we rest upon Christ's finished work at the Cross, we know that we can and we should do just that. That is something that I keep reminding myself to do.

Stand Still And See The Salvation Of The Lord. 2 Chronicles 20:17.
