“God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.” -C. S. Lewis
Jesus told his disciples that he’d soon go to His Father, but that they should not fret. He’d give them a peace of mind and heart that comes with the gift of Holy Spirit. It’s a peace that the world cannot give (John 14:27). We can look to find peace in many other places: job security, retirement plans, cars and homes, relationships, high-tech home security systems, and a multitude of other things. However, these things pale in comparison to the peace God can bring through the Holy Spirit. Ask God for this peace and watch as you tap into something that surpasses your own understanding.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7, NIV).
