He gives peace.

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters." Psalm 23:1-2

Peace is one of the greatest gifts given to us!

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

Do you know the difference between the world's peace and God's peace?

The world's is that if green pastures and still waters.

The world's peace is untroubled existence, and being well in body and spirit.

In Jesus there is no condemnation.

It is the peace that comes as we are in the midst of a trial or war.

This peace comes to those who are willing to fight for our Lord's cause.

Stephen had peace before the Sanhedrin and under the stones that crushed him.

God wants us to praise Him for those green pastures and those quiet episodes, those quiet walks beside the still waters.

Even through our trials and troubles God has not abandoned us!

He is right there beside us!

It is through our trials and troubles that we become stronger through Him!

God's goodness to us is beyond what natural man can do or give.

We should not just take part of our testimony, but us all of it.

The natural man only shows His goods and that He lives upto His obligations.

To the natural man if we are in trouble, or something bad happens then God has failed.

Wrong!

God never fails!

Today we think that green pastures and still waters are encased in the terms of peace of mind, security, being top at all you do, having a perfect figure,and there are others.

It is accepted universally and is wrong.

It is about God!

What can He do through you?

God doesn't have a duty to give you happiness and peace.

He wants to, because He loves you!

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7

"For to be carnally minded is death: but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." Romans 8:6
