The Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding

Peace in crisis

Ted, one of the elders in our church, used to be a police officer. One day after responding to a report of violence, he said the situation turned life-threatening. A man had stabbed someone and then menacingly turned the blade towards Ted. A fellow officer had taken position and fired his weapon at the assailant as he attacked Ted. The criminal was subdued, but Ted was shot in the crossfire. As he was driven by ambulance to the hospital, he felt deep waves of peace flowing over his soul from the Holy Spirit. Ted felt so tranquil that he was able to offer words of comfort to the law enforcement officer who was emotionally distraught over the crisis.

The Lord Jesus Christ promised us peace in crisis. Just hours before His own crucifixion, Christ comforted His disciples with these words: “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

What is your worst fear? If you should have to face it, Christ will be there with you. Trusting Him through prayer makes available “The Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,” and it “will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”

The secret of peace is to give every anxious care to God in prayers!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

  4. I had a “Officer Ted” experience a year ago when I was involved in a motorcycle accident. God has used that traumatic event to allow me to reach and minister to people I normally could not. I was in the hospital for 5 weeks, went through6 surgeries and ultimately lost my left leg just above the knee. The Holy Spirit has worked mightily through this situation, beyond my wildest dreams. I can’t take credit for anything God has done. He has not only spared me but blessed me in the midst of the storm. My Pastor has given me the opportunity to speak to our congregation this next Wed night to share what God has done in me and through me this past year. I am honored and humbled to call myself a follower of Christ.
    Thanks for your blog.
