"Seek God: NOT Things! Session 12 Part 2 - B-1-4. “The Giver of Peace” – Part 2

II. Main Scriptures: Matthew 6:25-34; John 14:1,27; Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Peter 5:6-7:

B-1-5. “The Giver of Peace” – Part 2 – Session 11 Not letting our hearts be troubled, is so important, that Jesus said it again in verse 27 of John 14 – then Jesus tells us that He has given us His peace, to calm us. This is what Jesus said:

“Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]”

You see, Jesus’ peace WILL calm us in EVERY circumstance, giving us courage and strength for EVERY challenge! Let’s look at Philippians 4:7 in the Amplified Bible version (AMP):

“And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].”

Remember what John MacArthur said in his teaching, “The Gift of Peace, ”  about the word “guard” meaning in Philippians 4:7 (John is using NASB95 version):

“The word for "guard" in Philippians 4:7 is not the word that means to "watch," or "keep imprisoned." It is a word that is often used in a military sense, meaning "to stand at a post and guard against the aggression of an enemy." When peace is on guard, the Christian has entered an impregnable citadel from which nothing can dislodge him. The name of the fortress is Christ, and the guard is peace. The peace of God stands guard and keeps worry from the corroding our hearts, and unworthy thoughts from tearing up our minds.”
