God’s children are given His peace to lead us on a daily basis. But when we go through intense and bitter experiences and situations, and as we are not able to lay hold of His peace, God comes again and again to reassure us of His peace. He watches over our hearts always and when we lack the ability to exercise our faith, He comes to strengthen us further. His peace comes to us through His reassuring presence, promises and power through the Holy Spirit. When we lack such peace and trust because of our weak mind or fierce circumstances, and when doubt and confusion creep into our thinking, He doesn’t reprimand us or find fault with us. When Peter lacked such faith, the Lord held him by his hand and strengthened him. When the sisters of Bethany were broken down because of bereavement, He went to them to strengthen them through His presence and the demonstration of His power. When Elijah was depressed and desperate, He commissioned an angel to go to him to find him in his valley experience to strengthen him and to re-commission him for greater ministries. His empowering and enabling in times of difficulty is not only for us to get out of our discouragement, but for us to continue in His ministry. When God gives us such peace, it is meant to also strengthen others who need this peace. The disciples were fearful of the Jews and the Roman soldiers who were falsely accusing them of taking away the body of our Lord. Their hearts were broken because of the departure of their Lord and also because of attack from the outside. Our Lord knew that what they needed was peace to face the situation. He came again to them even though He came to them earlier to give them His peace. His peace came to them in the very person of the resurrected Prince of Peace. When they saw Him, floodgates of peace filled them and their hearts overflowed with His joy. Their fears took flight and their hearts were filled with courage, strength and peace. Whenever we lack peace, this Lord comes to us again and again, to reassure and fill us with His love.
