Each piece of God’s armor allows for Peace in our lives.
When we receive God’s peace after praying and talking to God, it is not because we know that everything will be ok. It is because through Christ we are reassured that we will be ok in his hands. The world can be shaken to it’s core, the people can panic and hide, but the Lord will never forsake his children. His love is carved on us like a permanent engraving. His peace cannot be comprehended by us. It is not like any feeling the world has because it is a heavenly gift. John 14:27, “I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart.

When we realize that our lives are an offering of what we can bring to this world, we realize there are no rules in living for God. Sacrifices yes, rules no. I mean, Jesus died for us, he’s not asking for us to sign a contract in order to follow him, he’s just loving on us. We should be the ones pursuing to have a membership with him. Have you ever thought about what the difference is between a contract and a membership? Continue reading “God the father, not the boss.”
