Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. ~ John 14:27
Jesus gave the apostles His peace before His ascension into heaven. He reminds us that eternal peace is with Him. This world may bring us peace, but it is the kind of peace that is only momentary.
Jesus also tells us not to be afraid. And we shouldn’t be. The peace of Christ will remain with us when our faith in the Lord remains. We shouldn’t lose hope. There will be peace if our hearts remain strong in faith.
Trials will always be there. And His peace will always be there, too, when our faith is strong.
Don’t give up.
