Worship Wednesday: Peace

This is Peace by Sherri Youngward, a YouTube video.

How ironic that this is the song I chose for today...Peace...when journalists and an interviewee were shot live on air.  "Where is the peace?" someone may ask.

Yes, it's hard to understand peace when what you see in the world around you is chaos.  

Jesus said in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."  (read the entire chapter to get full context).

The peace that Jesus gives us is supernatural.  It is beyond human understanding (Philippians 4:7).  In this world there will be trouble (John 16:33)...murder, sickness, strife...BUT you can have a divine, supernatural peace within when you rely on Jesus Christ.
