God’s peace in you is infinitely greater than the chaos around you. Don’t let anyone’s negativity bully you into putting up walls to protect yourself. Never let someone else’s insecurity drain your intimacy with God.
Even if someone—or everyone—around you is in an angry, overbearing state, when you’re aware of what God is saying and doing, you’re the most powerful person in the room. Your overflowing peace, joy, kindness, hope, wisdom, and grace can change the atmosphere, and transform the hardest heart.
“Don’t be anxious and afraid. The world may abandon you, but I never will. In fact, I’m imparting my peace to you, so you’ll always be aware of my presence” (John 14:27).
