Peace. Be Still.

“Peace. Be still” (Mark 4:39).

“Peace.”

Say it out loud over your relationships. Speak it out over all your circumstances. Say it again, not as a wish or a plea, but as a declaration of the reality created by God’s presence in your life.

Peace isn’t a religious placebo, it’s genuine joy, confidence, and rest in God. Peace is a fruit of his Spirit, a fruit which renews an exhausted mind, and restores a broken heart.

Peace is a place of union with Jesus, a living reality in which he empowers you to grow into all he says you can be, equips you to overcome storms and difficulties in your path, and encourages you to transform lives along the way.

Say it once more: “Peace.” It’s who you are, and how you get to live.

“Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he’s done. Then you will experience his peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

“I’m imparting my peace to you as a gift. It’s not the fragile peace of this world, but a peace which will make you so whole, and so confident in me, you won’t yield your heart to fear again” (John 14:27, paraphrase).
