God: has given it to us…
John 14:27 (KJV) “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
In the world we are living today, it is difficult not to go through the day without carrying the load from someone into a part of your life; many of us struggle to deal with issues in our own lives and the fight becomes more intense when we take up issues belonging to others.
It isn’t wrong to aide others, but at the same time you want to make sure that the assistance you are offering will help the situation instead of making it worse and push you into a dark place yourself.
One thing we can stand upon is the grace of God and the promise from His Son; Jesus made it clear that he was leaving us with the gift of peace and this gift will do the job of alleviating fear and worries in our lives.
If we are determined to be a comfort to those in need; spread the gift of peace. It comes from God, you bet it is all that and more to our souls.
