John 14:27 “Shalom I leave you, My shalom I give to you; but not as the world gives! Do not let your heart be troubled or afraid. source
Two particular words: My and Let
HIS peace He gives us.
That IS His gift to us.
That’s our part.
We choose BECAUSE of His peace to LET NOT our hearts be troubled or afraid.
SO! When I am troubled and afraid I KNOW I have forsaken His peace and because of that I have let myself get all in a tizzy.
