Today’s writer was my friend before before (He’d kill me if he saw this :p). We started talking mainly because he’s a reader and he’s the one that initiated me into the British Literature readers!!! I chose him to talk about peace for various reasons but basically because he’s one person that has connected with his inner man. No matter what, he has peace even when he’s not sure what happens next. Before I go on and on, I want to introduce you to a very good friend of mine and an amazing artist Odudu Abasi-Essien,
P.S. You might want to get a dictionary just in case 🙂
Peace that surpasses all understanding. Peace is usually seen as a state of quiet and calm, a realm of sweet tranquility void of unwelcome chaos. That in a sense is true, the only issue with such a definition is the variable factor of environmental change. With it, peace depends on the situation and environment one is positioned. To simplify it, one would say such peace is the absence of war. But on a more realistic, if we were to accept this definition in a world falling apart, we would hardly ever experience it. However we have an infinite reserve of peace we can call on whenever we need it. Jesus said, ‘My peace I give unto you’. Here, we see that peace can be carried with you and its not something controlled by environment.
Jesus is also seen as the Prince of Salem (peace). This means that He is the custodian and governor of peace and He has made it available to you. Peace is carried inside you. Why? Because you have God Almighty inside you, inside your spirit.
Peace is also a fruit of the Holy Spirit. One of the fruit that forms the image or character of Christ. We see how Jesus, in the storm battered boat, slept like a child while His disciples almost tore off their beards. Jesus woke and said sternly, ‘Peace be still’. We can see the power Christ has over peace enough to command it to manifest in a geographical location. This power has been given to us as the power to become sons of God. Sons imitate their fathers. We imitate God.
Therefore peace is the mobile quality of calm, tranquility, assurance and trust in God’s love and ability to deliver. It takes the weights off you and gives you rest.
I sign out with the peace sign 😀 Basically people. peace is a benefit from a decision not a feeling or mood. Make that decision to let Christ live in you and rule your world and you’ve made the decision to allow peace abide.
Bye bye for now 🙂
