THE PEACE OF GOD
Due to the pressures of daily living, a sense of peace and relaxation seem to be at the forefront of things that people want from "meditation".
Born-again Believers know they have peace with God through Christ. With their deep knowledge of being reconciled to, and one with, God the Holy Spirit brings to Believers a mighty peace.
Nevertheless, there are times when certain circumstances tend to disturb them. At these times there is the peace of God. And we can receive it.
It may, but does not necessarily, come from meditation. Jesus said to disciples:
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid," John 14'27.
And for the Believer's part Paul says by the Holy Spirit:
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God ..."
"... the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus," Philippians 4'6-7.
Therefore, "... let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful," Colossians 3'15.
And what's more:
Our Father "... gives grace to the humble.
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God,
that He may exalt you in due time,
casting all your care upon Him,
for He cares for you," 1 Peter 5'5-7.
