John 14:27 “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.”
The motto of the Apollo 11 flight was, “We come in peace for all mankind.” This motto was on the plaque which was deposited on the face of the moon.
The landing was on the Sea of Tranquility. Armstrong and Aldrin found a tranquil and peaceful scene on the moon. There had never been any humans there to disturb the peace.
That is not the case, in the world that we live in. The peace found in this world can be disturbed at any time. When our peace relies on the people in our lives, then it is sure to be in short supply.
However, there is a perfect peace that passes understanding. There is a peace that does not rely on people and is not as fickle as the circumstances around us, that change as fast as the weather.
Prayer is the doorway to having that perfect peace.
Philippians 4:6–7 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
When you cast your cares upon the Lord, who cares for you like no other, he takes your burden upon Himself. He offers a perfect peace that is beyond our understanding and protects our heart and mind.
As biblical men, it should be obvious to those around us, that our spirits are governed by that perfect peace, and an unspeakable joy, that no man can take away from us.
Today’s Biblical Manhood Principle: Perfect peace is available by prayer to the Prince of Peace, Jesus.
