Peace of Christ rule in your hearts!



Colossians 3:15”Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.”

I woke up early one morning and while I got ready for my quiet time with the Lord, I said “Lord, today I want to hear you speak first and I opened the Bible and started reading it, the above scripture touched my heart.” Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts! Which means every other thought should be put out and only peace should rule your heart.....observe the word rule.....which emphasizes that  you got to control & chase away those that destroys your peace! Now after such revelation, God doesn't need to speak any louder.  Anybody listening?


 
You must actually go through some turbulent waters, in order to understand this ‘perfect peace’! Friend, never consider me an epitome of faith or someone who is unshakeable, I am able to write on these subjects because I have been shaken many, many times but the good news is that God did not allow me to stay there, He picked me up and taught me lessons of faith.  I have also wondered, ‘why did God not save the time of all this anxiety, agony and angst and answer us swiftly?’ We would never learn to trust Him otherwise!


It was the first ‘three days retreat training camp’ that we were holding in a grand manner for which besides the main worship hall, we had to book dormitory for men and women, book food caterers, musicians and much, much more.  We were getting close to the meeting date, besides booking the hall, we had to arrange huge money to meet all these needs.  Nothing happened till the last day of our travel to the city; it was eerie! Now, in the midst of all this muddle, I was the main preacher and I had to get ready for the meetings and preach on ‘faith!’ Imagine! It is in this scenario we need ‘perfect peace’ to operate! Are you listening? Without running helter-skelter for money, nor hinting to others about the problem, keeping the mind stayed on God  to meet the needs is called perfect peace!  On the third day of the meeting, as we were about to say the closing prayer, an elderly man whom we knew earlier, came up to me on the stage and handed over a couple of offering covers and left. Miraculously we were able to pay every bill and walk out of the auditorium victoriously. Never ever be intimidated by turbulence!
