Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Jesus’ words to us can bring us the peace we seek as we drift off to sleep. His peace is not like the peace the world gives – a peace that promises, but does not deliver. The peace of God is real and comforting – and lasting.
At bedtime, we can meditate on the peace he alone can give; and if we don’t sense that peace, we might ask, “Am I trusting in the fleeting, temporary peace of this world? Or am I trusting God?”
