The more we make Jesus the Lord over our circumstances, desires, emotions, and decisions, the more we will find peace that is absolutely multiplied back to us.
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
(2 Peter 1:2)
When I was 21 years old, my father had a nervous breakdown. His personality changed tremendously. He would drink heavily and say cruel, terrible things.

My brother and I were miserable; but my Spirit-filled mother experienced a tremendous peace. No one could understand it.

When my father turned himself in to a psychiatric center, the doctors tried to blame his sickness on my mother's religion.

But she said, "No, my 'religion' didn't bring him here; but my 'religion' will take him out." And it did—her peace and faith in Jesus Christ finally rescued my father.

We live in a day when everyone wants peace. They want it so desperately, yet very few have real peace.

The reason there is so little peace is because there is so little knowledge of God and so few people who have really made Jesus the Lord of their lives.

The more we make Jesus the Lord over our circumstances, desires, emotions, and decisions, the more we will find peace that is absolutely multiplied back to us.

We need to saturate ourselves with the peace of God's Word. 1

Make Your Day Count
Meditate on the fact that Jesus is your Prince of Peace today. The more you know Him in that way, the more peace will be multiplied to you.
