John 14:17

August 28, 2013

“Peace I leave with you; My [own]peace I now give and bequeath to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid – stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.” (The Amplified Bible)

I did a post several weeks ago on this verse.  The Lord has brought this verse back to me recently and He showed me something that stood out.  Notice the words in bold (“let” used twice, “allowing”, and “permit”) .  They talk about choice.  Jesus is saying we walk in His peace by choice.
