When Jesus was getting ready to leave this world, he promised to provide a wonderful gift.
The gift of his peace.
It’s unlike any other.
And provided through the presence of the Holy Spirit.
In this context, Jesus seems to imply that worry is a choice.
That we can choose not to “let” our hearts be troubled.
That we can choose not to be afraid.
But such dynamics are only possible as we reach out to him.
Asking for his help.
And then embracing the peace he wants to provide.
John 14: 27 (NIV)
