Crazy Peace. That's what someone I know who has been in a great battle for his life calls it. It's supernatural. It's inexplicable. It's beyond our understanding.
Walking beside us.
My sister was telling me about a book she just read by Carol Kent. Carol's son is a Christian who has been given a life sentence in prison. In spite of all their efforts to appeal, his sentence stands. My sister said it was a new perspective to her......
....how if in spite of prayer and standing for something, if deliverance never comes,
that God isn't necessarily concerned with solving all of our problems. It is more important to Him that we grow in Him, rather than that all our problems be solved.
It's scary. Unless you have Crazy Peace.
Here's our promise:
John 14:27 NIV
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.
Beyond our understanding. His Peace. Crazy Peace.
