I RELAX IN THE PEACE OF GOD
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
We often wonder if peace really exists anywhere. In a world distraught with so much confusion and chaos we deeply need an inner, abiding sense of calm and tranquility. Peace of mind really is what the world is searching after because without it we have only a sense of insecurity and loneliness. Without peace, deep and abiding, there can be no happiness nor contentment, no sense of security, no confidence. And yet, Jesus said, “My peace I give unto you,” and the Apostle said, “The peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” This means that in such degree as we attain peace, Christ, or the Anointed of Heaven, the true and Divine Sonship, makes itself known to us. For He is not met through confusion, but only when the mind is tranquil, and, like an unruffled body of water, reflects the Divine images of peace and perfection.
Today I enter into the Peace of God. My mind is stilled from all confusion, and I feel a deep and abiding inward poise. Christ, the Son of the living God, the One Son begotten of the only God, is real to me. I keep my mind stayed on this Divine inner Presence, and, letting every thought of discord slip away, I meet the Reality of myself, the eternal and changeless Truth about me, which is that I am the Son of God, I am one with Him forever more, within me, there is a voice that says: “Peace. Be still and know that I am his God; God in me, around me and through me, the Divine Son forever incarnated and forever kept in the bosom of the Father.” I glorify the name of this Son; I exalt his presence. “I am that which thou art; thou art that which I am.” And that which I am, and that which Thou art, is one and the same.
