What if I could show you “The Way” to have Peace even in the darkest moments of your life? This Peace isn’t worked for, it’s not about your effort – it’s all about “the rivers” talked about in “LOVES Flow” the devotional from yesterday. If you need to go back and read it to grasp this devotional please feel free to do so.
“By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.” – John 7:39
When Jesus died on the cross And rose from the dead some Amazing things happened. Besides the fact that man was from that moment able to Freely be reunited and reconnected to The God Who Is Love, The Holy Spirit, “The Comforter” was given. This is another way that we know we Have to be “by Faith” and not “under the law.”
There is No comfort under the law! Only ego on a “good” day and depression and discouragement on a “bad” day.
But then came “The Comforter” – The Holy Spirit for Whom the task of given us comfort so that “the rivers” of “living water” could flow Freely through us. No condemnation, shame or guilt can hold someone who is Not under the law but under Grace And has “The Comforter” there to remind them of “His Great Love for us” which produces “Peace that passes All understanding” because it’s Not based on our performance but instead on His sacrifice for us.
“But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 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.” – John 14:26-27
