The Peace of God

August 28 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers

I was witnessing to a man who was standing in front of his house. I couldn’t get very far with him as he was seemingly satisfied with his life. He said, “Mister, I’ve got a good income. You see that house? I own that house. It’s paid for. You see that car? I own it, it’s paid for. My wife is in that house. She loves me.”

I said, “Sir, alright. I want to ask you a question. Will you be absolutely honest with me? Do you have peace in your heart?” His chin started to quiver, his eyes brimmed with tears. He said, “No, I don’t have peace in heart, how did you know?”

I said, “Because the Bible says, ‘There is no peace sayeth my God to the wicked.’ These things cannot fill the longing of your heart. You need Jesus. If you have Jesus, you have the peace of God that passeth understanding. If you have that, you are a rich person.”

Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
