I Give You My Peace

total word count: 323

The Bible says “Ask and you shall receive.” I’ve been asking and God’s been giving me some interesting revelation lately. A few nights ago I had a dream featuring a man who was filled with peace. He happened to be around people who didn’t have much peace. In the dream, the emotions of people were symbolized by boards covered with fabric.

The peace-filled man was able to give others the peace that he had. When he wanted to do this, he pulled out a spray can and sprayed over the fabric of someone’s emotional board. I don’t know what was in the spray can, but it neutralized their fear, anxiety, etc. Then he cut a piece of fabric from his own emotional board and pasted it on the board of the other person and in doing so—he gave them his peace.

Interesting concept, wouldn’t you agree?

One of the ramifications of seeing Jesus as a flesh and blood role model (and not merely as our savior) is that we must eventually get around to doing the things he did. We must live the way He lived. It’s the practical side of being his disciple.

Jesus said to his disciples, “I give you my peace.”

He transferred His own peace to those who didn’t have it. And we must learn how to do this. In addition to casting out demons, healing the sick, raising the dead, working miracles, and proclaiming the kingdom, we ought to learn how to give people the peace that we have—to transfer the peace of God to those who are filled with fear, anxiety and worry.

Of course, a prerequisite is having that peace in the first place. We can’t give to others what we don’t have. So if you’re lacking the peace of God, you might ask Him to give you His peace. Which brings us back to the beginning of the article. Ask and you shall receive.
