Grace, Peace and Love are inexorably entertwined! October 20 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My wonderful child, whom I’m especially fond of,
I have already given you My peace. In this world, you will have trouble(s), but don’t let your heart be troubled, because I have overcome the world and already given you My peace!
My peace flows directly from My love. All good and perfect things come from Me via My love. Real, true peace is not possible apart from being rooted and grounded in My love!
Leaders of warring nations sign “Peace Accords,” but at best they put a temporary halt to hostilities. Just because you agree to stop fighting doesn’t mean that you have deep, abiding peace.
Peace is Jesus! Jesus is peace! He is the Prince of peace. He is the embodiment of peace. True peace is Jesus. Therefore, the experience of peace is the experience of Christ in you, the hope of glory!
I had the Apostle Paul begin his letters to the churches with, “Grace and peace to you through God the Father of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.” Grace and peace, which both flow from Our Love, are inexorably intertwined! It’s impossible to stop or prevent having one without the other.
It’s impossible to experience true peace and at the same time be afraid of punishment for something you might do that would offend the person or group that you’re “at peace” with. That’s why We want you to be absolutely confident about Our perfect, unconditional love. Our perfect love drives out all fear from you so that you can confidently be at peace now, every day and at the day of “judgment” (which was the day Jesus judged all humanity right with Us in His finished work at the cross!)
You have Our peace! He lives in you. He is for you! He manifests Our peace in you, through you and as you!
You have the choice: you can worry, be fearful, depend on your own abilities, catastrophize and doubt… or, you can rest, relax, trust Us and let Peace Himself wash over you and immerse you in Our peace. Choose wisely!
