Christ, my perfect peace

Updated: Apr 18, 2020

The world might be spinning uncontrollably, but in Christ I find my peace.

Over the last few months, the media have been flooded by news about the coronavirus pandemic mainly on the number of infected cases, the number of death toll, the economy impacts, and so on. People all over the world are grappled with fear and panic. Left without hope, they do not know who to turn to, and the money that they have relied upon all this while cannot give them peace.


But the truth is, in the midst of all these, we have peace in Christ. Although it seems that the world is spinning uncontrollably, in Christ there is a perfect calm. Because real peace is a person, and that person is Jesus.


In Christ I am safe and I have all that I need. That is something that I will never trade for anything else because truly Christ is my hope, He is my safe place, He is my Salvation:

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid;

‘For Yahweh, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ ”

Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

(Isaiah 12:2-3)


Those verses have been really speaking to me lately: that no matter what the enemy is throwing at me, I know that I can always draw from the wells of Salvation, my Jesus. The word salvation there comes from the Hebrew word “Yeshua” (Jesus), which means deliverance, victory, welfare, prosperity, and health.


Jesus died at the cross to redeem us from our sin and to give us eternal life. Whoever believe in Him will be saved. He said in John 10:10, “the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy but I come to give (you) life, and life in abundance.” The abundant life that Jesus talks about speaks about victory, deliverance, health, strength, comfort, and everything else that we need in life.


And because He sacrificed His life for us, we can put our trust in Him. And our confidence will be because of Jesus; we can be bold and stand against the enemy. We must put our security, safety, and hope in Him.


And because He sacrificed His life for us, we can put our trust in Him. And our confidence will be because of Jesus; we can be bold and stand against the enemy. We must put our security, safety, and hope in Him.

The word trust from the reading above comes from the Hebrew word “batach”, which means to have confidence, be confident, to be bold, to be secure, to feel safe, be careless, (make to) hope.


As you are reading this, I want to remind you that we can hope in Him, because He’s already proven His love for us, and He has conquered death. We do not have to be afraid and with joy we can draw water from the wells of our salvation. Whatever you need, you can draw it from Jesus. He is The Great I AM.


Come to Jesus


Come to Jesus and dwell under His wings.


If you have not received Christ before, I would like to invite you to receive your salvation so you can always draw from that well of salvation. You just need to open up your heart to Jesus and say this prayer:


Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I repent from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and into my life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Saviour.


If you say that prayer, I am celebrating with you, you are now a child of God! Know that you are accepted in the Beloved, that you are highly favored, greatly blessed, and deeply loved by our Lord Jesus Christ. He Himself has chosen you before the foundation of the world, and He redeemed you with His blood and forgive all of your sins (Ephesians 1:3-7).


You do not have to prove yourself to Him, He is well pleased with you, just receive His love and walk in His love. Always remember that He endured the cross for you because He thinks you are worth Him giving His life to. Jesus died for you, now live for Jesus and let Him shine through you:

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” – Matthew 5:14
