Melt in His Peace

This love is so deep; it's more than I can stand.
I melt in Your peace; it's overwhelming.
—Kari Jobe

         “This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins” (I John 4:10, NLT).

         Real love is not about how much I love God. Real love is He loved me enough to send His Son to die for me. 

         “We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love” (I John 4:16a, NLT).          

         Because of the overwhelming unconditional love of God, I yearn to know how deep that real love is. I ache to put my trust in Him—to believe by faith in the life-changing freedom His grace on Calvary has won for me.   

         Melting in His peace comes from experiencing a divine revelation of His redeeming love—and how His love changes who I am. When I know my identity in Jesus, I am no longer in bondage to the lies of who I use to be. Instead, I become consumed by His deep love for me. Oh, it is more than I can stand. The depth of God calls me. I melt in His peace. 

         Are you tired of dealing with lies that rise out of a limited understanding of His love for you? Are you exhausted from wrestling with the symptoms of fear and rejection—hurt and unforgiveness—guilt and shame? These are all symptoms of an underlying issue—not knowing who you are in Jesus. If you want to melt in His peace in each moment, learn who you are in Jesus. Recognize and accept the righteousness of character He has given you. Know His truth. Allow His truth to set you free. Quit treating just the symptoms that came with your old life. Be healed by knowledge of your new life in Jesus. Be transformed by the fullness of His grace. 

         Your life—once shattered—is now clean and whole. Your life—once empty—is now full of His peace and joy. It is time to stop struggling with the symptoms that are no longer real. You are devastated by trying. Now is the time to seek to know the new life He has given you. Get to know the real you in Jesus.

         And that knowledge will give you a symptom-free life. You shall melt in His peace.
