    The Seedbed Daily Wake-Up Call, November 22, 2022

    The peace that passes all understanding is just that. It is a peace that defies explanation. It doesn’t make sense. It is like mixing oil and water. Peace does not go together with the realities of our world. It’s the peace that Jesus had when He was asleep in the middle of the raging storm, when He asked them, “why are you afraid?” (Matthew 8:24-27). It is the everlasting peace that only He can give us. It’s knowing that He is always in the same boat with us.

    It also means as JD suggests “something like all of the broken and dislocated pieces of creation, our relationships, and our lives put back together again by God into a divine integration and wellness.” It’s a form of supernatural healing. It is the “balm of Gilead” that Jeremiah lamented for. As the Casting Crowns song says, “your life is not falling apart it is falling into place.” Jesus is on the throne, He is in charge, just keep holding on to Him. He is the peace that passes all understanding and He is the balm of Gilead.
