We are a product of what rules inside of us!..The face, our countenance reflects what is inside of us. Many people are always with a “Trunk of Elephant”, which means, always bitter in the way of speaking, behavior, revolted with everyone, words of criticism, skeptical about everyone that comes around.
What is the cause of that? Is the hatred, grudge, pride, traumas, rejection, meaning it’s a negative spirit that rules over the person, and becomes so bitter with life that doesn’t even believe that someone has a good intention to help.
On the other face of the coin, we have the SPIRIT OF PEACE, that wants to rule over a person’s life!…
The person may have everything that this life has to offer, however if he/she lacks the SPIRIT OF PEACE, inside, than there is nothing that is able to bring fulfillment. Many would give everything they have for a bit of this peace inside, and they are in constant pursuit of peace.
When the SPIRIT OF PEACE comes upon us, gives inner peace, even if the all “hell breaks loose” one has peace of mind, transmits peace upon speaking with others, their eyes reflect the presence of God.
Obviously the “peace” that this world offers is momentary , flashing, temporary. The SPIRIT OF PEACE is rather permanent and independent of any circumstance or adversity. It’s inwardly not outwardly and everlasting.
Hence what the Apostle Paul says in the epistle of Colossians 3:15
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”
This SPIRIT OF PEACE, rules in the heart trough our intelligence!…Not emotions, feelings. The Holy Spirit becomes the “King”, the true ruler. Spirit/Intelligence VS Emotions and Feelings.
What is ruling of you? The ruler of bitterness or the peace of God?
