“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you,
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” (NASB)
The definition of “troubled” is “showing distress or anxiety.” If you are experiencing mental or emotional anguish there is going to be some pain. I believe Jesus is saying, “I don’t want you to get stuck there. Let not your heart be anguished.” In other words, don’t park there. It will bring you down. Don’t dwell on that. Believe in God. “Believe in Me. This is what I will do for you. I will give peace in the midst of your storm. I will give you joy.”
“Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.” (NASB)
