“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful” (Colossians 3:15 NKJV). “Rule” means to govern, arbitrate, act as an umpire, preside, be supreme, and be in control. This is an important verse. It tells you how to live in peace, with both yourself and others. Peace is already in your hearts. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Paul says since peace is in your heart let it rule. Give it reign over your feeling, emotions, and situations. The Amplified Bible says, “Deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds.” How do you do that? By giving it the peace test. Are you at peace with a decision? Is you feeling that of peace or chaos? To be at peace within yourself is one of the most wonderful benefits of being a believer. “Peace I leave you.” Let peace rule.
