'My Peace I Give Unto You...Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled, Neither Let It Be Afraid' - John 14:27

'Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them' -Psalms 119:165

Great peace have they which love thy law. Amidst the storms and tempests of the world, there is a perfect calm in the breasts of those, who not only do the will of God [Matt. 7:21], but "love" to do it. 
They are at peace with God, by the blood of reconciliation; at peace with themselves, by the answer of a good conscience, and the subjection of those desires which war against the soul; at peace with all men, by the spirit of charity; and the whole creation is so at peace with them that all things work together for their good. No external troubles can rob them of this "great peace," no "offences" or stumbling blocks, which are thrown in their way by persecution, or temptation, by the malice of enemies, or by the apostasy of friends, by anything which they see, hear of, or feel, can detain, or divert them from their course. Heavenly love surmounts every obstacle, and runs with delight the way of God's commandments. --George Horne   [excerpted from Spurgeon's 'Treasury of David'; Ps. 119:165; cf. John 14:27]
Rev. 3:11 'Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown'
