Peace - Part 1

We can look everywhere the world points and we'll never find deep-seeded peace. We can make resolutions, read books and have a million conversations, but we'll never find peace. When one of my dearest friends gives her testimony, she always talks about how she could never find peace in her life - until she got saved.

In God's eyes, peace is that tranquility that only settles upon us when we accept Him. That peace then becomes available daily as we build our relationship with Him.

But why is this concept so difficult? Many women go through life looking under every rock possible to find calmness in the hustle of today's world.

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1

Sound easy, maybe too easy? We can have deep-seeded peace in the depth of our souls through simple faith. If you've accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, you already have the peace - you may just not be aware of it. Often we let the noise of everything else going on in our lives distract us from the peace God has promised. That makes it seem like we just don't have the right to claim something that wonderful.

But it's a gift that comes from a loving Father. With the peace that only comes from trusting the Lord, you can be in the middle of any crowd and still have perfect peace. You can be in swirling in circumstances and still rest in the peace of God. Is that not the greatest blessing the Lord can give?

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3

To claim the peace of God and settle into the tranquility He bestows:
* discard negative thoughts and focus on the truth of God's Word.
* trade in the chaos of the world for the serenity of God's path.
* substitute swirling schedules and tangled choices for calmness of God's instructions.
* exchange confusion for identity and purpose in God's love.

It's all possible with the gifts of salvation and peace through Jesus Christ.

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2
