Peace, everyone loves peace. We love peace at home, in our nation, at work, and everywhere else.
But peace seems complicated to come by these days. We are at war with ourselves, our families, and our world. The lack of this peace is a source of stress and anxiety for many. If you find yourself one of those people, as a follower of Christ, you have another choice.
But in this context, peace is not merely the absence of conflict but a profound state of well-being and harmony, regardless of the situation that you are in. It is a calm that rests in your soul, a peacefulness from your relationship with God.
Peace, as described in Galatians, Gal 5:22-23 (NLT), is a result of the Holy Spirit's work within your life.
The Holy Spirit empowers you to navigate your life challenges with faith and knowing that you are in the hands of a loving God.
Dear Jesus, I need Your peace to flow through my life and into the world I love. AMEN
