Finding Perfect Peace

Peace. Is it only the absence of unrest or uncertainty? Our world is desperately looking for peace today. Men and women, boys and girls, all want a quiet restfulness in their lives. Peace.

But can you have and maintain PEACE in this crazy, chaotic world? I’m so glad you asked….

Today I want you to concentrate on the first part of Isaiah 26:3:

You will keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind  is stayed on Thee: because he trusts in Thee.
Trust in the Lord forever.”

The Hebrews meaning of the word “peace” in this verse means whole, well, healthy, and prosperous. It’s more than just being free of any uncertainty or a lack of chaos. It’s complete and for your entire being, body, soul, and spirit. Only God’s perfect peace will enable you to stay above the chaos and uncertainty that attempts to envelop you.

God’s perfect peace is available for you. You don’t need to keep living in unrest, uncertainty, feeling tortured, in daily turmoil. The peace God provides isn’t here one day and gone the next. It isn’t dependent on what you’ve done or not done. It’s who He is and known through His son, Jesus.

God’s perfect peace is PERFECT. His peace lacks nothing. His peace surrounds you and dwells in you; it squelches the attacks from the world, those outside forces attempting to keep you in turmoil.

You can search all kinds of worldly venues and never find the same perfect peace. True peace comes through knowing Jesus, by spending time with Him in His Word. You’ll discover that He isn’t mad at you, that He loves you, and wants to be close to you. When you see Jesus as your Peace, you’ll know and experience peace that will carry you through anything you encounter in this life.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you…”
John 14:27 (KJV)
