Good morning.


If people are asked what peace means, they’ll give you a variety of answers:

• Peace and quiet

• Tranquility

• Freedom from disturbance

• Lack of oppressive thoughts or feelings

• Harmonious relationships

• Time without war

• Absence of hostility or harm


While those answers aren’t bad or wrong, they are usually from a viewpoint that doesn’t include God in the equation. The world’s peace is different from God’s peace. When things are calm, we’re at peace. When the storms of life hit us, we’re not at peace. Worldly peace is temporary and dependent upon circumstances, and doesn’t provide the kind of peace Jesus is offering.


We concern ourselves with temporary struggles. God offers a permanent solution, which is His peace. It doesn’t matter how how smart, creative, and wise we are, we don’t know how to create peace.


The peace that God gives may be beyond our comprehension, but it’s not beyond our grasp. It’s readily available to us. There are no “3 easy steps to peace with God.” God's peace only comes through His son, Jesus.


God's peace gives us hope and a future, "... which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."

(Colossians 1:27)


Walk in His peace today.


Blessings

Mike and Daphne
