There’s only one way to experience an abiding peace that transcends circumstances—by faith. Faith is the foundation for living in God’s peace—an active, confident trust in His presence and power to sustain and comfort you, no matter the circumstance you face.
There are certain issues that can undermine our faith and rob us of our peace.
• Our adversary, the devil
• Giving up in a crisis
Because God is with us, we don’t have to give in to, or become defeated by our troubles. We can face and overcome them in the power of the cross.
Jesus taught His followers that our troubles are passing in nature for a season. So “let not your heart be troubled” (John 14:27). Hold on to the peace that God gives, confident that He’s watching, directing, and caring for those who trust and believe in Him.
Remember whatever situation/circumstance we find ourselves in, Jesus says, "“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)
