Isaiah 26:3-4 (KJV) says “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”
We can never avoid turmoil in the world around us, but with God, we can know perfect peace even in turmoil. When we are devoted to God, our whole attitude is steady and stable.
Supported by God's unchanging love and mighty power, we are not shaken by the surrounding chaos.
IF YOU WANT PEACE,
KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS ON AND YOUR TRUST IN JESUS!
In John 14:27 (NIV), Jesus said “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
The end result of the Holy Spirit's work in our lives is deep and lasting peace. Unlike worldly peace, which is usually defined as the absence of conflict, this peace is confident assurance in any circumstance.
Sin, fear, uncertainty, doubt, and numerous other forces are at war within us. The peace of God moves into our hearts and lives to restrain these hostile forces and offer comfort in place of conflict.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV) says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
God's peace is different from the world's peace. True peace is not found in positive thinking, in absence of conflict, or in good feelings. It comes from knowing that God is in control.
Our citizenship in Christ's kingdom is sure, our destiny is set, and we can have victory over sin. Let God's peace guard your heart against anxiety in time of turmoil.
With Christ's peace, we have no need to fear the present or the future. Jesus says He will give us peace if we are willing to accept it from Him. If you life is full of turmoil, allow the Holy Spirit to fill you with Christ's peace.
