Many people these days search for peace… that sense of happiness to fill that deep void in their heart but it’s often the case that they find a false version of it in the wrong places.
They think that they can fill that void in drugs, alcohol, girls, entertainment and a whole lot more. The answer is that true peace won’t be found in any of those.
Sadly and tragically many people never find the true source of peace and end up destroying themselves.
Romans 5:1 (NKJV) says…
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
This is true peace that the world can’t give… peace from God that surpasses all human understanding (Phil 4:7).
The bottom line is that peace comes from really knowing God on an individual, personal level through prayer and reading and meditating on His Word and being obedient to all that He asks us to do.
May God bless you as seek to obtain the peace that surpasses all understanding. If you are not a child of God, it is my hope and prayer that you would come to that place in your life where you obtain the peace of God in your life.
Grace and peace,
