You will be living life to the fullest when you have peace. The Lord offers us peace and an untroubled heart.
John 14:1 Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
He gives us not only peace but peace that can not be taken away. Let not your heart be troubled nor let it be fearful.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
Fear is the opposite of peace. The world offers a lack of peace and lots of fears but a Christian had much peace and a lack of fears. A person who has God’s peace, which is a great peace, will not stumble when circumstances are troubling.
Psalm 119:65 Those who love Your law have great peace, And nothing causes them to stumble.
God’s Word is His law and the Lord says those who will love His Word will have great peace
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
Are you living in the world and in the kingdom of this age. You will have troubles and tribulation. If you live in His kingdom then you will be courageous for you will see that He has overcome the world.
Luke 1:78,79 Because of the tender mercy of our God,
With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us,
To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.”
It was the tender mercy of God that sent Jesus Christ to us. He came to shine on us while we were in darkness and the shadow of death but He will guide our feet into the way of peace. If we allow Him to be our Shepherd then He will guide our feet into the way of peace. One of the ways He does this is by leading us down paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Psalms 23:3 He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
When we walk in His righteousness then we will experience His peace. He is righteous and He wants us to walk in His righteousness. We have to learn how to do what is right through His Word and the example of godly believers who are living out the Word of God.
II Timothy 3:16,17 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
As you are trained in walking in righteousness through His Word then you will be equipped for the good works which He has prepared for beforehand for you. One of the good works that He has prepared for you is that He has called you to be a peacemaker. Before you can be a peacemaker you must be at peace with God, with yourself and with others.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
A peacemaker is one who leads others to peace with God. Once people are at peace with God then they will have peace with themselves and will be able to be at peace with others.
James 3:18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
Peace if the fruit of righteousness. Where there is righteousness there will be peace.
Isaiah 32:17 And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.
Do you want peace in your life, in your family, in your all of your relationships and in your job or wherever you are? Let there be righteousness in you and there will be peace, quietness and confidence.
