Most people would probably admit they’d like a little more peace in their lives. The question is, What will you do for it? Are you willing to change? Because that’s what it may take to have a truly peaceful life.
We must pursue peace if we really want it. The Bible instructs us to seek the kingdom of God…because God is the source of true peace. Romans 14:17 (AMP) says “…the kingdom of God is not a matter of [getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [heart] peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
I think the perception of peace is what distracts most people from really having it. It seems like a lot of people seek their peace in things. And most of us are not even satisfied with the things we have…we always want more. Some seek peace in certain relationships. But other people don’t always act the way we like…and interaction is not always peaceful. Some even seek peace in their religion…only to feel guilty and condemned when they don’t do everything right.
