Peace is what we feel in out heart and soul when all is right with the world. Not that the world is in any way right. Peace is tied to wellbeing and it resonates within us when we know that our life choices have been made soundly and from a just and righteous alignment.
A lack of peace comes when we make unrighteous decisions and fail to repent and make it right. It happens when we operate and engage life from a selfish and self centered perspective. When we move by greed, deception and selfish ambition.
A person who is caught in the throws of depravity and desolation does not get there over night. They get there by ignoring their conscience and by not dealing with the wrong they have committed.
For this reason Jesus came that we might have our consciences cleared and our peace restored.
He came to give liberty and show us how to live in this chaotic world in fullness of peace.
Galatians 5:1 (NASB)
1 It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
There is a peace that comes when we chose to walk right with God. It is a peace that destroys the yoke of depravity off of our lives and causes our wellbeing to prosper and grow.
No sin is too great that Jesus cannot forgive and cleanse. God is simply waiting for us to return to His plan and discover the peace he designed for us to experience.
Do nor let the weight of bad decisions steal your peace. Today is a great day to turn to the mercy of God and let Him lift you out of the ruts of sin and set you on a firm path toward joy and fulfillment.
In the Bible Jesus said that He has peace that He desires to give us. Now is the time to access His peace and experience a clean conscience and the freedom that is found only in Jesus.
John 14:27 (NASB)
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.
