When we experience anxiety, we may seek to acquire inner calm through positive thinking, a dependable job, good friendships, or financial gain. But only the Lord can give us peace beyond worldly understanding. The world is ever-changing, along with situations. Therefore, we cannot rely solely upon tangible things to bring about constant peace.
There is good news for believers! The Lord remains the same (Malachi 3:6), and when He is our source of peace, we can remain tranquil in the midst of tribulation (John 14:27). Although we cannot understand God’s peace in its entirety (Philippians 4:7), there’s assurance in acknowledging that it does not depend upon external things.
God is in control, and when we encounter hardships, His peace can give us a reason to smile and continue persevering (John 16:33).
Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. – 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (NKJV)
