How To Have To Live At Peace

Do you have peace? Are you at peace in your life?
Proverbs 14:30 says, “A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.”
Think about that verse. “A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body…but jealousy is like cancer in the bones…” That’s a strong statement but also very true.
It is a strong statement because if we are not at peace, it can literally lead to health issues. So… how do we know if we are at peace?
Are you at peace with God? Has there been a time when you placed their faith in the Lord and asked Him to forgive you of your sins?
Do you have the peace of God? You have this when you are living your life in the center of God’s will. Are you doing what God wants you to do or, is God calling you… nudging you… to do something else but you are resisting?
Do you have peace with your fellow man? If there is friction between you and someone, you need to take the initiative to resolve it. Doing this gives you peace with your fellow man.
So, do you have peace? Are you at peace? If you don’t, you can have peace… and it will lead to more happiness in your life.
Notice the last verse… “jealousy is like cancer in the bones…” Jealousy grows out of a lack of contentment.. a lack of peace. When you are jealous of someone, you want what they have as opposed to being thankful for what God has given you.
Today, with the Lord’s help.. determine to be at peace with God and your fellow man and that will help eliminate jealousy.
