Do You Have Peace?

Do you have peace? When we think of peace, we may think of peace between nations and how world leaders are always trying to negotiate peace agreements. But there is personal peace as well.
Personal peace is when an individual has peace. How can we have personal peace? There are three aspects of peace.
First, there is peace with God. Every human being comes into the world as a sinner. We are separated from God spiritually. No one will ever be at peace until they are right with God. And, to be right with God we must trust God. That means having peace with God.
Secondly, we can have the peace of God. We get the peace of God when we are living for God… when we are doing what God wants us to do. A person can have peace with God but not experience the peace of God because we are out of God’s will. When we have the peace of God, we know we are doing what God wants us to do.
But finally, we can have peace with our fellow man. This comes from being right with our fellow man. Is there anyone you have offended? Anyone you don’t speak to? If so, you don’t have peace with your fellow man and that needs to be resolved.
In John 20:19, Jesus said to His disciples, “Peace be with you.” Jesus wants us to have peace. Today, are you at peace? If not, you can be. Make sure you are right with God… then, make sure you are doing what God wants you to do and be right with your fellow man.
There is an old song that goes;
“I’ve got peace like a river, I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river, in my soul.”
Do you have peace? If you don’t, you can.
