Isaiah 26:3; Jeremiah 33:6
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee( 26:3. Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto the abundance of peace and truth.
The Bible provides its definition of peace as shalom or the absence of war, conflict, or stress. It also mean the positive presence of harmony, wholeness, soundness, well-being and success in all rears of one's life (KJV).
Peace can and do refer to many different scenarios from nations, to individuals and with respect to the state of calmness that is experienced free from strife, anxieties and confusion. In regards to human peace, it can be seen in the form of peace within one's soul and the person's relationship with God. Also, individual peace can be seen as being comfortable in whatever stage of life one finds him or herself. This bring to mind Paul's assessment of being satisfied whether he had a lot or a little he was comfortable because he knew his God is all sufficient. This is true today for all.
These question come to mind, What is your comfort level in your current stage of life? Are you at peace knowing God is the joy of our salvation and He will restore our peace and bring everlasting joy to our souls? Are you letting the peace of God rest and rule in your heart today even in the midst of trouble?
The peace of God surpasses man's peace.
