The key element in true lasting peace is the presence of God.In Isaiah 26:3 the Bible says-"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast,because he trust in you".The awesomeness of the whole matter comes when you escalate your faith and learn to trust in His word.
Perfect peace not only dull our pains,it enables us to face an avalanche of hardship and difficulty and still have the inner peace that surpasses all human understanding.
READ Philippians 4:7
In that vein,there are a few walks of faith that solidify the perfect peace:
- Focus on God- Learn to focus on He that created you.He has a divine purpose for your existence.When you concentrate on that problem,you see it being bigger and difficult to handle.Train your self to always mediate the will of God in every situation.
- Trust Him- Keep your hope and trust upon Christ,the Bible says in Psalm 127:1 -"Unless the Lord builds the house,the builders labor in vain.Unless the Lord watches over the city,the guards stand watch in vain." .You ought to trust unto the Lord.Sometimes,He uses His tribulations to reveal more of Him unto you.His word is a solid -rock,giving hope to the world,with promises which He ever Honors.
- Meditate on His Word -Learn His word daily.Make it a daily feast.In Psalm 119:165-"Great peace have those who love your law,and nothing can make them stumble."
