Peace. Oh, how we want it. We want it in our homes, our families, in our relationships, in our churches, our communities. We want peace in our country.

Broken lives, lost jobs, illness, and death surround us.

Will we ever truly have peace? The Bible is clear that worldly peace will not be possible until Jesus, our Prince of Peace, returns.

Does that mean until His return, we must simply endure the strife and unrest of this world?

No. We simply have to look to the Source of peace. Peace will never be found in our government or our money or our family relationships. True peace can only be found in the hearts and minds of those who know the One who establishes peace.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)

Regardless of what’s going on in our world, regardless what is going on in American politics, we can have peace. All we have to do is trust in Him Who supplies peace that truly does pass all earthly understanding.

After all, we really do know how the story ends.

I pray God’s blessing on the work of your hands and your hearts,

Vonda

  • I needed this today. Family relationships.

    xoxoxo

    • Oh Julie, that’s all you have to say. I’m right there with you, sweet friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Peace has been a blessing as I rest behind the shield of faith during these political battles. When I go to vote next week, I will have peace because I’ve prayed for the Lord’s lead to full fill God’s plan. There’s great peace in knowing He is in control.

    Isaiah 26:3 is a great reminder that other believers are with us behind the shield of faith in trusting God and we are united in the peace He brings.

    Thank you for today’s post, Vonda. May our peace be contagious.

    • Thank you, Carolyn, for saying so beautifully what is in my heart. And thank you, Vonda, for this beautiful reminder of the Source of all Peace.

      Hugs to you both.

      • Thank YOU for stopping by, Judith! Blessings on your weekend!

    • Yes, we have peace because we know who is in charge. And He is the only one we can trust with our future!
