Peace is possible but not of your own doing. So, what does this mean?
It means that no matter how good we are at developing financial wealth, or how successful we are at any chosen occupation, or how well we protect ourselves of our loved ones, we can never find true peace in this world.
It means that no matter how many people of influence you know, or where you live, or how many precautions you have taken, your life can be hurled upside down in a second. It only takes one second to suffer a heart attack, or be hit by a drunk driver, or have one of your children severely injured while playing a sporting activity.
The Potential Of Lasting Peace
What you may have thought was peace only a few seconds ago can be changed in a moment.
You can go from happy to tears without warning.
True peace comes only through trusting Jesus no matter the circumstances. It is this trust that transcends all worldly events from earthquake, financial ruin, and even death.
Beyond Belief Trust is something beyond belief. Let me explain.
One can believe in Jesus Christ but trust means that you put your life in His hands.
It is this trust that accepts that Jesus knows best, and His plans are far more detailed and beyond human understanding than we could ever imagine.
It is this trust that brings you PEACE in all circumstances knowing that God is in control.
Knowing He loves you like a father loves a child; knowing He only wants what is best for you; knowing His plans are perfect.
Once you recognize this and trust Him then you will find a peace that you never
imagine. Your whole life will change. I am not saying you will not have challenges or issues
but what I am saying is you will have a peace that you never had before.

the heart of His character, which is love."

we feel most helpless. He gives words when there are none. Knowledge
when there isn't any. He. Can. Do. All. Things."
