Peace That Lasts the Trials of Eternity

Peace that lasts, is like gold, it is wonderful, yet at the same time, it is very difficult to attain. And yet, we all want peace that lasts. Chaos and disruption is the last thing people want as a constant within their lives. So, in this post, we’ll be looking at the topic of peace, why we need it, and as to how we could attain such a thing. So, continue reading to learn more.

The Peace You Need

You know in your heart that you need peace. It is not just a want, it’s a need. It’s not a need for survival, but a need for your mental health.

God did not build you to endure never-ending chaos. There is a time for work, and there is a time for rest. Otherwise, where would be your peace? Even God doesn’t like chaos. He made peace out of the chaos. For example, look at the beginning of creation. Our world was originally in a state of chaos (I personally believe this state of chaos was due to the fall of Lucifer as is heavily hinted at, throughout the Bible).

Genesis 1:2 King James Version (KJV)
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Then, God intervened. Furthermore, the Bible says God brought the world back into order and that is the time He created Adam and Eve, the first time humans entered the picture of history.

Genesis 1:31 King James Version (KJV)
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

You see, God saw the order in the world He made. He saw how peaceful everything was, and it was good to Him. He sees peace as good. But, that peace did not last, as humanity betrayed God, resulting in all the evil we witness today, which I talk more about in this post.

Nevertheless, the point is that peace is a must for your mental health. You need it to live a good life.

Constant Chaos or Promising Peace?

Now that we have established the need for peace, let’s observe a promise stated within the Bible.

John 14:26-27 World English Bible (WEB)
26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, I give to you. Don’t let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.

God gives a solution to answer the chaos in our hearts. To our constant turbulence, He responds within a promise of peace. And what does He says about that peace?

He says it is a peace which is unlike the peace which the world might offer. The world with all its temptations and struggles likes to offer things like greed, drugs, and so many other enticements.

James 1:14-15 King James Version (KJV)
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

These things will offer a level of peace, but that peace is always temporary, and it leads you to a fate of destruction and calamity. Jesus Christ does not offer peace like that. He offers you peace that lasts.

However, this is only possible because of Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of God, Jesus Christ. And so, the choice now belongs to you. Do you want constant chaos or promising peace?

Deuteronomy 30:15 World English Bible (WEB)
15 Behold, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and evil.

Peace That Lasts

Continuing on, the peace that lasts is only possible through submission to God. If you want peace for your mind so that no matter the situation, you will have the peace of God, you need to accept God.

And what I mean by accept, is to believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Saviour. Jesus Christ is God who came down to Earth in the form of a human being. He healed the sick, cast out demons, and set people free. And yet, religious teachers grew upset and jealous of Jesus Christ hence why they forced the Roman government of that ancient time, to scourge and crucify Jesus Christ. Jesus could have stopped it with His legions of angels, and yet, this was all part of God’s plan to redeem the entire human race, to put peace within the hearts of those who allow Him to do so.

Jesus Christ received your divine punishment on the cross so that He would be punished with the hell meant for you. And if you accept His sacrifice by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, His Holy Spirit enters you to give you God’s peace that lasts.

Without God, the peace that lasts, is an impossible thing to achieve. Even when God brought peace to the chaotic state of this world, He first spoke light into being.

Genesis 1:2-4 King James Version (KJV)
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

So, you need God to overcome the chaos with His peace, as is symbolized by the light.

Moreover, this does not mean that after accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you will never face a challenge again. On the contrary, life will continue to hurl its obstacles at you. But, with Jesus Christ, you will have the peace of Holy Spirit to strengthen you. That is why He is known as the “Counselor.” If you were never going to face a dilemma, you would not need a counselor.

John 14:26 World English Bible (WEB)
26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.

Therefore, seek Holy Spirit in your issues. And trust God for the peace that lasts. I promise you that God never breaks a promise and that His peace will guide you because He promised to give you peace.

Philippians 4:7 King James Version (KJV)
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
