Peace is reassurance. It is believing that everything is under Gods control and therefore will be ok according to Gods wise plan. Inner peace, also known as ’perfect peace’ or true peace, only comes from trusting fully in Him. Despite the problem often remains, your Fear and worry disappears because you trust God.
‘Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD forever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. Isaiah 26:3, 4
An artist once sought to portray peace. He put on his canvas a sea, swept by storms, filled with wrecks, a scene of terror and danger. Yet, In the midst of the sea he painted a great rock and high up in the rock a cleft, with herbage and flowers, In the midst of which he showed a dove sitting quietly on her nest. This displays the power of peace, when there is danger all around. The dove found true peace because she trusted the rock for safety. ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1,2
