How to Have Peace in Your Life


Peace comes from two sources -- outside yourself, due to circumstances and other people, and inside yourself, which can come from God.

God is the real source of lasting peace in your life.  If your peace and happiness come from outside yourself, that can change. Circumstances and people can change in a minute -- your financial security can change; your health and other circumstances can change overnight.  

If your peace just comes from circumstances and outside conditions, then your life will go up and down like a yo-yo as things change. 

What we all need and want is lasting peace -- and this comes from God.  Peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.  When you have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, God forgives your sins and makes you a new person.  He loves you, and His peace can overflow in your life regardless of your daily circumstances.  The Apostle Paul said he knew how to abound in all circumstances.  So you can be happy and have God's peace whether you are in the midst of sunshine or in the midst of a storm.  You can ask God for His peace in your life today!
