When you look at all your circumstances and relationships by yourself, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. So don’t look at them alone. In Christ, you’re never on your own in managing your wholeness, contentment, and confidence.
You know peace is a state. Just remember who governs that state. Jesus is the Prince of Peace—it’s an innate part of his character, nature, and kingdom. And you’re his completely loved and celebrated royal co–heir. Peace is in your spiritual DNA.
Ask him to help you live your life from that incredible peace, a peace immersed in your Father’s healing, rest, kindness, hope, wisdom, patience, and joy. You’ll start to see the past as powerless to harm you, problems as opportunities to grow, and people for who they’re capable of becoming, in the same peace God is loving you with.
“For the kingdom of God is . . . righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17).
