Being at peace doesn’t mean not having any conflict—there’s almost always some kind of struggle around or in us. Being at peace means knowing who God wants to be for you in the conflict you’re in. Because peace isn’t just a state. Peace is a person.
Jesus has given you all of himself, which includes all his peace, all his nothing–missing–nothing–broken–deeply–whole–and–truly–joyful, so you don’t have to keep striving for a lesser version on your own. Today is a good day to let him teach you more about receiving that peace in the fullest ways he intends, more than enough to overwhelm any conflict.
“Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about everything—tell God what you need, and thank him for all he’s done. Then you’ll experience his peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. That peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
