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. This is a really good time to let him teach you more about living that peace in the fullest ways he intends, which is more than enough in you to overwhelm any conflict in front of you.
“Don’t worry about anything. Instead, pray about it all—tell God what you need, and thank him for all he’s already 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).
