Environments are important. They’re the difference between productivity and waste, joy and sadness, inspiration and despair.
We live our best lives in an environment of peace. When peace rules, better work is done, more happiness is found, and every aspect of health improves. God designed you to function at your peak in an atmosphere of peace.
The big question is, how do we find peace, and how do we keep peace in our hearts, our homes and in the many relationships of life?
The first step on the path to peace is critical. It can’t be skipped or replaced. It’s essential. Peace is the result of a right and good relationship with God. It comes when we know that we are loved by Him, forgiven by Him and accepted into His family through faith in His Son, Jesus, Christ.
Paul the apostle wrote about this in Romans 5:1, 2 (TPT) “Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and he now declares us flawless in his eyes. This means that we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us. Our faith guarantees us permanent access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory!”
Do you have this kind of peace—real peace with God? When it’s in you, it can flow through you to the people and environments around you!
