I believe we were meant to live in peace. This doesn’t necessarily mean that we will never have strife. The peace we are meant to live with is in knowing God and that in spite of our current situations our faith in that knowledge of God’s active presence and participation in our lives is working things out in our favor. Our peace is in knowing that when God’s active presence meets with our own obedience to that faith all things are possible. We must be mindful not to block our own blessings. When God calls us out, we can not be afraid to move. Let obedience to our faith in God be our strength and courage. Be at peace knowing that it is God’s presence within that leads us.
Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.” Genesis 12:1-7
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1-12
