“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:2).
The most valuable thing a human being can possess is peace of heart. Billionaires cannot purchase it, and politicians cannot demand that everyone have equal access to this inner state of quiet calm and serenity.
There is only one way to acquire this peace that eludes the most educated psychologists who do not understand its spiritual significance. The only way to have genuine peace is to be right with the God of the universe. The God who created human beings for his glory has encoded our hearts and minds with a basic knowledge concerning the laws of the universe. Those who are in harmony with natural and spiritual law will understand the true nature of spiritual peace as a gift from the creator.
The apostle Paul wrotet:
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you” (Philippians 4:8,9).
The first step towards gaining peace of heart is to be right with God. The second step is to trust God with our life to the point where we see the good of God in all things. There is no situation where God cannot turn our burdens into a blessing. The God of love, joy, and peace can turn any tribulation into triumph. He can turn any adversity to our advantage.
Commit your heart to Jesus and experience the grace of God which alone can grant the peace for which you are searching. Trust God with all things and allow the Holy Spirit to breathe rest into your soul.
