Peace Money Can't Buy

CHAPTER TWO THE SOURCE OF THIS PEACE The Source Of This Peace For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33 No one can give what he does not have. So also the giver of this peace I am talking about must have it in abundance, enough to distribute. God Almighty is the source of this peace. His peace is unlimited and is available for as many as desire it. God Almighty is the source of this peace. His peace is unlimited and is available for as many as desire it. Trouble is not from God; rather, He desires that we enjoy all-round peace. When God created the earth, everything was very good and peaceful. Adam could move about among animals, including wild ones, and not be afraid. God also visited Adam daily in the cool of the day; there was peace all around (Genesis 1 & 2). You can only find peace in the presence of God. The Bible tells us that in the presence of God is fullness of joy, and at His right hand, there are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16:11). If you abide in God's presence, you'll dwell in His peace. People may claim they enjoy peace from other beings or things, but one thing is certain, whatever peace they have is not the kind of peace I am talking about here. Their kind of peace usually ends up having all manner of negative strings and conditions attached. For instance, a time came when Nahash the Ammonite encamped against Jabesh Gilead in 1 Samuel 11. The men of Jabesh, desiring peace, asked that a covenant be made with them, that they would serve Nahash. The condition for peace given to them was that Nahash would pluck out all their right eyes! If God hadn't intervened on their behalf through Saul they probably would have consented to that "peace". Also, since men are subject to change, peace given by men is almost always temporal. And if it is from the enemy the devil, you are sure to lose out at the end, because he doesn't do anything in anyone's interest. When the devil gives one thing, be sure it is so he will get ten in exchange for that one he gave. On the other hand, however, God gives His peace with your best interest in mind; for His thoughts for you are not of evil, but of peace, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). God made provisions for His children to enjoy peace in the midst of whatever chaos maybe going on in the world around them. This is what differentiates those that serve God from those that do not. There is peace for those who will turn to God. He gives hope to the hopeless and keeps those walking through the midst of a burning fiery furnace cool. This provision of peace is available to all, but accessible only to those who will humbly submit to the Lordship of Jesus. Make a decision to be one of them today if you are not one yet. There can't be peace anywhere God is absent; only confusion and strife. Confusion disappears as soon as He steps in, and peace automatically appears (1 Corinthians 14:33). So, if you find yourself in an environment full of chaos, introduce God to the situation; if He is accepted, peace will reign there. God is the author of everlasting peace. When Jesus' disciples were in the midst of a storm, they had no solution. But immediately God the Son entered the boat the storm ceased and they had peace (Mark 6:45-51). Therefore, if there be any storm raging against you now, don't hesitate to invite God into the situation, and you will have peace. Christ's Inheritance To Believers Do you know the worth of your inheritance from the Lord? Most people like to leave good inheritances to their loved ones at their death. Likewise, Christ also left us a very important inheritance from the Father. Peace I leave with you, My
