There is a clear distinction between the peace of the world and the peace of God.
It is God’s passion and effort for us to have peace. As we understand the significance of this priority, anything we accomplish is secondary to knowing our security in Him. Stress enters through iniquity, which is the rejection of God’s morals and values. We tend to wonder why we aren’t living in peace, when in reality we have decided to fulfill a passion in our own way, assuming that God is restricting us, instead of knowing that He is loving us perfectly.
