Perfect peace is so hard to find in our world today. We live in a time when odd things thrive and are seen as normal. Many people can't even imagine what it feels like to have peace, much less have inner peace. There's a constant battle for immediate gratification, the need to fit in and belong, and the need to be termed modern by a broken society. Many people walk around with negative vibes and energy. At any little provocation, they would dump their garbage on the first victim. It's no news that many millennials don't understand who they have. Some barely have the knowledge or understand why they feel the way they do. Peace has become a rare commodity in our dysfunctional world today. Yet, there is a promise from the word of God to help us.
When you're out of touch with reality you have a hard time dealing with life. At every stage of our lives, we feel we've gotten our lives figured out. We grow complacent about the struggles that got us to the stage where we are in. Yet, life has a way of knocking us out of our mirage and jolting us back to reality. When life challenges come knocking, our chances of navigating through each hurdle lies greatly on the level of peace of mind we have.
A wise man once said, "A troubled mind cannot define peace." Without peace, your life can become a living hell. No sane person would want to deal with a toxic person who's life is filled with anger, resentment, and hostility. Note that when your life is void of peace, the aforementioned are unavoidable. It all comes back to knowing the value of having a peaceful mind. Get more out of life by becoming aware of your life and how much peace you own at the moment, otherwise you spazz out for no reason.
In these uncertain times, one thing is certain; the peace God is offering to us is of inestimable value. Your happiness is guaranteed when you're at peace with yourself. The world offers a selfish peace, but God’s peace is perfect. Oftentimes, we care more and listen to the cares of this world. We find ourselves paying more attention to what is happening around us than to what is within us. Yet, what we need to do is set our minds on Jesus Christ. We are not ignoring what is going on, but we need to keep God, and His Word, first place. Do this, and you will have perfect peace in your life.
If you feel like you aren’t at peace with yourself and you have no peace within you, below are several things that you can do to help you get your perfect peace:
. Stop, take a deep breath, and say, “Father, I need you, and I need this perfect peace that you promised in - Isaiah 26:3". The condition of living in perfect peace is to become a doer of God's word. Hearing isn't enough. Have your mind and heart set on keeping God's word and remaining in his presence.
. Be Quick To Forgive. Forgive yourself.
Forgive others. Life is too short to hold on to grudge for more than 24hrs. Tomorrow isn't promised to anyone. Today is all you have. Make the best of it. Be patient with everyone. Your peace of mind is more important than all the luxuries of life put together.
. Keep A Fresh Perspective To Life.
The human eyes have a unique way of seeing only what it chooses to see. The benefit of seeing the world with a new set of eyes is inexhaustible. Keeping a fresh perspective and an open mind helps us to remain the focus. We have the ability to kick start our thinking, and improve daily.
A fresh perspective can help us find better solutions to problems. Once we understand that nothing in life is ever as it appears to be, we will understand other peoples' behavior better and have a new perspective on any situation.
. Avoid Being Judgemental.
No one is perfect. We all have unique individualism and the earlier we accept people for who they are, the quicker we would have inner peace. Listen more than you speak. Before you draw your conclusion, seek out different views. There's always a reason for every action, find out the reason for people's actions. That would give you a better understanding of who they are and secure your peace of mind.
Your peace of mind is important and you deserve the perfect peace of God. In him, you move, live, and have your being. Make a decision to not get caught up with things that would steal your peace away. Choose to remain focus and trust God to handle the things you can't handle.
