For those who wonder what the “Peace of God” means. It is simply when your spirit is still when everything else around you is spinning. It is the ABSENCE of stress, anxiety, worry, fret and fear. It is when your head says “I should be worrying/fretting about this but your heart is still and at rest knowing that your God will take care of you!

And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7 AMP

Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] John 14:27 AMP

Let the peace of God lead you! If you are anxious inside about a decision or circumstance then it is not of God, when you know that God is directing your paths there is an inner peace that comes on you in the storm. It doesn’t mean that your circumstances have changed, it means that you have changed inside trusting God.

When you start letting the “Peace of God” guide your decisions you start to find things work out better, you will make much less mistakes especially when things look impossible to you! Basically it is learning how God guides and directs our paths. He doesn’t put up billboards that say “go this way”. The Holy Spirit simply and gently nudges you to go this way by giving you a “peace and calm inside”. Almost saying it will be alright.

The peace of God is no guarantee that things will work out the way you think they will either. It is a Heavenly Father caring for His children and training them up. So the next time you are in a storm… look for the peace of God for direction of how to get out of it. If you feel anxious and that you have to make a decisions RIGHT NOW, it is not of God. Relax and Trust that He is God, not you.
