The Price of Peace
From a spiritual position, it was Jesus’ blood that bought our peace. But from a practical or natural position, the price we must pay for peace is a willingness to change our approach to life. We will never enjoy peace without a willingness to adjust and adapt ourselves.
You and I must be willing to sacrifice worry and reasoning if we are to know peace. We cannot have anxiety, frustration, or rigid, legalistic attitudes and enjoy the peace of God.
Keep your mind and conversation on Jesus—not the problem. Worry is useless, vain, and prideful.
One of the big adjustments I had to make was to slow down. It is impossible to remain peaceful and hurry. God is not in a hurry.
Be willing and obedient to make the changes the Holy Spirit leads you to make in order to walk in peace. Jesus has provided His peace—enjoy it! –Joyce Meyer
