The Hebrew word translated as “peace” is “shalom”. It means more than the opposite of conflict. It’s about being complete and safe. This is why we ultimately only can find peace in God. Without God we are not complete and not at peace.

  1. Psalm 34:14 Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. 

You have a choice in your life. When you are in a conflict, do you seek peace? Take the first step and reach out to anyone you are not at peace with and seek peace.

  1. Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

There is blessing and happiness in being a peacemaker. As children of God we are called to seek peace.

  1. Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

We know there are conflicts and troublemakers in the world. But the Bible tells us to do what we can to live in peace with everyone.

  1. Isaiah 55:12 For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

When you walk with God in peace, everything is different. There may be conflict around you, but worldly conflict and troubles can’t overcome the peace of God.

  1. Romans 14:19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

Actively work for peace, not just for your own sake, but also to build up others around you.

  1. 2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all.

The Bible wishes for you, and for all to have peace. May God be with you, so that your life will be at peace and complete.

  1. Numbers 6:24-26 The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

The priestly blessing tells us that in God’s presence there is peace. Seek God and you shall find him. God bless you.
