Peace and Confidence Forever

Isaiah 32:17 -- "And this righteousness will bring peace. Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever."

Righteousness in the eyes of God is defined by faith.

Genesis 15:6 -- "And Abram believed the Lord, and the Lord counted him as righteous because of his faith."

When we have faith that God is who he says he is, does what he says he will do and produces all for good, we can find a true peace.

John 14:27 -- "I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid."

This is a peace that world will never be able to provide. It comes from the faith that God has all of the evil, struggle and circumstances under his Almighty control and it will all be for good.

It is with that faith, that any miracle is possible with God, that a quietness comes over you. There is no more need for restlessness or worry. A calm overtakes you that allows for great things to happen in your life and in those around you. Even when there is struggle, you are able to stand on the rock of Christ knowing that hen the storm passes you will remain on solid ground.

Knowing that you have a sturdy foundation in Christ will cover you with confidence, which will not allow the instability of the world to effect you any longer.

It all begin with faith, and having a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
