So many in the world today are longing for PEACE. Such troubled times and it is evident in daily lives and in the news each day. When searching for answers, always look to the word of God.
1 Peter 3:11
They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.
I have always been taught not to take a single scripture out of context. Looking at verse 10 we see:
For, “Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.
God’s blessings (and peace) come from a place of action. We are told to “speak as though it already is”, yet words without actions are empty. God’s word is filled with promises, however, nothing God has promised comes without an action on the part of the receiver.
1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
If you want PEACE, turn from evil, seek God and pursue PEACE. It resides in a place close to Him.
