    Default Perfect Peace, Everlasting Rest

    Rest not only means to be free from activity, but it also speaks of having a peace of mind or spirit. We know how to cease activity, although we do not always practice free from our labor as often as we should. But how do we attain peace of mind or spirit? What exactly is peace, and where do we find it?

    Peace has been defined as “a state of tranquility or quiet . . . freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions.”1 David and Aleph knew the source of peace as they penned their psalms: “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace” (Ps. 29:11); “Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble” (Ps. 119:165). And Solomon spoke of the benefits of having peace: “A heart at peace gives life to the body . . .” (Prov. 14:30). Jesus spoke of Himself as the giver of peace: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27), and Apostle Paul confirmed it source: “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1).

    After reading and reflecting on these Scriptures, I find that the peace-giver is the Lord and we find peace through believing in and obeying Him. Through this perfect peace, “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding” (Phil 4:7), we can find rest in our minds and spirit. I encourage you this day to seek God with all your heart, learn of Him, and follow wherever He leads you. You will discover that His way leads beyond today to everlasting rest.
    Blessings,

    I think this woman has got it!

    I must love the Lord my God with all of my heart, all of my mind and with all of my strenght!
    I must Love my neighbor as myself!

    All of the Word of God hangs on these two things, do them and you fulfill the requirement of God, and recieve healing and peace, and joy not from this world that bubbles over!

    You also start to see the face of God, and all of His goodness!
    When you obey and love even those who don't love you, the power of God moves mountians and changes peoples hearts.

    1Cor13
    Who God is!
    God is love and the face of God can only be seen by those who love this way.
    Here you will find peace that goes behond all understanding and is only found in Love! God is love and those who love are of God!
    The only way to this love is through Jesus!
