Do you have peace or relief?
RELIEF: Is a feeling of reassurance and relaxation following RELEASE from anxiety or distress. It is temporary and based on circumstances.
PEACE: Is a Spirit that comes from God and is FREEDOM from disturbance. Peace is unfazed by negative circumstances. It brings quiet and tranquility in the midst of chaos and also does not invalidate the word of God.
If our lives are chaotic and our own actions calm the rage, that’s relief. If our lives are chaotic and we do nothing yet we remain unfazed, that’s peace.
“Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.” Ps. 27:3. Peace!
