Peace Comes Through Abiding

When people crave peace in their lives, sometimes they err when they seek God's hands over his heart. Peace comes through knowing our Lord--for he himself is peace--and living in trust and obedience to him. Any other option won't lead us to peace. Listen to what God has to say.
