Disturbing the peace – a crime in many places – must be similarly disallowed in our lives. God’s
peace that surpasses all understanding is a commodity so precious that nothing must be allowed
to disturb it. The enemy seeks to steal peace from the believer by bringing thoughts of fear,
anxiety, worry, and offense. We must resist these wrong thoughts and instead live in the spirit: the
realm of faith, love, joy, and peace. Develop the habit of walking in God’s peace, refusing to live
without it for even one day. It’s the believer’s responsibility to keep his or her mind fixed on God.
When we do, He’ll keep us in perfect peace.
