We can place blame on others for “robbing” us of our peace all we want. Truth is, your peace cannot be taken away. It has to be given. When God gives us true peace, it cannot be tampered with. We have it because we recognize the gift that has been given. Isaiah 26:3 says “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts you. John 16:33 says These things I have spoken to you, that in ME you have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
When we find ourselves experiencing “weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities” we are not a peace. When we release those burdens over to God keeping our focus on HIS promises, we will filled with peace-know HE has it all under control.
When I see meme’s or quotes that talk about how “since certain people have left there’s more peace” Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. People tend to walk away from situations when it no longer serves its purpose. Be it good or bad. We place power in the absence of individuals when we have to have them to learn how to deal with conflict. Which is why certain situations resurface. If you’re facing issues in certain areas in life-you or the other person walking away will not solve that problem. Especially if the problem is you, masked by the presence of others.
I remember someone saying to me “I only act this way towards you” they said it as if I were to wear it as a badge of shame. Until God revealed to me why. The person was able to mask themselves in the presence of others. With me, I was able to see beyond the mask I was able to see how they truly were.
I speak with a lot of people regarding their relationships, situationships, ,friendships etc., and they all say the same thing. It’s not me, it’s them. They’re disturbing my peace. NO-it’s you. You’re disturbing your own peace by refusing to address the unhealed parts. Are you truly at peace? Is there something that is causing you to feel moved (in a negative way)by what someone has said or done? If so, you still have some healing to do. Your peace cannot find you, while your busying yourself giving it away to others.
