Portions by Joyce Meyer –
Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Many people cannot hear from God because they have too much turmoil in their lives. Their insides are like a freeway during rush-hour traffic. They literally don’t know how to be peaceful; it is as if they are addicted to turmoil. They keep things agitated and stirred up, seemingly on purpose. In fact, they get comfortable living in a state of chaos. It has become their normal state, even though in God’s economy it is not normal at all.
We need to learn how to be addicted to peace. I pray that you become so hungry for peace with God, peace with yourself, and peace with others that you will be willing to make whatever adjustments you need to make in order to have it, because peace will lead you into the perfect will of God.
Get Addicted to Peace!
