The only way to have lasting peace in this troubled world is to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of peace. He said in His Word, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” John 14: 27.

This presupposed that there is the peace of the world, very different from the peace that the Lord gives. Of course, we know that the world has no lasting peace. So seek the peace that only the Lord Jesus Christ can give you – Shalom (Peace with prosperity).
