In 2 Thessalonians 3:16 Paul prays that, “the Lord of peace himself give you peace ALWAYS by all means.” (Emphasis mine). People who can ride through the toughest issues of life and remain calm are not indifferent to their circumstances: they are just trusting God. Isaiah 26:3 reminds us that, “[God] will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: (reason) because he trusts in you.” Our peace is established by trusting in the Lord for our salvation and obeying His Word. As we are obedient, we are reminded that whatever God permits to come into our is beneficial for our growth and development as a person. Knowing that God is using all the difficulties we face to mature us will enable us to live in peace, because we can understand that there is a reason and purpose fo all the things that are permitted to enter our lives. Living according to God’s revealed standards of righteousness brings us peace.
