Wisdom Brings Peace

Peace always comes with wisdom. You cannot receive wisdom without peace. The wisdom of God and the peace of God are always joined together. Peace always confirms wisdom. If you receive God's wisdom, peace is the sure witness.

Peace will never be found where wisdom is absent. "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable" (James 3:17). When you receive the wisdom of God, you likewise receive the peace of God.

In making the decisions of your life, let peace point you to the right way. Peace is your friend. Without peace, be warned. You are about to make a bad decision. Peace is God's witness to your heart, that you have found the right decision.

Your logic may or may not be right. Peace is never wrong, because peace is a fruit of God's Spirit. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace" (Galatians 5:22). You see that peace has two other friends, love and joy. They are all witnesses to wisdom.

When you have a decision to make, ask God for wisdom. He will give you wisdom to make the right decision. As you consider your decision, always let peace have the final word. The God of all peace with never lead you astray. He will lead you in the right path. Peace will walk with you. "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts" (Colossians 3:15).
