Our neighbours have just listed their house for sale. They have lived here for less than two years but they have never seemed to be at peace. I don’t think that a change of housing is going to bring them peace because as far as I know they are not Christians.
What does the bible say on the subject of inner peace? The section below is from Got Questions.org
A word often translated “peace” in the Bible actually means “to tie together as a whole, when all essential parts are joined together.” Inner peace, then, is a wholeness of mind and spirit, a whole heart at rest. Inner peace has little to do with external surroundings. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” He had also told His followers that “in this world you will have many troubles. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). So peace is not the absence of trouble; it is the presence of God.
