"For a long time Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law; but when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them. And in those times there was no peace to the one who went out, nor to the one who came in, but great turmoil was on all the inhabitants of the lands." - 2 Chronicles 15:3-5 (NKJV)
Bible Reading: Zephaniah 1:1-18, 2 Chronicles 15:3-8, Psalm 40:8, Jonah 3:1-10, Daniel 1:8, Matthew 6:33, Zephaniah 2: 1-2, Philippians 4:9
Our society is in a drought. We are lacking teaching priests and not yielding to God's law but yet we want peace.
God's laws help us to understand his will and purpose for our life. In the absence of God's law, there is no peace. When you loose your peace, you have loose everything. It does not matter where you find yourself, you cannot have peace of mind if you are not living within the will of God.
When you loose your peace, you must repent, pray, be calm, seek God first, work to glorify God's name and be ready to make sacrifices of praise to Him. Be determined to serve and trust him. Without God, you cannot know peace.
