Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

John 14:27 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.

Philippians 4:7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Obviously, based on these three scriptures, drama and chaos are not God’s will for our lives. This peace, we’re meant to have, can be received by faith. The same way we exercise our faith for a new job or a car is the same way we need to exercise our faith for peace.

So, if we find ourselves in a situation where we’re surrounded by drama, we need to ask ourselves a few questions.

  1. Are we truly in faith for peace? Faith and doubt can operate in the same space. We can desire peace, but if we doubt that we’ll have peace between our spouse, our supervisor, or our children based on the situation, we won’t have peace.
  2. Are we participants of drama? The Holy Spirit, Who should be leading our lives, is telling us when to keep silent, when to submit, and when to pray for those who are attempting to cause drama in our lives. If we’re not heeding the voice of the Holy Spirit, we’re participating in drama.
  3. Do we trust God? A lot of drama is self-inflicted. Some of us are worried about this or that and we’re not placing our trust in God. If we can cast our cares on the Lord and trust that He can handle the situation, we can live a peaceful life.

Receive the peace that Jesus’ blood provided. It’s ours and anything that’s not of peace is not the will of God.
