Psalm 37:37 – Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; for the future of that man is peace (NKJV).
Another version says to keep your eye on the healthy soul (MSG). A healthy soul is one that embraces righteousness and walks in the God-kind of love. He is a person of integrity and one who fully obeys God’s word. Peace is in his future.
The adverse of this principle is also true. If you live recklessly and are untrustworthy, your life will be marked by instability. In other words, the choices you make control whether peace is in your future or not.
Nobody and nothing else can be blamed for the lack of peace you may be experiencing right now. Jesus already did everything necessary for you to have perfect peace at all times. In fact, He gave you His personal peace, and it’s up to you whether you walk in it or not.
Be an honorable person, and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit before making decisions. Then it will be well with your soul.
Isaiah 32:17 — The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever (NKJV).
