Full Armor of God:Peace
Have you been angry? Angry so much that you cannot have peace? When we experience the anguish that consumes us, then we understand what peace means after our anguish or anger is subsided. Have we really thought about how much we be angry if we were God who watches over us and see what is really going on? We really cannot blame God what kind evil is going on in this world. We will appreciate God is being patient with us.
Peace is not something we can manufacture it.
What sustains us when we are wronged is the love of God. His enduring love sustains us and gives us peace. When God dwells in us, we can have peace. Ultimately, Good News gives us peace within ourselves and with others. We can study just the word “peace” for months. The word, “peace” in Hebrew is shalom, the root word is “shalem”.
"An interesting finding from is that “shalem” is used of the whole (i.e. uncut) stones for the altar (Deut 27:, Josh 8:31) and also of the dressed stones used for the temple (I Kings 6:7) " Harris, R. L., Harris, R. L., Archer, G. L., & Waltke, B. K. Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament (Chicago: Moody Press, 1999) 931.
