Praying for 'perfect peace'

Throughout the world people are yearning for peace. And not just stability in some areas and war in others—what we are really looking for might be called “perfect peace.” What would perfect peace look like? How would we recognize it?

The Bible promises, “Thou [God] wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” (Isaiah 26:3). To have our mind stayed on God means to have our consciousness so filled with thoughts of God that there is no room for anything else. We see the world and all that is in it in the way God sees it. And how does God see the world? The first chapter of Genesis concludes, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” (verse 31). With this good view there isn’t room for conflict, discord, or war.
