“But there is no peace for the wicked.”

Image of an etching by artist William Strutt in 1896. Isaiah 11:6,7: The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Lately, I have been seeking peace. Peaceful places, people, and things that promote peace.

Ask yourself whether everything you seek promotes peace. Are your friends peaceful people? Do you get attached to peaceful places? Are you content with your things?

God was black and white as Isaiah revealed in 48:22 God’s view on peace. Peace is the hallmark of righteousness and is not found with the wicked.

Yet, this peace goes beyond a superficial peace to incorporate eternal peace. Eternally, we often fail at peace. We are greedy. We want to control situations. We want our cake and eat it too. Yet, we are not willing to work for eternity, worship God, and clean up the turmoil in our lives.

We are all wicked when the pursuit of peace is ignored.
