What is peace? First, peace at any cost is not real peace. Yes, we forgive evil people and governments that do evil things to us. But where we forgive them is important. We forgive them within ourselves. We forgive, but we don't forget. There is an important distinction between inner and outer peace. People are always looking for peace in the world around them. But peace is found inside you by knowing that whatever happens, Creator has a plan. We may not understand it. But that is because we do not have the same vision as the Creator. Creator sees with eyes that are timeless and universal. We see what is just now happening. Creator sees the final outcome. We see only the momentary situations. If you get lost in the moment, you will never find peace. That does not mean that we do not act to fight evil. No.
The saying is true "People should not fear their governments. Governments should fear their people," not because we are violent, but because we are spiritually strong inside ourselves. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty, because we do not fight flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. heavenly realms is the spirit world for those who don't understand. These are not my words the come from the one those who call themselves Christians say they follow. But they are no less wise.
We fight ideas and ideology that is evil, not matter what banner they fall under. And we take every thought captive that is evil. But we do our battle not by becoming violent and evil and carrying physical weapons to attack. No, we have strong spirit and strength of character to win the battles before they become physical. And our strong spirit is the creator that lives within us.
