During a zombie attack, it’s really easy to be anxious. Zombies want your brain, and you probably would like to keep it for yourself. Yes, you have to think about physical stuff like, “Where’s the shotgun,” and “aim for the head,” but beneath all situations is a spiritual level.
Your situation could be: loneliness, job, finances, health, whatever. Just think of something where you are not at peace.
So how do you get peace?
First, let’s first say that just because you’re not anxious about anything doesn’t mean that you have a real spiritual peace. You might be finding ‘peace’ because you’re not going through anything difficult. You have ‘peace’ because your job pays well and you have financial stability — placing faith in your job. You might have ‘peace’ because your boyfriend bought you the 27 Dresses DVD and it doesn’t look like he’ll be leaving you — putting faith in someone else. Not being anxious about something doesn’t mean you have spiritual peace. To find real peace, it must be based in God.
Great — so what? — what does that mean?
If anything is based in God, it must be based in God’s Word or else you could just be making stuff up. I have peace because I think God said somewhere in the Bible, “Blessed are the good-looking Asian Americans for they cannot be harmed during zombie attacks.”
You have to be able to point to something God has actually said if you are to have a real peace.
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Ah! There’s a promise God made. I can point to that verse and go, “Hey, I believe that promise.” Now think of the things that make you anxious and replace “in all things” with your situation…
And we know that during zombie attacks God works for the good of those who love him. And we know that during times where I am single God works… And we know that during this time of unemployment God works… And we know that during this persecution I’m going though God works…
Peace is a decision you make. Peace is really having faith in God’s promises.
Phillipians 4:6-7  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Take Time to Pray: Ask God to help you go to His promises when you aren’t feeling peace.
