Psalm 85:8 ” I will listen to what God the Lord will say; He promises peace to His people, His saints – but let them not return to folly.”

In John 14:27 Jesus said, ” Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.” And as Believers, we can attest to this kind of peace…the safety and security found within our relationship with Jesus Christ. But this verse warns us of returning to folly…so what does that look like? Anytime we allow fear and doubt to overtake our mind and emotions we’re returning to folly. At that point, we’re not being ruled by peace and righteousness but rather by anxiety and wrong thinking…and God’s peace is far from us. So listen to what Paul wrote in II Thessalonians 3:16 and take it to heart the next time fear and doubt tries to overwhelm you and rob you of your peace, “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way.”
