How can I discern between the peace of God and the peace that the world gives us?
[#2 Q2] In Philippians 4:7, Paul talks about the peace of God. In John 14:27, the Lord refers to the peace of the world. In my experience, sometimes I have peace about something, but I haven’t really prayed about it that much. Is that real peace? How can we discern between the Lord’s peace and a natural peace, or a peace that the world gives us?
