God guides us through our relationship with Him. He fulfills that responsibility by giving us incredible freedom within a few boundaries. Peace is one of those boundaries. “And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts,” says Colossians 3:15. Peace is our umpire in the game of life. Peace lets us know when we’re in danger of striking out, or when we’ve hit a home run.

Using peace as an umpire in our life makes perfect sense when we consider that the foundation of our relationship with God is peace and rest. Christians should be the most peaceful people on the planet because we’re intimately connected to the Prince of Peace. Peace, therefore, should be a by-product of our lives. Peace empowers our sensitivity. It enables us to wait patiently and listen.
