What does a lack of peace feel like? How do I know if I'm lacking peace? In this post, I discuss the difference between God's peace and counterfeit peace.
What is False Peace?
False peace is a false feeling of relief and it happens when we attempt to create our own peace with the temporary peace that the world has to offer. It will make you feel good and excited for a moment, but after a while, it will wear off. In my own life, I have tried many methods to find peace, including alcohol. I would feel better for a while, but as soon as something challenged that peace, I would lose it.
What is God's Peace?
God's peace is able to take away any way of thinking that would normally lead you to worry. God will give you peace through a situation that should've driven you crazy. This peace remains even when it feels like things might not work out for you, no matter what that situation is. This is why the scripture says this peace transcends all understanding.
God's Peace can only come through a relationship with Him
In order to gain God's peace, you will need to have a real relationship with Him. You can't have God and have the world at the same time.
14 Signs You Have A Lack of Peace

Mild or Severe Emotional Breakdowns
Tormenting thoughts or Dreams
Consumed with worry
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 NIV
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 NIV
