It is a living organism that is never quite the same as you remembered.

But here he says the God of peace will be with you. That's even better! You get peace because you have the God of peace . Bible Verses About Peace. Proverbs “When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Isaiah “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” John “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.
