God is a God of peace; He wants us to enjoy His peace in our own lives. Life has many interrelated moving parts, and whether we dominate it, or let it dominate us, depends on our emotional state of mind. God has already made peace available to us. Therefore, when we encounter situations that threaten to trigger negative emotions, we will know how to access this peace and stay in control of our feelings. This is not to say that stressful or unpleasant things will not happen to us. They will, but God has given us a way to deal with them and remain peaceful. His Word on how to use peace to master our emotions gives us the upper hand.
