Never Act Without Peace — A Quote by Joyce Meyer in “How to Hear from God”

“Even when you believe God has spoken to you, you should wait until peace fills your soul to do what He has instructed you to do. In this way you are assured your timing is right — plus peace is true confirmation that you are hearing from God… We should never act without peace. One might say that peace is an ‘internal confirmation’ that action being taken is approved by God: ‘An let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all question that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state]…’ (Colossians 3:15, AMPL)…”

“Beware of false peace… [which] comes from excitement. As time passes, this false peace disappears, and God’s true will emerges for our lives. For this reason we should never move too quickly on important decisions.”

— Joyce Meyer in “How to Hear from God”, pp 81-83
