I'll just share with you the notes I made as I meditated on the verses about "peace":

Effects of peace: prevents stumbling, gives life, keeps my heart from being troubled or fearful, guards my heart (emotions) and mind (thoughts).

Causes of peace: loving God's law, trusting in God; peace does NOT come from the world, peace is IN HIM, in the knowledge that in the end, HE WINS. It is a FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT (not humanly generated).

Prerequisites for peace: steadfastness, purity, fleeing evil, conscious pursuit. In the world IS TROUBLE. God's peace is INCOMPREHENSIBLE. - Lori
