People generally don’t like problems or storms in their life. They want everything to go smoothly, but it rarely does; finding someone who is able to bring peace to their storm is of great value and those peacemakers who solve client storms, will be thought to be the offspring of God (Mat 5:9). It is important to bring peace to your prospects and customers, but as the saying goes, “You can’t export what you don’t have.”
Peace begets peace just like agitation begets agitation. You must determine to find the place of peace before you engage the client. And for that, you will have to go to war. Not against flesh and blood, but against all those spiritual forces which try to keep you out of peace. Why do they fight you so? Because the best decisions are made from a position of inner peace and the worst are often made during a lack of peace.
The Bible teaches in Proverbs 3:17 that all the paths of wisdom are peace. If you want the wisdom of God, it will be found on the path of peace. How often we get off the path of peace. And don’t our children or spouses or coworkers or even clients know it? Find the path of peace and you will have wisdom enough for all your clients, friends and family too.
Jesus said, “In your patience, possess your souls”. So how do you find the path of peace? You must choose it with perseverance and determination. You know what peace is; Fight to obtain that. The writer of Hebrews said, “Labor to enter the rest.” It’s the hardest work you will ever do and perhaps the most rewarding; for in that place, you will find everything else you need for life and business.
