The Lord greeted Gideon in peace, so he built an altar and named it "The LORD is Peace." (See Judges 6:23-24.) You have probably heard the blessing "Shalom" from Jewish friends and acquaintances. It means peace. More importantly, it means the Lord, our peace. Where does the Shepherd lead His sheep? Beside the peaceful, still waters. "He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters" (Psalm 23:2). When your heart is content, you are at peace. And where does that contentment come from? The grace of God. There's no man more discontent than one who is not experiencing the amazing grace of God. Only in Jesus, will you find security, sufficiency, and serenity.
