Is there peace for the wicked?


“There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked.” Isaiah 48:22
            God’s word says no, but it seems that some wicked people are very assured and relaxed.  It may appear that way, but they aren’t experiencing true peace.  Some powerful drug cartel leaders or terrorists may have a good life of wealth and many servants, but they are always looking over their shoulders.  They may cover up their lack of peace with an abundance of pleasure (sex, drinking, drugs) to make them feel good and hide their fear.
            The lack of fear is true peace and only the one doing God’s will can experience that.  Peace with God, being right with him, following his commands, is the only path to real peace.
