Joel Osteen

Christians must fight against “peace stealers” to maintain a state of rest within the Lord, Joel Osteen says.

Osteen, who heads Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, wrote in a recent blog post that while the Bible encourages Christians to “enter into the rest of God,” it can become a daily struggle to maintain internal peace when we encounter so many new challenges.

Therefore, Christians have to fight daily to maintain their peace, not allowing “peace stealers” to cause them a life of stress and grief.

“There will always be people and circumstances trying to pull you out of peace. If you’re going to live in peace, you have to put up some boundaries,” Osteen writes.
