Peace and War at the Same Time

Does faith give you peace?

Luther:

Inwardly yes, but from the outside not quite. With ‘inwardly’ I do not mean that I always really experience a feeling of peace, but an invisible peace by faith. Because the peace of God exceeds all intellect and can only be understood in faith. When you know this peace inwardly, you have no peace externally. When you do what God wants, you go against what the devil, the world and also yourself want. When it is good to God, it is bad to the world. These are always connected to each other: on the outside war, inwardly peace.
