Peace like a river!

Doing the right thing and walking in God's ways brings peace like a river.

The next line in that scripture refers to your righteousness would be like the waves of the sea if you obey God. I take that to mean 'unstopable', when you are in right standing with God, your righteousness is unstopable, and controlled by God, 'tide and time wait for no man',

Isaiah 48:18 New King James Version

18 Oh, that you had heeded My commandments!

Then your peace would have been like a river,

And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Peace and righteousness are a reward from God for obeying His commands, and what does Jesus say these commands are, love God and love one another.

Matthew 22:35-40 New King James Version

35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
