You Can Have Perfect Peace.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. “(John 14:27; KJV) The word peace here is a beautiful all-encompassing word meaning the perfect peace and confidence that comes with our salvation. Confident in our relationship with God and our eternal life, no matter what our situation is or what is happening around us in this world.

This peace is so different from what the world can offer; the world can only speak hollow words of wishing and hoping. God can actually give us peace. Our peace is a part of salvation, a fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22). The world maybe in turmoil around us but we can walk in God’s peace.

We will not have this peace passively by just laying back and waiting for it. As with all of our Christian walk, we have to do our part. In Psalm 199 and verse 165 we note that we will have great peace if we love God’s law (word). In Isaiah 26:3 we see that if we focus our minds on God and trust him, he will keep us in his perfect peace.

So, like every aspect of our walk with God we need to be in his word, building our faith and then his peace will envelope and surround us. Search the Bibles for verses on peace, meditate them. The battle is in the mind. Renew your mind in God’s word (Rom 12:2). Let the Prince of peace (Isa 9:6) bring you to inner stillness and peace: “Be still and know that I am God” (Ps 46:10).

Meditate God’s word today and allow him to bring that peace and stillness to your inner being. 

God's Peace

“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:6-7; KJV).

We all get to worrying from time to time, but the apostle Paul tells us we don’t need to. He tells us to let our heavenly Father know our needs and requests, trust him and thank him for the answers. We need to allow God’s peace to overwhelm us and keep us through Christ Jesus.

In 1 Peter, chapter 5 and verses 6 and 7 we read: “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (KJV). If we approach our God humbly, we are told we can cast our cares on him and he will take care of them.  Jesus not only bore our sicknesses and carried our pains but he was scourged that we could have peace (Isa 53:4-5).

The definition of the word salvation in the Greek contains; forgiveness, deliverance, rescue, liberation, release, restoration, safety, healing, prosperity, preservation, soundness, happiness and general well-being.  What’s left to worry about?  Give it all to Jesus today and enjoy his peace of mind.

Peace

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let your heart be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27; KJV). The word for “peace” here is “eirene” which means; a state of tranquility, rest and confidence in our relationship with Christ Jesus no matter what is happening around us.

Notice that Jesus leaves us his peace but we have a part to play too. We must not allow agitation, anxiety or permit fear. 1 Peter 3:11 says that we must search for peace and seek it eagerly. Seek in this context is not passive but means an active, aggressive and persistent search.

Isaiah wrote that if we truly trust God and keep our focus on him, we can enjoy his perfect peace (Isa 26:3). The writer of Psalm 119 put it a little differently in writing that if we loved God’s word, we would enjoy great peace (Ps 119:165).

The Bible also says that God is our peace and we must allow it to: "rule in our hearts" (Col. 3:15). If that is the case then to enjoy this peace, we need to meditate on it, confess it and believe it.
