Calming Bible Verses about Peace

Calming Bible Verses about Peace

Do you struggle with worry, fear, or doubt? Do you feel like your life is one catastrophe after another? Do you think peace is something that’s only talked about in church or those feel-good movies on TV?

Yeah… I feel ya!

In our society, peace is a fleeting feeling, here one minute and gone the next. The world tells us we just need a mini-vacay, a shopping spree, or a pedicure and then we’ll have the peace we’re after. Believe me, I love a girl’s day out as much as anyone, but these things will only distract us for a short time. Eventually, life catches up with us and we’re right back where we started, stressed out, and knee-deep in chaos.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. A solution to all of the negativity is out there, and it can be yours if you want it.

God gives us peace, real peace. It’s different from the peace the world offers, and it doesn’t cost a dime!

Fear and worry threaten to tear us apart from the inside out. But they don’t stand a chance against God’s peace! It calms the chaos life throws our way. And it slays the beast of worry, fear, and doubt.

If we want to find God’s peace all we need to do is turn to the scriptures. So, I decided to put together some Calming Bible Verses about Peace. Once you read them, you’ll understand how God’s peace is the opposite of the world’s. You’ll begin to see His peace take shape in your life. And soon, the struggle of worry, fear, and doubt will fade away as you discover real and lasting peace is only a prayer away.

Let’s dive in, shall we?…

The Peace of Jesus

Jesus is called the Prince of Peace for a reason. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, and Peace itself! When life is anything but peaceful and chaos is the reigning force in our lives… He says “Peace, be still”, and calms the raging storm. This is the peace that only comes from knowing Jesus and you can find it in these verses.

 

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

                                     Isaiah 9:6

 

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

                                   John 14:27

 

 

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

                                John 16:33  

 

 

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

                                 Philippians 4:6-7

 

 

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.

                                   Colossians 3:15

 

 

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

                                   Mark 4:39

Live in Peace

God blesses us peace, and He asks us to live in peace with others.

Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

                                 James 3:18

 

 

Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.

Powerful Bible Verses about Grace

What does the Bible say about grace? And what is the meaning of grace? These Powerful Bible Verses about Grace give us the answers.

Grace is a word that gets thrown around a lot in Christian circles. Theologians and other “smart people” spend countless hours debating the concept of grace. And because there are so many scriptures on grace, it’s a topic that deserves discussion. But grace is not just for theologians to debate. It’s something for every believer, not only to understand but to possess.

When I think of grace, I see in my mind a beautiful ballerina taking the stage. Her hair is pulled up in the perfect ballet bun, her organza and tulle tutu frames her body just right and her pirouette is on pointe, y’all. The way she turns and spins and jumps through the air, oh, what grace! And she is graceful! But this type of grace is different from Biblical grace.

So, what exactly is grace? Hint… it’s not the prayer we say before a meal. Although, it’s always a good idea to thank God for everything He’s given to us.

Instead, grace is God’s favor bestowed on those who believe in His Son, Jesus. It is the power of God to freely forgive our sin even though we don’t deserve it. That seems simple enough, and really it is.

So together, let’s dive deep into these powerful Bible verses about grace and answer this question…

What does the Bible say about grace? And discover the full meaning of grace in our lives.

God’s grace gives us salvation.

There is nothing we can do to earn salvation. We just don’t have the power to save ourselves. But that’s okay because God has given us a way to be saved. His grace and mercy were poured out through His Son, our Savior on the cross. And these scriptures on grace attest to the fact that faith in Jesus and the free gift of grace combined are the one thing that has the power to give us salvation. Grace is yours if you choose to accept Jesus as your Savior. He is the One and only way to grace and forgiveness of sin.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

                                               Ephesians 2:8-9

 

who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,

                                              2 Timothy 1:9

For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

                                              John 1:17

 

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.

                                             Ephesians 1:7

 

not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

                                             Titus 3:3-7

God gives us grace upon grace

Thankfully, grace, God’s favor, is not a one-and-done proposition. We receive His grace continually, daily in fact. The more we need grace, the more God gives it to us.

 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says:

“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”

                                            James 4:6

 

  And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.

 

                                           John 1:16

 

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

                                          2 Corinthians 9:8

 

Jesus said My grace is sufficient for you

What power does grace give us?

We all know hard times will surely come our way. And we may feel weak and powerless when they do. But Jesus told us My grace is sufficient for you, It’s His grace that gives us strength and power to continue on. As the children’s hymn, Jesus Loves Me, says, “They are weak, but He is strong.”

 

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

                                            2 Corinthians 12:9

 

 

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

                                          Hebrews 4:16

 

But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

                                        1 Peter 5:10

 

We can grow in grace and watch it blossom in our lives.

God’s grace is given to us the minute we know Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior. And there’s nothing that can take grace away from us. But each day that we live with Jesus, we learn more about Him and His character. We go deeper into grace, grow in it, and learn more from it. Grace takes root in our hearts and we see it blossom in our lives. As we see in these Bible verses about grace it simply becomes a part of who we are as believers.

but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.

                                           2 Peter 3:18

 

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

                                           Titus 2:11-14

 

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord…

                                          2 Peter 1:2

The Meaning of Grace

I hope these powerful Bible verses about grace have given you a place to start thinking about the meaning of grace in your life. God has so much He wants to give to you. I pray that you will accept it and grow in grace and knowledge. To Him be the glory! Blessings to you!

Precious Bible Verses for Mother’s Day

Precious Bible Verses for Mother's Day

It’s the time of year we set aside to celebrate the most precious woman in our lives… our Mother. She’s the one who brought us into this world and made us the person we are today.

My mother was a strong independent career woman. The very definition of a modern-day Proverbs 31 woman. But she was more than that to me. She was my best friend and confidant. The person I could always turn to no matter what. She listened patiently to all of my problems, secrets, and dreams. She held me close when I hurt and gave me the nickname “Precious”. Because that’s what I was to her and she was never afraid to let me know it. She was also a lot of fun and had a way of turning everyday things into a game. She was an amazing lady who loved her children and put us above herself.

But her greatest gift to me and my brother was her love for the Lord. She was a gifted Bible teacher, sharing her knowledge in Sunday school classes, Wednesday night Precept meetings, family gatherings, and most importantly in our own home. What a blessing it was to grow up in a house where I was taught the Word of God every single day!

This is where we begin our look at Precious Bible Verses for Mother’s Day! There’s something here for everyone. So, let’s dive in an learn what God has to say about Mother.

 

A Mother’s Teaching

A mother’s most important job is to teach her children to love and respect the Lord. This instruction is the foundation of a child’s faith. It stays with them when they are grown and follows them wherever they go. It truly is the most precious gift a mother could give her child.

My son, keep your father’s command
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Bind them always on your heart;
fasten them around your neck.
When you walk, they will guide you;
when you sleep, they will watch over you;
when you awake, they will speak to you.

                                              Proverbs 6:20-22

 

Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
They are a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.

                                             Proverbs 1:8-9

 

Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

                                           Proverbs 22:6

 

Honor Your Father and Mother

As you’ll read in just a few seconds, honoring your parents is the very first of the Ten Commandments with a promise. Respect your mother and father and in return, God will give you a long and successful life. This promise builds strong, godly families and shows the faith of all who live in your household. No One represented this commandment better than Jesus Himself. As He faced the cross, He remembered His precious mother and made sure she would be cared for in His absence.

Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

                                               Deuteronomy 5:16

 

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”

                                                 Ephesians 6:1-3

 

 Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

                                                Exodus 20:12

 

When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

                                                John 19:26-27

Blessed

Proverbs 31 tells the tale of a virtuous woman. Her most precious characteristic is recognized when her children see all she has done to keep the home running smoothly, her family feed, and God first in her life. Then they honor her and call her blessed!

Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:

                                                Proverbs 31:28

 

Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

                                             Proverbs 31:31

 

 And Mary said:

“My soul glorifies the Lord
     and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
   for he has been mindful

    of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,

                                                Luke 1:46-48

 

 

The Joys of Motherhood

 

God lovingly created each one of us. He knew us before we were born. And His greatest joy is in His children. This is the same joy God gives to mothers everywhere. The knowledge of their precious unborn child growing inside of them. The sweet face of their newborn baby as they hold them for the first time. Gently guiding them along life’s path. And seeing them follow the Lord with all their heart. These are the joys of Motherhood.

 

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

                                             Psalm 139:13

 

May your father and mother rejoice;
may she who gave you birth be joyful!

                                              Proverbs 23:25

 

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
and have no compassion on the child she has borne?
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!

                                              Isaiah 49:15

 

A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.

                                              John 16:21

 

 

Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.

                                              Psalm 127:3

 

 

Children’s children are a crown to the aged,
and parents are the pride of their children.

                                             Proverbs 17:6

 

When Mother’s Day is Hard

Mother’s Day isn’t always a happy event. Sometimes it’s downright hard. Maybe you’ve lost your mom like me. Or you struggle with infertility and the deep desire to be a mom yourself. God has words of comfort for you on this difficult day.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

                                              Psalm 34:18

 

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

                                              Matthew 5:4

 

For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.  Therefore I also have lent him to the Lord; as long as he lives he shall be lent to the Lord.” So they worshiped the Lord there.

                                            1 Samuel 1:27-28

 

He settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.

                                              Psalm 113:9
