Have you ever wondered what the Bible says about peace of mind? Or what scripture talks about keeping your mind in perfect peace?
I’m sure you have. And I have too.
That’s because stress and anxiety fill our minds every day. All of the things we have to do pile up until we’re completely overwhelmed by them.
But in this Bible Study on peace of mind, we’ll read the Bible verse from Isaiah 26:3 and discover 4 Easy Steps to Peace of Mind.
When Peace of Mind doesn’t come easily
We all want peace of mind. And we all want to feel like we have stability and a safety net just in case we need it. But peace of mind is a mystery that few of us have figured out.
It seems like we are always in the pursuit of it and somehow, peace of mind eludes us. Instead of peace and tranquility, our lives are filled with turmoil and stress.
Maybe that’s because we are looking for peace in the wrong places.
The world tells us that peace of mind comes from money and success. If we work harder and run ourselves ragged, maybe we will find peace of mind and some security to fall back on.
If we can’t find it in our work, then we could try some crazy eastern religion, chanting, standing on one leg and putting burning, hot rocks all over our body. Maybe then we’ll see peace of mind manifest itself.
And we might, just might, find a little bit of peace in these worldly things. But the peace the world offers won’t last long. As soon as another stressful event happens, we’ll be right back where we started in the first place.
But when peace of mind doesn’t come easily, instead of turning ourselves into workaholics or new age gurus, we have another option available to us. One that will actually give us the peace of mind we’re looking for.
How to Find Peace of Mind
The Bible is very clear about where peace comes from and how to get peace of mind in life.
So, today instead of looking for peace in the world, let’s examine the scriptures and discover how to find true and lasting peace of mind.
Here are four easy steps to peace of mind in your life today.
Bible Verse for Peace of Mind
#1 Know where peace comes from…
You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in you.
The meaning of this scripture is simple. Perfect peace only comes from Jesus.
And that means, if we know Jesus, we know peace. Because He is peace itself.
When we put our trust in the Prince of Peace and focus on Him continually, we will find the perfect peace that only comes from knowing Him. And experience the promise given in this verse… you will keep him in perfect peace.
If perfect peace is what you’re looking for, the answer is to keep your mind on Jesus and the truth of who He is.
Jesus and Peace of Mind
#2 Understand that peace from Jesus is different…
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
This Bible verse gives us an explanation of the difference between God’s peace and the world’s peace.
The world says if we want peace, we will find it in ourselves. Either by achieving our goals and aspirations or through other religions.
This type of peace only takes us farther away from the truth of who Jesus is and leaves us feeling empty. Because the things the world offers, like money and meditation, only serve to distract and confuse us.
But the perfect peace of Jesus is different from anything we can find on our own. It takes us directly to the heart of who Jesus is and gives us abundant joy even in the face of adversity.
The peace of Jesus takes away fear, confusion, worry, and anxiety and gives us the safety net we are looking for. His peace sets our minds at ease and gives us a safe place to rest.
Now, that’s a special kind of peace! (I will both lie down in peace, and sleep: For you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. Ps 4:8)
Finding Peace and Inner Calm with God’s Help
#3 Give your anxieties to God…
casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
This one easy step to peace with God changes everything!
It’s true, worry is bound to catch up with us at some point.
But the message of this scripture says… when worry catches up with us, we can take those anxieties to God because He cares about everything going on in our lives.
The big, earth-shattering things that cause doubt and fear to rise up inside of us. And the little day-to-day worries we experience too.
Whatever roadblocks are preventing us from having the peace of mind we desire, God wants to hear about it. And He wants to lift that burden from us and give us lasting inner peace.
So, take your worries to Him because He cares for you.
Peace of Christ
#4 Let peace rule your heart…
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts…
Sometimes we stand in the way of our own peace of mind. We allow stress to rule our lives without even realizing it.
But once we make the choice to let the peace of Christ rule our hearts and minds, He takes over and shows us a peace we never knew existed before.
The stress of day-to-day life and the overwhelming turmoil we face no longer affect us.
Not because these things don’t happen anymore, of course, they do. But those stresses don’t threaten to derail us anymore because we have the true peace of Christ within us.
If we let it, the peace of Christ will fill our hearts to the brim!
A Prayer for Peace of Mind
Peace of mind may seem elusive. But if we know where to look, we can easily find it.
Instead of running from place to place in an endless search, we can choose to focus on the One who can bring peace into our lives for good. We can simply be in the presence of Jesus and experience His perfect peace. Because real peace comes from knowing Him.
If you’re looking for peace of mind today, my prayer for you is you’ll turn to the Prince of Peace and allow Him to fill your heart with peace, love, and joy.
May God bless you and give you peace of mind today!

It’s so true that it’s often ME that gets in the way of peace – God’s way is peace and I need to get in His way. Beautiful work and words and ministry!
