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. The solution to all of the negativity is out there, and it can be yours if you want it.

Finding peace isn’t as hard as you might think. It’s found in the encouraging scriptures on peace in the Bible and given to us by our loving Heavenly Father for the hard times we face every day.

While fear and worry threaten to tear us apart from the inside out, they don’t stand a chance against the peace of God!

His peace calms the storm of life and slays the beast of worry, fear, and doubt.

If we want to find the peace of God 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 peace.

You’ll start to see His peace take shape in your life. And soon, the worry, fear, and doubt will fade away as you discover real and lasting peace is only a prayer away.

Live at Peace

What does it mean to live in peace? The Bible Verses below give us a clear message about how to live at peace with everyone.

I know it can seem like we have no control over a peaceful existence with our neighbors. But we always have a choice between stirring up conflict or working towards harmony.

In the heat of the moment, God says to offer an olive branch instead of a curt reply and to choose peace over adversity.

Here’s what the Bible says about living in peace…

 

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.                              

                                 Romans 12:18 NIV

Let him seek peace and pursue it.

                                 1 Peter 3:11

But counselors of peace have joy.

                                  Proverbs 12:20

 

 

Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.

                                 Romans 14:19 NKJV

 

 

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.

4 Easy Steps to Peace of Mind – Isaiah 26:3

4 Easy Steps to Peace of Mind Isaiah 26:3

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.

                                 Isaiah 26:3 NKJV

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.                                  

                                   John 14:27 NIV

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.                                  

                                1 Peter 5:7 ESV

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…

                                   Colossians 3:15 NIV

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!

Peace of Christ – Colossians 3:15

Peace of Christ Colossians 3:15

What does the Bible say about the peace of Christ?

The peace of Christ is more than a concept we learn about in church. It’s something we can feel deep in our hearts every day. In this devotional, we’ll read the scripture from Colossians 3:15 and discover how to let the peace of Christ rule in your heart today.

Finding Peace in Chaos

The alarm goes off and immediately I’m struck with a feeling of dread. There’s so much to get done today and not enough time to do it all. Stress takes over and fills my heart with worry.

We’re all running the race against the clock. With all of the responsibilities we have, there never seems to be enough hours in the day.

Work, school, and church obligations. Finding time to spend with family and friends. The emergency that pops up in the middle of an already busy day. Plus, a million other little things. They all add up and take a piece of our peace away from us.

Somehow, we manage to get most of it done. Maybe not everything, but the most important priorities get checked off the to-do list. The rest will be waiting for us tomorrow when we do it all over again.

Does this sound like your life? Are you at the end of your rope? Are you wondering how you’re going to make it through yet another crazy, busy day?

There’s a better way.

Instead of a stressful day filled with chaos, we can have a peaceful day filled with the peace of Christ.

There is Peace in Christ

When it’s crunch time, peace may be the last thing on our minds. But at the end of the day, peace is what we want to find.

So, how can we find peace? The answer is found in the message of this popular Bible Verse…

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.

                                         Colossians 3:15 NIV

I’ve read this verse a thousand times over the years. And you would think the meaning would be simple to spot.

I guess I focused solely on the word, peace instead of where to find it. And I should have been looking at the One who gives us peace in the first place. Because there is peace in Christ and in a loving relationship with Him.

What rules your heart?

When I read Colossians 3:15 this time around, God whispered something that hit me like a ton of bricks. “What rules your heart?”

Unfortunately, for me, the answer always seems to be stress and worry. I guess I’m a bit of a worrywart.

But the truth is, worry gets us nowhere fast. It makes me feel like a hamster on a wheel with no way off. And the worst part is, all the stress and worry rob us of the lasting peace of Christ.

But instead of making us feel worse than we already do, God wants to show us how to let go of the worry and experience the peace of Christ in ways we never have before.

Do Not Worry Bible Verse

Let’s look at the comforting words of Jesus in Luke 12.

And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!

                                                  Luke 12:25-28

When Jesus spoke these words, He knew that we would worry. And He knew we needed to be reminded of God’s love and peace.

So, why do we worry and stress when God promises to take care of us?

I don’t know! It just happens sometimes.

We conveniently forget all of the times God has taken care of us in the past and choose to toil and spin instead of having faith in God and His love for us.

This is the moment when we need to take a step back and realize that we don’t need to worry. We can trust God. Because if He cares about the grass and the flowers, then surely, He’s going to get us through today.

Maybe for you it’s not worry but something else that is keeping you from having the peace of Christ.

It could be family drama, work problems, troubled relationships, fear of failure, a longing for something different in life, or so many other things.

Whatever it is, Jesus wants you to have the peace that only He can offer.

So, take a step back, put your trust in Him, and see Him reaching out to you offering peace.

Jesus is our Peace

So, how can we find peace?

If you’re a Christian, then you already have peace in the person of Jesus Christ. Because Jesus Himself is peace! And He gives us His peace!

The Amplified Bible describes this kind of peace as “an inner calm”.

Isn’t that what we all want? To have an inner calm when life hits us hard? And to feel peace in the midst of chaos?

This peace is a spiritual peace that comes from the confidence of knowing Jesus. And it’s with us no matter what our outward circumstances are.

Emotional peace is more elusive. It’s that feeling we’re looking for when the chaos of life takes over and leaves us overwhelmed.

But we can find it by doing two, simple things.

How can I experience the peace of Jesus?

 

Pray

 This scripture from Philippians 4 gives us the first step to experiencing the peace of God.

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 NKJV

God is very clear… if you’re anxious and worried, take those fears to Him in prayer and He will give you peace that surpasses all understanding. And God’s peace will help you focus on Jesus and His eternal truth.

 

Read the Bible

 

The second step to experiencing the peace of Christ is found in Psalm 119.

 

Your word I have hidden in my heart.

                                             Psalm 119:11 NKJV

In this great Psalm, we are instructed to hide God’s word in our hearts. The fastest way to know God and experience the peace of Christ is through reading His Word and storing it in our hearts.

Earlier, I told you God asked me what ruled my heart. And my answer should have been God’s truth.

That’s why God asks us to store His Word in our hearts. It’s for those times when life is just too hard and we don’t know what to do.

Jesus promised us in John 14:26 that the Holy Spirit will bring to remembrance His Word and instructions in those moments. This is our gift of peace from the Savior.

So, start reading the Bible keep it hidden in your heart today.

Go Back to the Basics

Finding the peace of Christ in our daily lives sounds so easy. But when we’re in the thick of it, it’s so hard.

Yes, these two pathways to experiencing the peace of Christ, prayer and reading the Bible, are simple. But there’s nothing wrong with hitting the reset button and going back to the basics when you need to.

And you can never go wrong when you practice these two elements of the faith. They are the foundation for a reason.

Let Christ Rule in Your Heart

It is easy to get caught up in everything we need to do and forget to make time to spend with Jesus. But if we want to experience the peace of Christ, we need to choose to make Jesus the focus of our life and walk with Him every day.

When we do, the peace we are looking for will come.

I truly hope this short devotion on the Peace of Christ has helped you see the way out of worry and chaos and into the peace God has in store for you.

And my prayer for you today is that you will let Christ rule in your heart!

Monday Motivation – Philippians 4:7

In this Bible verse, Paul uses a military term to remind us of this truth… The peace of God is like a garrison of soldiers, protecting and surrounding our hearts and minds at all times. This peace keeps us safe from any enemy or outside force that would come against us. So, today let’s meditate on the peace of God, which surpasses understanding and be strengthened by the knowledge that He is always our best defense.
