Need peace? Want to learn how to stop letting what’s going on around you control what’s going on inside of you?
Listen to this What’s the Bible Say? episode and discover what peace is, how we get it and why peace isn’t dependent upon your circumstances.
Peace doesn’t mean we don’t experience pain. Peace is something we can all have even in the midst of our pain. But we need to know what peace is first.
Peace isn’t the absence of something. It’s the presence of Someone.
It’s the presence of YHWH-Shalom. The God who is Peace and who gives us peace.
Jesus came to this earth and died for our sins to give us peace with God. For those who receive Him, we can then experience the peace of God and also peace with one another.
Dear Christian friend, don’t forfeit the peace that Jesus died to give you by wasting so much time & energy worrying about all the what if’s and worst case scenarios of life.
Stop letting what’s going on around you control what’s going on inside you.
Trust Jesus to be who He said He is and do what He said He will do…to BE your peace and to GIVE you peace. And be at peace with others. Forgive those who’ve hurt you. It may be hard, but remember… forgiveness is the gift you give yourself.
And if you need to ask for forgiveness, ask. Don’t let your pride prevent you from experiencing peace with others and the peace that is yours when you finally lay down your pride.
And the BEST WAY we can experience the PEACE OF GOD is to follow Scriptures’ step-by-step plan for peace found in Philippians 4:6-7 and Isaiah 26:3.
Philippians 4:6-7 says,
- “Be anxious for nothing, (choose not to let your heart be agitated by your circumstances.)
- but in everything by prayer and supplication, (so, pray about what you’re going through in stead of being anxious)
- with thanksgiving (choose to be thankful),
- let your requests be made known to God; (pray…cast your care upon Him, talk to Jesus about what you’re going through)
- THE RESULT IS THE PEACE OF GOD (verse 7) and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
And Isaiah 26:3 gives similar instructions, “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”
In the original language, the phrase, “perfect peace” is literally… SHALOM, SHALOM. If you want SHALOM, SHALOM (that DOUBLE PORTION of PEACE)…
- Fix your mind (lean on, rest upon) the Lord.
- Trust God… have a secure confidence in the Lord.
Stop living in angst when Jesus died to give you peace. Call on YHWH-Shalom to BE your peace and to GIVE you peace…and He will.
Experience the peace you so desperately need today!
