MATTHEW 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God (NKJV). The Message translation reads, “You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. Jesus is known as the Prince of Peace. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family (MSG).
For so many years, it was extremely difficult to find a place of peace in our lives because of constant turmoil over many things. But, as I’ve learned through the years, you can’t help someone find peace in their life until you experience it for yourself. There’s a peace in my spirit that I know comes from God and not man. God gives me His peace every day because of what His life means to me as a Christian and as His child. No one can ever take that away from me. The times where I haven’t experienced peace is because I didn’t follow His plan for my life. Peace doesn’t mean we have an easy life, but that God’s peace surpasses anything we can imagine in this world.
PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus (NLT).
Dear friends, you will never know true inner peace apart from God.
JOHN 14:27 I’m leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid (NLT).
