How To Live In The Peace Of God

In a world of chaos, conflicts, confusion, and turmoil, many Christians are seeking peace, but looking for it in the wrong places. True peace can only be found in the Lord Jesus Christ. In the Gospel of John 14:27 Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you…” If you have received Jesus Christ as your Savior, then the peace of Christ is in you. Acknowledge, by faith, that you will allow Jesus’ peace to rule in your heart according to Colossians 3:15.

Read Philippians 4:6-7. Now pray, give thanks to God, and believe His peace is lifting your concerns and worries from your heart and mind. If you do not know Jesus as your Savior, ask Him to forgive you of your sins and to help you live for Him.

Until next time… Walk with Jesus!
