God gives His Peace
Updated: 4 days ago
We can have peace no matter what we are facing in life. God says we can bring our worries to Him in prayer. There are a lot of things in life that causes us to worry. Many people are in between jobs and the future has uncertainty, health issues don’t go away as the years go by, friends and family members pass on. Children or grandchildren are facing their own battles that can cause worry in our lives. All these things add up and can steal our peace and joy in our life.
God didn’t intend for us to live our lives with these events weighing us down and taking a way our peace and joy. God doesn’t promise us we won’t have these life events, He tells us we will have trials and tribulations. But He does say that we can still have peace and joy. Our peace and joy do not depend on our circumstances, but on our relationship with Christ. Our joy and peace come from the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5.
Galatians 5: 22-23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Whenever you bring your anxieties to God in prayer, He provides His surpassing peace, and it creates an impenetrable wall that guards our hearts and minds. This is a promise that God gives us in His Word.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Therefore, it is so vital for a Christian to start their day in prayer. Turn whatever is causing anxiety in your life over to God.
