How to receive the peace of God

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Thursday, March 14, 2013 Under: christian messages

peace birdPeace in the form of perfect calm and serenity comes from God and God alone. The peace of God does not necessary mean the absence of trouble but the presence of inner joy and happiness. If your heart is troubled and it seems as if you have lost your peace of mind, all you need is the intervention of The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7). Jesus is the Prince of Peace. A few instructions from His word will calm the turbulent ocean of your heart and restore your peace of mind.  

Repent of sins that causes your heart to trouble

 If as a Christian, you backslide and turn away from God, you may lose your peace. The solution is simple: repent of your sins and reconcile with God, your maker (Job 22:21). If you do this, the scripture pointed out that, not only will you have peace but good things will follow you as well.

Love the law of the Lord (Psalm 119:165, Proverbs 3:1-2)

One of the best ways to receive peace of God is to love the word of God and do what it says. Meditate on the word of God, trust in what it says and apply them to every situation of your life. The blessing that comes with this is not only the peace of God but with added prosperity (Joshua 1:8-9).

Pray

Ask God to heal your anxiety and bless you with peace. Jesus blessed his disciples with peace (John 14:27). As a child of God, the peace of Jesus Christ is one of your rightful inheritances. If you are troubled in heart, call on God in prayer and he will bless you with peace. Psalm 29:11 clarifies this by saying
“The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.”

Abhor wickedness

Finally, be sure you are not one of those who God regarded as the wicked: The scripture says “there is no peace for the wicked (Isaiah 48:22)”. The wicked comprises of people like fornicators, adulterers, liars, murderers, backbiters, idolaters, haters of God etc. God has vowed that those in this group will not receive his peace, instead eternal condemnation and destruction awaits them (Job 21:30).

Salvation First!


Those who God will bless with peace are his people (i.e. the righteous not to sinners. Psalm 29:11). If you are hungry for the peace of God, then reconcile with Him today by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. If you are ready, please say this short prayer of salvation and be born again today.

If you have given your life to Christ, you can go ahead and make the PRAYER FOR PEACE OF MIND your companion.

Thanks and God bless.
