It’s A Peace Thing!

Reason 3: You can count it all joy because you have peace with God!

Webster’s dictionary defines peace as a state of tranquility or quiet, freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the bible says that peace is your inheritance. Romans 5:1 (NKJV) says, “Having been justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Our faith in God gives us the legal right to have fellowship and walk in peace. Peace is not dependent on our natural circumstances. Jesus said that in the world we would experience problems but we must never let our hearts be troubled.

How is that possible to achieve! Our freedom from stress and anxiety comes when we learn how to receive the gift of God’s peace. He has also given us his Word to speak comfort and hope to us.  He has promised to keep us in perfect peace when our mind is focused on Him. Above all, He has commanded us to cheer up in the midst of trouble because in Him we have already obtained the victory!
