What does the Bible say about peace?
Well, a lot of things.
Open Bible has 100 verses on peace! (I will post a link below)
Here is one of my favorites…
John 16:33 ESV
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
It’s no surprise this was at the top of the list as voted the most helpful.
Do you struggle to find peace? I sure know I do.
My mind never shuts off, it’s always going. Sometimes that’s a good thing and other times it’s a terrible thing. It can feel burdensome.
Often I am anxious or worry. I make up scenarios in my head. Or I think of things that anger me and what I wish I would have done or said.
In reality all that is truly fruitless.
It can be quite the struggle.
But Bible verses like John 16:33 sure help. Since Jesus has overcome the world and our peace is found in Him we need not to be burdened by the problems of the world, we can take our normal emotions to Him. We can take our sadness, our anxiety, our worries to Him. We can take our anger, hostility and pain to Him. We can take all things both good and bad to Him who is our peace.
This week, I will pray for those who read this for peace, I ask if you have the time to pray for peace for me as well.
Thank You and Have a Blessed and Peaceful Week,
