The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make, for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15
Throughout the Bible, God makes it clear that he wants us to be at peace. He wants us to feel peace in our hearts in all situations because we are strengthened by his love and our trust in him.
Whether there is conflict in a family, work, or our country we will face this to some degree. The Bible is filled with verses that can bring peace in the middle of struggles, worries, and fear. I encourage you to find a quiet place to pray, read Scripture, and listen to encouraging worship music. Taking a long walk where it is peaceful and tranquil can help immensely. Take in the beauty and slow down your breathing and be still. We will face many trials in life and feel the weight of many burdens but we know God is on our side and to be strong and courageous. Here are a few verses that are my favorite. You can also download the Bible app and you can pull up a verse daily for encouragement.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 119:165 Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.
Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they trust in you.
My paths are beyond tracing out! Come to Me with humility in your heart, bowing before My infinite intelligence. Relinquish your demand to understand, accept the fact that many things are simply beyond your comprehension. Because I am infinite and you are finite, the limitations of your mind make it impossible for you to understand much of what happens in your life and in the world. So it’s vital to make room for mystery in your worldview. You are privileged to know many things that were formerly mysteries things that had been kept hidden for ages and generations. The New Testament is full of revelations that came through My incarnation, life, death, and resurrection. You are immeasurably blessed to have this priceless knowledge! Nonetheless, the ways I work in your world are often mysterious to you, beyond tracing out. This presents you with a choice to resent My ways or to bow before Me in wonder and worship. Marvel at the depth of the riches of My wisdom and knowledge!
