Peace with God

A personal relationship with God brings peace. It secures peace with God, and it brings peace from God. He is the God of all peace. When you walk with God, you walk in peace. While the circumstances around you may be everything but peace, yet the peace of God guards your mind and heart through it all.

Only grace can bring peace from God. Grace is God's favor, that we neither earn nor deserve. That favor is found as reality through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Trusting him, and yielding our lives to him, secures peace for you. "Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ" (Ephesians 1:2).

Pray the Word: God, I want to be at peace with you, through Jesus Christ. I believe Jesus died for all my sins. I believe Jesus is risen from the dead. I confess that Jesus is Lord. Amen.

Do the Word: Trust Jesus Christ to do for you and in you, what you could never do for yourself. That is to bring peace with God. Grace and unmerited favor from God comes to you by believing or trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ.
