Finding Peace Today

Finding peace today comes only from a personal relationship with God. He is the God of all peace. It comes from a faith relationship with God through Jesus Christ. "Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us" (Romans 5:1, NLT). Christ died to take away all your sins. He was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from death, is the same Holy Spirit who brings peace to your life today. That peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit working within you. "But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace" (Galatians 5:22, NLT). 

Yield your life to God unconditionally through our Lord Jesus Christ. Ask Him to fill you today with the Holy Spirit. That means He will fill you with the peace of God. "If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand" (Philippians 4:7, NLT).

People seek for peace in life. Many are so restless, unable to settle their minds with any peace. They look in all the wrong places to find peace. Some read self-help books with the latest thoughts on pop-psychology. Playing mind games will never find real and lasting peace. Finding peace today is from God our Father, by faith in Christ, through the Holy Spirit.
