When we are having a difficult day, we turn to God and the words he left for us in the Bible. His words and messages of love are reassuring. They help us get through our daily struggles. No matter how big or small our struggles might be, we can find peace and reassurance from the Lord in these pages.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, the prince of peace, tells us to find peace in Him, and through Him, we will find peace in ourselves. We are to take each moment as they come. We are to trust in Him. He knows our futures, and during moments in which we are overwhelmed, we must remember that our lives are in His hands. As difficult as it may be, we must not let our own anxieties get in the way of our belief in Him.
We must trust that He knows what is best for us and find peace in His divine words.
The Holy Spirit teaches us through the Bible that the difficult moments we experience are just that; a moment in time.
There are many Bible verses about peace that show us how we must put our belief in God because only He knows what our future holds. Once we can accept that our God of hope is in control of our futures, this moment will pass, and peace will be bestowed upon us.
This is seen in Jeremiah 29:11, where the Bible tells us: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
The word of God cradles us in love, hope, and perfect peace. The Bible declares in Jeremiah 29:11 that God knows the plans He has given each of us. That means we should trust in Him. We do not have the self-control in our lives that we think we do because He is the one in control. We must trust that our Lord Jesus Christ knows what is best for us as children of God.
As such, we should not worry or doubt the path He has put us on. Knowing the Lord has created our futures allows us to ease our minds and find great peace.
We are told in Hebrews 12:11, “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
Our Lord tells us that even in the darkest of times, light is soon to come. It may seem difficult to see the peace of Christ that follows discipline. Sometimes it may seem downright impossible. However, after it passes, we know that such actions contained a purpose, and it is He who guided us down that path for a reason.
The Holy Spirit tells us the world will put hurdles in our path. The Bible also explains that we may not want to go to our friends or family members with problems because we don't want to overwhelm others with our own internal struggles.
1 Peter 5:7 states, “Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
It is He who will give us peace in our daily worries, struggles, and anxieties. God welcomes us to lay down our worries upon Him. We are told to trust in Him and to take solace.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is our greatest source of peace. We must open our hearts to Him to heal us and give us the peace we desire. This is seen in both Isiah and John.
In Isiah 41:10, it says, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
The Bible then tells us, according to the new testament in John 16:33, “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.”
The Lord teaches us that it’s important to seek peace every day, not just when we recognize that we need peace in our lives during moments of crisis. Seeking peace in our lives every day can help us handle the days when we need it the most. This is exemplified in Psalm 34:14, which states, “Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
You can also see this in 1 Peter 3:10-3:11, where we are told to always be on the path of good, not just when it is beneficial to us. For, “whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.”
Seeking peace daily makes us happier and more fulfilled as individuals. We must trust in the words and teachings of God because they will make us strong enough to live happy and productive lives.
Lastly, Matthew 6:34 tells us, “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
If we are open to it, God will grant us peace in our daily lives and a sense of quietness in our minds. Of course, there will be some days where we need Him more than others. That is to be expected in a long life. However, no matter what, He will always be there for us. To listen to our prayers, to guide us through all of man’s ways, and to assure us that we are not alone. He will never turn his back on us, and for that, we should take solace in our Lord of peace.
