How to have peace.
So I am sure you are wondering? How do we have peace Caty? I know right now in the days we are living in, peace feels impossible. But it’s not! Peace doesn’t come from the world, true peace only comes from Jesus. So how do you get peace from Jesus?
1. Seek God by praying for peace, worshiping Him, listening to Him, and reading His word daily!
To be honest with you, I haven’t been reading my Bible everyday. Lately this semester of college has been so tough and I have had so much homework. But today I am making a commitment that I will pray and read my Bible everyday. Because the more we seek God by reading His word and praying, we will be able to build a close relationship with God. The Bible says the more we dear near to Jesus, the more He will draw near to us (Psalm 125:1-2). So we will be able to have a close relationship with God, and that is the best relationship we can have.
2. We have to fix our thoughts on Jesus.
This step is probably the hardest because we have to think about what we are thinking about. Then we think thoughts that are lies from the Devil, we need to stop thinking that thought, and think about what Jesus says about us.
Here is what Jesus says about us:
You are beautiful. (Psalm 45:11)
You are unique. (Psalm 139:13)
You are loved. (Jeremiah 31:3)
You are special. (Ephesians 2:10)
You are created with a purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11)
You are cared for. (Ephesians 3:17-19)
You are lovely. (Daniel 12:3)
You are precious. ( 1 Corinthians 6:20)
You are strong. (Psalm 18:35)
You are important. (1 Peter 2:9)
You are forgiven. ( Psalm 103:12)
You are protected. (Psalm 121:3)
You are chosen. (John 15:16)
You are mine. (Isaiah 43:1)
Whenever we think: “I am not good enough.” We need to think about how we are good enough in Christ. Post that list on your bathroom mirror if you have to. But remember that in God, you are loved (Jeremiah 31:3) and cared for (Ephesians 3:17-19).
3. We have to put our trust in God.
In this step, you have to surrender EVERYTHING to Jesus. You surrender all your: thoughts, fears, worries, doubts, anxieties, dreams, hopes, and your life to Jesus. You complete surrender all to Jesus. How do you surrender all to God? By trusting in Him. You trust in God by believing in His word even when you are going through storms. You trust in God’s goodness even when nothing in your life is good. You believe in the cross and that He died and rose again. And you believe in His promises:
God will love you forever. (Psalm 136:1)
God will never leave you. (Hebrews 13:5)
God will comfort you. (Isaiah 49:13)
God will help you and always be there for you. (Psalm 121:1-2)
God is always faithful. (Psalm 33:4)
God keeps His promises. (Deuteronomy 7:9)
God is good. (Psalm 31:19)
God will draw near to you. (Psalm 125:1-2)
You can do all things through Christ. (Phillpians 4:13)
With God on your side, you can do anything! (Matthew 19:26)
God has an amazing plan for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)
God is for you and on your side. (Psalm 118:6)
God is all around you. (Psalm 125:1,2)
God never changes. (Hebrews 13:8)
How do you find peace in God?
1. You seek God daily.
2. You fix your thoughts on Jesus
3. You trust in God and all of His promises
I pray that as I seek you daily, fix my thoughts on you, trust in you and all your promises, that you bless me with your peace. Help me know that even when my circumstances aren’t good that you are still good. Help me remember that even when I don’t feel you that I know you are there. I put my faith, hope, and trust in you. I surrender everything to you. I pray you grab my hand and help me every single day of my life. I pray you never leave me. I pray you help me with whatever I am facing and that you bless me with everything I need. I thank you for your goodness, love, grace, and mercy. I thank you for being so good to me. I love you Lord. I praise you for you are my King!
I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.
In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!
