A Peaceful Moment

18 Mar

At the heart of peace is harmony. To be at peace with someone–a family member, a neighbor or God, means to be in harmony with them, in relationship. When we ask Christ to cleanse us of our sins and make us a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17) we are asking for peace, a new harmonious relationship with our Creator.

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.     2Cor. 5:17-19

Peace of mind and heart comes from asking God (the source of peace) to live in you, helping you to understand this world with it’s problems, than you can navigate through any chaos because you know God is ultimately in control.

To find this harmony and peace of mind, you must ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and make you clean in God’s sight. Peace with God comes from living the way you were created to live. When you develop a relationship with your Creator, and live by the standards He has written in His word, the Bible, you will experience God’s peace as your mind, heart, and actions are aligned with His instructions. God’s peace is a gift, it is not earned. (Ephesians 2:8,9) Peace comes from knowing and living according to God’s word. His wisdom and direction guide you and lead you away from conflict, compromise, and deception.

Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
