THE ART OF PEACE

When I think of the art of peace, I immediately think of the peace that comes in the glowing sunrise or the dimming of the light at sunset.  They bring me excitement for the approaching day and contentment and satisfaction at the end of it.  What brings me the most peace, is time I spend each day in the Word of God.

I hope you will feel this peace from the below photos, video and scriptures for meditation.

 

Are you struggling with an area of your life today and looking for peace? The Bible has some great verses about the topic of peace.

WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT PRAYER

Matthew 5:9   “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Matthew 11:28-30   Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

John 14:27   Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

THINGS YOU CAN DO TO INCREASE PEACE

 

  • Prayer

Philippians 4:6-7  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  • Serving Christ

Romans 14:17-19 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

  • Love

2 Corinthians 13:11  Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another,agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

  • Obedience

1 Peter 1:2 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood:  May grace and peace be multiplied to you.

  • Trust

Isaiah 12:2  “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”

  • Faith

Romans 5:1  Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

Living at Peace With Others Bible Verses

Mark 9:50  Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

Luke 6:27 But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

Romans 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.

James 3:18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
