Faith Brings Peace

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. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love. Romans 5:1-5 NLT

When we have faith in Jesus, we receive many benefits. Peace is one of those benefits. The world can not bring you peace. Maybe for a short time but not for long. The peace that Jesus gives lasts for eternity. His peace brings us joy.  A joy that gives us the ability to rejoice when we go through difficult times. Joy brings us hope. Hope gives us the strength we need to run the race to the very end. Hope in Jesus will not disappoint because He fills our hearts with His love through the Holy Spirit.

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27 NLT

 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 4:7 NLT
