Personal Peace

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace. Ephesians 2:13-14a

 

Jesus Christ is a personal Savior who brings a personal peace. One of the advantages of knowing Jesus is knowing His peace; a peace that passes all understanding. A person outside of the Lord is exposed to the unsettling elements of evil that eliminate any thought of peace. Indeed, personal peace is a by-product of personally engaging God.

Are you at peace in your life in general and your work in particular? If not, submit to the Prince of Peace (Jesus) and allow Him to shepherd you through your valley of trepidation. You may not know what the future holds, but you know who holds the future. Because Christ is peace, do not overlook His inventory that already resides in your heart by faith.

Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.
Job 22:21

Once we were far off without faith and in fear, but now we have been brought near to God by the belief in His son’s blood for the payment of our sins. Salvation in Jesus is a peaceful position for all who appropriate their role as a child of God. It’s when we try to substitute the peace of God with the shallow promises of the world that we get anxious.

Your heavenly Father promises you peace in His son Jesus. There is no need to go any further than faith in Him. Yes, peace can be allusive within an alluring and noisy culture, but Christ is at peace in you. Unfair family members may cause you to fret and an unreasonable boss may cause you to sweat, but in the sanctuary of your soul there is peace. So, don’t substitute faith in Christ with a false peace; instead rest in His promise.

I will listen to what God the LORD says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants— but let them not turn to folly. Psalm 85:8

While you rock your feverish little one to sleep, lean into the Lord’s peace. When your mind races in frantic worry, resolve in your heart that the promise of God’s peace is irrevocable. When the stock market dives at every economic uncertainty, dive deeper into the security of your Savior Jesus. Personal peace is a product of being with the one who is peace. Your Prince of Peace awaits to escort you into His calming courts of peace.

You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. Acts 10:36

In what area of my life do I need peace of mind from the Prince of Peace, Jesus?
