Arrow Peace With God

Peace with God
Romans 5:1-2
One day I posed a question to the waitress at my table: “If you could ask God for anything, what would your request be?” Her answer was immediate. “I want to feel at peace.” She tearfully explained that her grandmother had died and emotional turmoil resulted.
Many in our world are like this young woman, in that they desire inner calmness but have no relationship with the Lord. People often seek contentment by trying to improve their appearance, physical fitness, financial situation, or social status—or by abusing substances. But such things can’t bring tranquility of heart or mind. Only a relationship with Jesus leads to true peace.
Prior to salvation, we were slaves to sin and living in opposition to God (Col. 1:21). Our transgressions had formed a barrier of hostility between Him and us, which we were helpless to cross on our own. Without God’s intervention, we could not have found the way of peace. But our heavenly Father provided the perfect solution to our sin problem. He sent His Son to pay for our iniquities and remove the separation that existed between us and Him.
When we trusted Jesus as our Savior, we were reconciled to the Lord (Rom. 5:10) and no longer at odds with Him. In Christ, we have peace with the Father.
Our triune God has provided everything we need for inner tranquility. The Father opened the way for us to be in His family. Jesus continually offers His peace so we can experience serenity of mind and heart (John 14:27). And the Holy Spirit cultivates the fruit of peace in our lives (Gal. 5:22).

Knowing God, is full of love and peace. Thank you, Father, for all that you do! And thank you for sending your son, Jesus, to teach us more about you. In Jesus name, AMEN.




I'm off this week. So it has been hard to catch your post, Bill. I'm kinda out of routine of looking for them. I'm glad this got bumped back up. Thank you!

This is what I needed today. Lost my dad 2 years ago Monday after losing my mom 2 years before that. Lost my son 33 years ago next month. I hate the holidays and most people look at me as a Debbie downer.

I'm praying for You!! I understand. I lost my only sibling (Sister) in November 2015 and my Wife in May of this year. I fully trust Gods word that I will be with them again when I pass. God has comforted Me in ways that some people wouldn't believe. I pray that He does for you also!!
