Gift of Peace - Devotion Week 1

Get Peace With God

God wants us to have peace with Him. The peace God gives us, no one can take from us.

3 Steps to Peace that surpasses all understanding:

  1. Peace with God
  2. The Peace of God
  3. Peace with People

You have to have Peace with God before you can have the Peace of God.

God has done it all! He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others. 2 Corinthians 5:18

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

Peace with God is a spiritual peace—it doesn’t come from anything we do. It comes from what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross. You can’t have personal peace that last without spiritual peace. God wants us to have this spritual peace and it can only come from Him.

When you read these two verses what is God saying to you?

My Insight: God has given me the gift of peace so that I can extend it to others. My Action Step: If there is someone I don’t have peace with, I need to address that person if appropriate, give it to God and move forward.

This says to me, that God gave us the greatest gift of peace through his son, Jesus Christ. All we have to do is accept it.
And he has put to us to bring others to know him, that they too may have peace with God.

In going through storms of life, knowing Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior it gives me peace knowing that he will always be there for me and my family. “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27

If you don’t have peace with others, you probably don’t have the of Peace of God that comes from Peace with God! Only you can do something about your own peace!

My Insight.
Romans 5:1
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Peace with God is a privilege and privilege comes at a cost. The privileges that come with our relationship with God are great, and they came at a great cost. Christ’s death upon the cross paid for our sin debt. When we accept Him as Lord and Savior, we become justified by our faith. Through our faith, we can be at peace with God and when we have peace with God, we begin to have the peace of God.

Often tell my kids to maintain “Peace at all cost” . Of which they “totally ” miss the point. Do they know what peace is? Are you a peacemaker? Some time stepping into being a Peace maker, robs a little of your peace, trying to make other at peace. You need extra of “God’s Peace ” to do this.
You must take of him (his peace) to help others and maintain yourself!

1 Peter 5:7 NIV
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

I need to be remember that God has my life in His hands and will take care of me. God never says it will be easy or fun, or rough and difficult, but that He will be with me through it all.

*Don’t look for peace in the world, only God can provide peace.

*Peace from God is not an outer peace, but an inner peace that no one can take away.

*If something is disturbing your peace, then the “something” is not from God.

God sent Jesus Christ, his only son to restore our relationship with God. God knew we could not do this on our own. With the gift of Salvation provided to us from God, God asks us to continue this work as ambassadors to Christ Jesus spreading his word with others.

Peace with God is an absorbed peace. It is all from Him to us. Peace of God is a reflective peace. That peace absorbed from Him is used to reflect off us to bring peace with God to someone else. My devotional verse of the day for yesterday was Joshua 1:9. Be strong & courageous! For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Now that’s peace right there!

I love the reminder that God has given us peace, just like our salvation and His strength. The gifts that God gives no one can take away as long as we hold on to it. It’s so easy to forget, let go of peace, and allow others to steal it, but as soon as we go back to God and ask for it back or make peace with God, we get the peace of God back.

Peace is more of a mindset and heart issue over a circumstantial issue. Peace is not directly tied in with what is going on in my life but it is tied up with where my heart is. Action Step: Align my heart with the Lord’s in order to experience the Peace of God.

We tend to focus on God being all knowing and all powerful. However it is believed that if you asked God what he believes is his most important attribute he would say it is his peace. It’s the foundation of his spirit and what he wants for us. He gave his son so that we can have proper relationship with him and experience his peace. A supernatural peace.

How do we know we are growing toward accomplishing that goal? Look at Galatians 5:22-23 and check the fruit. Vibrant fruit=vibrant Christlike spirit. Vibrant Christlike spirit=God’s peace.

Regarding Romans 5:1, the justification of my salvation by faith reminds me that my standing and my acceptance by God does not depend on me. Even my sin does not cancel out my salvation. The bottom line of this truth is that God has found a way to put aside my sin, by faith in the work of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ, on my behalf. What an awesome God we serve!

You’re never going to make peace with others until you make peace with God. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”. (Matt 5:9) Not the people who create conflict and division but the peacemakers, the bridge builders. 

“In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12)

God has already given us everything we need for peace through Jesus. If we’re not receiving that peace it’s because we’ve gotten in our own way. Pray to God that He’ll remove our self -imposed limitations

Christ is the Prince of Peace. He came to dispel the judgement and ridicule (whether from ourselves or others) that robs our peace on a daily basis. It is only through the knowledge that He overcame the world that we can experience true peace in life. “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Thank you Jesus!

Having peace from God does not come from anything that I personally do. It is a gift from God. Likewise, the example is set that giving peace to other people should not, and cannot, be derived from anything that they do. A difficult action step that I have to continually remind myself is that if I want to continually be more like Christ, than I have to continually act like Christ. In this lesson that means to give out my peace to people unconditionally, just as Christ does to me.

Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you”. For me when I think of perfect peace, all that comes to mind is a close personal relationship with Jesus. Peace is a rare commodity that God gives only to those that truly trust Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.

As I read this every day it simply says I gave or should I say I give you my all and all I ask is you accept and in today’s words pass it on kind of like the drive thru at chic filet when someone in front of you pays your ticket Jesus has paid our ticket so we have been afforded the opportunity to have peace but we must pass it on. In doing so our peace and joy will grow to unimaginable levels. Seriously think about anytime you have helped someone and how it made you feel!! What a wonderful feeling the peace of god is

When I read this I can’t help but think of the people I see every single day at work crying and agonizing over sitiations that are completely out of their control. They tell me they are Christians and I do not doubt it but they also tell me that they have placed their situations in God’s hands and this is simply not so. To own the Peace God offers is to have Faith that He will take care of all of our needs in His way and His time. We have to let go of our superficial desires because He sees the entire picture while we see one frame at a time. I see this happening daily and easily recognize it as such, but can I see it in myself? Have I tapped into His sweet perfect gift? This I want for all Christians because I know how powerful that open spititual eyes can be. I pray He will show me: open my eyes.

It’s about the relational peace we have with God. Once we have that as long as we keep Him first we will always have Peace that only he can offer us.

I have found in my walk with Jesus I can be on a tractor on a day so hot the sweat ivaporates yet I have joy and pease in my heart. Physical and emotional suffering can not take what God has given me. All I have to do is stop listen and look and I will hear and see God’s face and every hardship suddenly seems completely insignificant.
