πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ The Difference Between ‘Peace With God’ And ‘The Peace Of God’

β€œPeace with God” is one thing; β€œthe peace of God” is another. To enjoy the latter, we must first experience the former, for the peace of God, ruling in our hearts, is the result of β€œpeace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

St. Paul declared by divine inspiration that β€œ[Christ] was delivered for our offences and was raised again for our justification” and that β€œtherefore, being justified by faith,” we, who once were at enmity with God, may enjoy β€œpeace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom.Β 4:25; 5:1). The result of β€œpeace with God” is β€œthe peace of God,” the peace that He gives to His own amid all the troubles of life. This is why the Apostle wrote to the Roman Christians:

β€œNow the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing” (Rom.Β 15:13).

While only those who are at peace with God can β€” and should know β€œthe peace of God,” it does not follow, however, that all those who are at peace with God necessarily enjoy β€œthe peace of God.” Believers can enjoy β€œthe peace of God” only as they practice Phil. 4:6:

β€œBE CAREFUL [ANXIOUS] FOR NOTHING; BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION, WITH THANKSGIVING, LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN UNTO GOD.”

As we follow these instructions the promise which follows will certainly be fulfilled.

β€œTHE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH PASSETH ALL UNDERSTANDING, SHALL KEEP YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS” (Ver. 7).

As believers in Christ β€œwe know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose” (Rom.Β 8:28). Therefore we
should not be constantly overwhelmed and defeated by the adversities of life, but should heed the exhortation; β€œLet the peace of God rule in your hearts” (Col.Β 3:15).

β€œNOW THE LORD OF PEACE HIMSELF GIVE YOU PEACE ALWAYS BY ALL MEANS” (II Thes.Β 3:16). source

Bible Verse for 2/18/19

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. — Romans 8:38-39
