πŸ‘‘ 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. 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. 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. 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. 3:15).

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