Are you feeling stressed out right now? Find out how these scriptures on peace of mind can help you experience the love of God today.

Scriptures on peace of mind: shalom peace

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

I don’t know what you think of when you think of peace. Our minds can be filled with many definitions and expectations around peace. But real peace is a person. The person of Jesus who came to bring Shalom peace in 3 powerful ways.

He came to bring peace between God and humanity.

He came to restore broken relationships between us collectively.

And finally, He came to bring peace to us individually.

This Shalom peace, with nothing missing and nothing broken, is the peace that He talks about here.

Ask God to fill you today with His perfect shalom peace.

Peace as guard

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

The practice of prayer can help us in our quest for a life of peace.

When we pray, we bring our whole lives honestly and openly before our God, who is able to do much more than we can ask think or imagine. As we pray, we can find our burdens lifted, and we can relax knowing we’ve presented our requests to our loving Father.

Through prayer, He invites us into this great exchange, and we can experience peace as a guard. And likewise, we learn to disengage from something if we sense that it is disturbing our peace.

So how does that work? Well, the presence of peace becomes a barrier to disruptive or harmful things.

For example, we might find ourselves watching something online that makes us feel uneasy, or we might sense the Holy Spirit prompting us to scroll past it. This is the peace of God in action. It protects us from harmful and unhelpful content that would rob us of our sense of wellbeing.

Steady Minds

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Isaiah 26:3

Wouldn’t you like a mind thats in a permanent state of peace? Well, this verse contains a clue to how we can experience this.

One of the keys to living in peace is learning to live in a state of trust. We must learn to trust God with outcomes and things we can’t control. This takes time and experience, for sure.

But, long-term, this approach allows us to face an uncertain future with hope. Not because we know what the future holds. Instead, we have learned to trust God, who holds the future.

Scriptures on Peace: Who’s the Boss?

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since, as members of one body, you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15

Peace can be the umpire in tough situations. When faced with a tough choice, mature Christians can learn to answer the question, “Do you have peace about it?” Its another way to express the reality that God will give us supernatural peace in the midst of something difficult as a means to guide, comfort, and correct us.

So, next time you face a tough decision, ask God to give you peace about which option to take.

Remember, He will never lead you into something that contradicts His written word, and He will be with you every step of the way.

Be still

“He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.'” Psalm 46:10

Sometimes, all we can do is rest in the knowledge that some things are too much for us to understand. In times like this, we can be still. But not just sit still, but quiet ourselves and calm the internal monologue by focusing on the goodness of God.

He never changes.

He is always faithful to us.

And, as we meditate on Biblical truths, we can experience the peace of God once again.
