When God established the garden, He furnished it with peace. He created the garden with the intention of perfect peace void of pain, disappointment, sadness. Adam and Eve believed a lie and lost that peace. Lies are the root of all our troubles and are the the thief of our peace.
In a manger in Bethlehem, we regained our peace!
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
For the wages of sin is death, but the gracious gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For thou are an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
7. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people
Jesus is our Peace!
Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, [a]excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off [b]have been brought near [c]by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the [d]barrier of the dividing wall, 15 [e]by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might [f]make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, [g]by it having put to death the enmity.
God’s Peace is for everyone!
“These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
God’s peace is a peace the world cannot give.
“For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake,
But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you,
And My covenant of peace will not be shaken,”
Says the Lord who has compassion on you.
When the devil tells his lies, God says He will never remove his kindness nor will His covenant of peace ever be removed.
35 Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
37 For yet in a very little while,
He who is coming will come, and will not delay.
38 But My righteous one shall live by faith;
And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.
Don’t shrink back. Don’t lose your confidence.
5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God has placed a guard over the peace in your heart.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are our shepherd, rod and staff. They will comfort you.
