indexPeace —
One of its meanings is “inner contentment; calm; serenity.” In the late twentieth century, this is what so many long for: a calm place, a refuge, a sanctuary for the soul — you know, the ability to keep your head when others around you are losing theirs.

Is there an oasis of the spirit that refreshes us even in the hurly-burly world we live in? The Bible shows us there is.

Today’s Scriptures

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you. Isaiah 26:3, NLT

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you. He thrusts out the enemy before you; it is he who cries, “Destroy them!” Deuteronomy 33:27, NLT

You are my rock and my fortress. For the honor of your name, lead me out of this peril. Psalm 31:3, NLT

My help comes from the Lord, who made the heavens and the earth! He will not let you stumble and fall; the one who watches over you will not sleep. Psalm 121:2-3, NLT

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1, NLT

Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28, NLT

God’s Promise

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27, NLT

Action Point

Identify your “disturbers of the peace.” Talk to God about your inability to handle them well. Ask him to send his peace into those situations.
