How to find inner peace in God : Does bible say peace

Everyone wants to have a peace of mind. Even if you have millions of dollars and have no inner peace it woud be pointless.

Jesus came to this world to enable you to find that peace.

Anxiety:

Philippians 4:6

” Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

Many people live life with anxiety. And it can kill you. You need to pray in every situation, so that you could find peace of God.

What is inner peace, it is the presence of mind, that is calm and never get upset over anything. It could be a devastating tragedy that you may be facing , yet you are at peace with yourself, not overly worried about anything.

How do you find peace ?  You find it by meditating on scriptures. Find a serene place, preferably by the beach. Read the psalms, proverbs. Then pray for minimum of four hours. The spirit of God will descend upon you. And you will feel the peace of God in you.

If you are anxious, cast it upon the Lord. Tell the Lord what you are going through and ask for help. And he will definitely help you, comfort you.

I personally faced many situations in life, that was very hard for me to bear. Yet, I was able to overcome them all with my faith in God. I received the inner peace when I constantly prayed to Jesus asking for help.

Fear stuck me when I ran out of money to graduate from College. Yet I was calm and found ways to find the money needed. I was all alone, on my own, stranded in a strange country.

I could not find work as a student. I had to apply for a temporary work visa to work. I worked part-time while attending school.

Sometimes I ran out of money. Sometimes I starved. Yet, I was not scared. The Lord sent strangers to help me. What a mighty God we serve. Our God is never too late or early. He is always on time. When I did not have money to travel to US to study, God provided me with a Free ticket issued by the airline’s manager where I worked in the middle east.

I still remember the parting words of him. “I always wanted to attend school in US but never got the opportunity, I might as well help you get there.”

When I did not have enough money to study for my degree, God provided me with a scholarship. When I did not have shelter, he provided me. Strangers from nowhere offered their houses for me to stay.

For you to receive favors from the Lord, you need to pray daily. Not just a five-minute prayer but minimum two hours a day.

If you do not have enough time, I suggest at least half an hour a day. More you pray, closer you get to God.

Ezekiel 43:2

“and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory.”

You will hear him talking to you.That does not mean he is going to audibly talk to you, but you could hear his whisper. It will be like the “roaring sound of rushing water” He will speak to you through the scripture, meaning some scriptures will stand out to you.That means God is trying to tell you something, warn you of impending danger.

1 Peter 5:7

” Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you “

You worry about your children. Will they become respected members of the society, or are they going to be uneducated idiots.

Will they do well in school, will they be good sportsmen. As any mother or father, these are the things parents worry about daily.

How about our savings. Is that going to be enough to educate our children, What if we borrow from banks and not being able to pay back. Will that cause us to go bankrupt.

Our current jobs, will there be a lay off in the near future. Will my daughter marry the wrong person and end up in divorce.

Will economy will be stable even after Donald Trump leaves office. Can we depend on the status of the real market.

These are some things many worries about and it causes anxiety. And it can kill you.

Do good to people :

When you do good to people you will find that elusive peace. And you will cherish it. Ensure that you always behave civilized in public. Children of God knows how to behave in public not like hooligans.

Money:

They say “Money is the root of all evil” Yes, it could be but not always. If you do not have money, you are troubled. No peace of mind. How am I going to provide for my family. How am I going to pay for my children’s education.

How am I going to pay the mortgage or next month’s rent. What if I lose my job today. No emergency cash.

What am I going to do if have to go abroad for someone’s funeral. How can I afford to buy plane tickets for my family.

There will be plethora of things that could be wrong. In a time like this you need to pray harder. Seek God’s face. Listen to his “voice”

2 Thessalonians 3:16 ESV

” Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all”

He is our God of peace. He wishes peace for you at all times. God will be always with you proving you with a peace of mind.

When the Lord is with you he will give you peace. For the Lord to be with you, you need to walk in his ways. The closer you get to God, more protection there will be in your life and for those who are close to you.For your righteousness will rub on the people near you.

John 16:33 ESV

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world”

Yes, there will be tribulations always. It is important that you face it with wearing the Armour of God. Jesus is encouraging you by reminding that he has overcome the world. Therefore, take heart.

1 Peter 3:9-11 ESV

“Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it “

If you keep your tongue from evil and only do good. It will give a peace of mind. And you will be blessed abundantly. The biggest reason for your downfall can be the result of what you say of others.

You talk and smile at them at work but in your heart you hate that person. You just show the world that you love them. But your heart is full of envy jealousy towards them. How can god almighty bless you and give you peace.

You must repent and change your ways. By taking revenge on others you could make things worse. Always pray for others. Help them when in need. Do unto others as they would do unto you.

These will never change. More you do to others, more good will come upon you.Always think of other’s welfare above yours.

Conclusion:

Anxiety can destroy you.You need to pray regularly. Cast all worries upon the Lord. Read the bible daily. Meditate on it. When in trouble pray. You will find peace and happiness. Do not worry, know there is an omnipotent God always looking at you from heaven.

Here are a few verses from the Bible that I like you to meditate on daily.

Isaiah 26:3 

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

Romans 12:18

If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

Hebrews 12:14

Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so
that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Proverbs 16:7

When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Romans 8:6

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

  2. Thanks for sharing this Saj,

    My working life is so hectic that I face anxiety daily, some of them so bad that I can’t sleep at night and it’s killing me slowly with all that stress. With cruel people around me, I’m slowly turning to be like them to fit in and it’s driving me nuts, especially when there’s a lot of drama going on. Need to take a step back and meditate, thanks for writing this!

  3. Hi Saj – you have written a very positive and thought provoking article.  I agree that anxiety can be very unhealthy and overwhelming in your daily routine.  Sometimes we just need to stop and think and relax.  And think about the positives.  Think about what we do have and not about what we don’t have.

    Very nice post,

    Michele

  5. Thank you for this amazing post, I found it really inspiring and touching.Inner peace is very essential in life. I have learnt to grow over my fears and anxiety because anytime am worried I always commit my situations into God hand and he never fails. I like the bible verses you quoted in your post. Everyday without fail I pray to God to overcome all my worries and I do that without ceasing. 

  6. I have been a born again Christian since I was 13, but it’s been a long difficult struggle. Many times I felt God had abandoned me. Looking back, I realize that God had a plan for me, and that I needed to go through the events that I did. I have learned Gratitude because of the difficulties. I try to be positive, but depression often pulls me down. I have been praying more lately, usually choosing early in the morning when I can’t sleep. I wonder why you say one needs to pray on one’s knees for 4-6 hours per day? 

    Most people would find that impossible. My prayers last about 10 minutes at most at a time. I pray for others, and I ask God to Bless me as well. I also ask him to fill me with his Holy Spirit, with his Peace. I ask him to help me create a productive day, and to guide me if I can help someone that day. I often have short prayers throughout the day, sometimes on my knees, sometimes not. Praying on one’s knees for 4-6 hours is quite a feat, if you do that every day, that’s great for you! 

    1. If one needs to hear from God then it’s a good practice to pray for a longer period. And on your knees makes it more effective. It is alright to pray for 10 minutes  Gof still hears you.
