Is Peace What You Need?

Here is a quotation from Steps to Christ p. 49  "It is peace that you need - Heaven's forgiveness and peace and love in the soul.  Money cannot buy it, intellect cannot procure it,wisdom cannot attain to it; you can never hope, by your own efforts, to secure it.  But God offers it to you as a gift,  'without money and without price: Isa. 55:1.  It is yours if you will but reach out your hand and grasp it.  The Lord says, 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.' Isa 1:18. " A new heart also will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you.' Eze. 36:26."

Some Promises to memorize and have faith in:

Psalm 29:11  "The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace."

Psalm 119:165  "Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing shall offend them."

Romans 5:1  "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."

Isaiah 54:10  "For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed; says the Lord who has mercy on you."

Romans 15:13  "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

Isaiah 26:3  "You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You  Because he trusts in You."

John 14:27  "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid."

A great study on peace is what we need.  I hope it has been an inspiration to you and has helped you have the peace that heaven offers.  It is a much needed asset in this troubled world and it does not come by trying to create it, it comes through the promises of God and He wants to have that peace that passes all understanding.  I will do another study on peace that will show us how to have the peace that we need.  Watch for it soon.  Grandma Joan
