Bible Verses About The Peace Of God

The old song from my childhood Bible School days rings in my head as I write this. “I have the peace that passeth understanding… down in my heart to stay….”  

These days, we could all use some refreshing peace. If you yearn for the peace of God to settle in your heart, this reading and journaling plan may be just what you need. 

What Is The Peace Of God?

God’s peace doesn’t have to do with the perfect life, and it doesn’t guarantee freedom from stress or conflict. The peace of God doesn’t have to wait until everyone agrees or the kids are all in bed. People are always looking for peace in all kinds of places and ways, using many methods, sometimes thinking they’ve found their peace, only to find it disappearing as quickly as it came. 

But the true peace of God is really much simpler than that. It’s as simple as giving away our confusion, our strife, our disagreements, our stresses – giving all of our cares to the One who can take them over and handle them far better than we ever have or will be able to. 

This peace can take place even in the least peaceful surroundings, because it is placed in the hearts of those who trust Jesus with everything. From our hearts, this peace reaches to every part of us and is often visible as “something different” to the general population. 

How To Get The Peace Of God

Let’s find this out by previewing some of the Scriptures that are in this 30-day Bible reading plan. You’ll find a downloadable copy of the full plan at the bottom of this post. 

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Don’t let your heart be troubled or fearful.

Isaiah 41:10

Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold onto you with my righteous right hand. 

Isaiah 9:6

For a child will be born for us, a Son will be given to us, and the government will be on his shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

This promise in Isaiah foretells the Christ child and all that He is to us, His children:

Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  

Romans 15:13

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  

The peace of God is beyond all human understanding. But we have access to it because of Jesus. And we have hope – do we ever have hope!

We Have A Responsibility To Spread The Peace Of God

John 20:21

Jesus said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, I also send you.

Proverbs 16:7

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

And when we are obedient to God’s instructions given in the Bible, there are blessings for us: 

Romans 14:19

So then, let us pursue what promotes peace and what builds up one another.

Throughout the Bible, we are told to pursue peace and also told how to find it. And we are to spread the peace of God to others.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

May the Lord of peace himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with all of you.  

The Peace Of God Is A Treasure

The Peace Of God 30-Day Reading Plan printable - new day of simplicity

I’ve made a free printable page containing the verses for this free Bible reading plan, which can also be used for reading, studying, or journaling – or all three if you’d like.

Christians throughout the ages have suffered and even died for the privilege of spreading the Gospel. They have refused to be deterred no matter what was threatened or done to them as they bravely faced perilous threats to their own lives and those of their families and friends.

Where have they found peace? It was inside of them, in their hearts, for they knew that they would either live or die to this world, and they were convinced that dying would guarantee them eternal life with their beloved Savior.

The peace of God is what kept them going and gave them the strength that they needed to stand up for their faith.
