Dec 15, 2017

The Bible teaches we can have peace no matter what happens.

  • John 16:33, NKJV; Ephesians 2:14, NKJV; John 14:27, NKJV; 2 Thessalonians 3:16, TLB
  • We always have to believe the Word over the World.
  • We have to know one of the main reasons we lose our peace or give our peace away is lack of patience.
    • We hurry because we are impatient—we are impatient because we lack trust—when we lack trust we lose our PEACE.
  • We have to know God wants to teach us patience through our problems.  (Romans 5:1-5, NKJV)
  • Spiritual peace with God can only come through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    • Grace gives us the power to do whatever God calls us to do and do it with joy!
    • Hope is the confident expectation of a positive future in spite of our present circumstances.
    • Grace and hope allow us to have peace that brings honor and glory to God in any and all situations.
  • God’s will for our life is more about behavior change where we live, work, and go to school.  (Romans 5:3, AMP)
    • God wants us Thriving not simply Surviving.
    • Triumph over our Troubles.
    • Lack of patience cause us to lose our peace – God wants us to learn to practice patience
  • Spiritual growth requires both problems and patience.
    • Instead of learning to practice patience which leads to peace, we often run from our problems.
    • Until we learn to practice patience we will keep having the same problems.
    • Remember God is more interested in building character than He is our comfort.  (Romans 5:4-5, AMP)
    • He wants us to live with a joyful confidence knowing He is working all things for good.
    • Peace is an inward confidence God is doing what is good and right inspite of how we might feel.
