Inner Peace

(Philippians 4 7) When I think of peace what comes to mind is a state of calmness and tranquility. The mind is in the state of restfulness. This transforms the outward demeanor of a person. The jitters are gone; there are no more internal wars because we know that when we cast all of our troubles on the Heavenly Father that he will fight our battle.

Verse seven states that when we call on the Lord God from the heart we have the assurance that through Christ Jesus the peace of God will flood our trouble souls.

When we try to fight our battles is when we lose and continue to struggle with the world in trying to find lasting peace. We know that the Heavenly Father’s peace begins in the heart and it permeates into our troubled souls. How can we have this inner peace? Only through mediation of the Holy Spirit, who live in us.

The function of the Holy Spirit is to teach, lead, and guide us. However, we must be willing to the Holy Spirit.

Yielding ourselves to the Holy Spirit means there is a firm conviction that Jesus is near, God’s love is active in our lives forever, and Jesus is the center of our lives. (Roman 8:28, 32 KJV).

Who is the warrior that will fight our battles and give us that inner peace and how do we get that lasting peace. The warrior who fights our battles is God our Heavenly Father, and the weapon we use to fight with is prayer. We petition the throne of grace in prayer. We do this so that those fears and anxieties will not return and we can remain in that state of calmness. When God sends His peace through His answered prayers, they will stand guard at the door of our hearts and keeping the world’s troubles on the outside.

If I can use a quote from the book ““Light For My Path for women by Jennifer Hahn,” When the presence of the Lord really becomes your experience, you will actually discover that you have gradually begun to love this silence and peaceful rest which come with His presence. MADAME GUYON””. The author makes a powerful statement regarding peace that only the Lord can give everlasting peace.

I have derived form the above statement that I agree with the author has learned to rely totally on the Lord God to fight my battle and keep Satan at bay. When we come to this point in our lives, we have made Jesus Christ the center of our lives. The world’s troubles can not have an affect on us because we have our protector Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

This reminds me of Proverbs 16:7 which state “when a man’s ways pleases the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him”.

How do we approach God in prayer? First, we praise Him, thank Him, and then petition Him. God’s peace is lasting.
