Read Romans 5:1 through 8:39
There is little peace in this world. Wars are constantly being fought somewhere on the planet. Then there is the turmoil in people’s hearts—anger, hatred, worry, anxiety. Yet there is a way to live in perfect peace.
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).
Sin separates us from God’s peace. When people accept Jesus, they are justified, free from sin and its power.
However, Christians live in the world and daily rub shoulders with situations that threaten their peace. On these occasions, peace must be pursued. God’s people should avoid controversy, speak kindly, and treat others as they’d like to be treated.
Christians do not stand alone in their pursuit of peace. God has provided a helper. The Holy Spirit lives in every believer’s heart and will help them have peace.
If you feel your supply of peace slipping away, read the Bible, and ask God for a fresh supply. He has plenty of peace to share with you.
Prayer Suggestion: God, please bless me with heavenly peace. Amen.

Devotional brought to you by God's Word For Today.
God's Word For Today is available from Gospel Publishing House.
Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
