Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!
Peace begins with a smile.
No circumstance is so big that He cannot control it.
The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace. True wisdom is never argumentative or quarrelsome. It does not strive. It maintains harmonious relationships with everyone, as far as possible. It is impossible to quarrel with a man who is filled with Divine wisdom, for such a man is a peaceable man.
As we pour out our bitterness, God pours in his peace.
May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
I have held many things in my hands, and have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.
We must do our business faithfully; without trouble or disquiet, recalling our mind to GOD mildly, and with tranquility, as often as we find it wandering from Him.
If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.
As long as a man is alive and out of hell, he cannot have any cause to complain.
We cannot enjoy peace in this world unless we are ready to yield to the will of God in respect of death. Our times are in His hand, at His sovereign disposal. We must accept that as best.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
If God be our God, He will give us peace in trouble. When there is a storm without, He will make peace within. The world can create trouble in peace, but God can create peace in trouble.
Because of the empty tomb, we have peace. Because of His resurrection, we can have peace during even the most troubling of times because we know He is in control of all that happens in the world.
Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God’s removal of that which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him.
A born-again person ought to possess unspeakable peace in the spirit.
Real contentment must come from within. You and I cannot change or control the world around us, but we can change and control the world within us.
Concentrate on counting your blessings and you’ll have little time to count anything else.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
