Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

If it takes faith (believing the sacrifice Jesus paid on our behalf) to have peace with Almighty God, how much more should faith be applied to have peace in other areas of our lives?

This is the time of year where the phrase “peace on earth and goodwill toward men” is frequently used. Unfortunately, peace is not automatic. Faith must be applied to receive peace.

Many of us would prefer additional peace in our homes, our marriages, at our jobs, and in our minds. Peace is God’s will for our lives (John 14:27). In order to have God’s version of peace, we must use our God-given authority to declare peace in those areas. Once declared, we can’t be moved by what we see. In the face of chaos, calamity, and delay, we must continue to believe and declare peace. By keeping the faith, peace will materialize in our lives.

Receive the God kind of peace and enjoy more of life.
