Bible Verses About Peace
The world is filled with trial and hardship. It’s easy to become more worried and anxious every day as you face relationship struggles, financial problems, bad news, and grief. The Bible tells us that Jesus came to give us peace! If we seek out God’s plan for peace in our lives, through spending time in Scripture and praying, we can experience a “peace that passes understanding” (Philippians 4:7) – it’s a promise!
Psalm 29:11 NIV
11 The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Psalm 85:8 NIV
8 I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants- but let them not turn to folly.
Psalm 32:7 NIV
7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Isaiah 26:3-12 NIV
3 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. 4 Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal. 5 He humbles those who dwell on high, he lays the lofty city low; he levels it to the ground and casts it down to the dust. 6 Feet trample it down- the feet of the oppressed, the footsteps of the poor. 7 The path of the righteous is level; you, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. 8 Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws,Or “judgments”we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. 9 My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. 10 But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the majesty of the Lord. 11Lord, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them. 12 Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.
Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
John 14:27 NIV
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Romans 15:13 NIV
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit
