Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,…
Through Jesus we have been given peace with God. The word peace means to be one with, a state of harmony. Once born again we become one spirit with the Lord. As Jesus is so are we in this present age because we are one with Him. There is no war between you and God because you are one with Him. The devil does all he can to convince believers that God is mad at them so that they won’t draw near to God. But when Jesus bore our sin He also bore the punishment our sin deserved. The Word of God tells us we will not face the wrath of God to come. Scripture also teaches us that those who keep their minds fixed on God, not on the things around them, God will keep them in perfect peace for they trust in Him. When we know that we have peace with God and we walk in that peace by focusing our thoughts on Him, trusting in our God, peace will surround you. You won’t be depressed, fearful, and doubt your God. Peace will be present and therefore your faith will work for you leading you into a victorious life. So don’t run from Him, run to Him and focus your thoughts upon Him because He has given us peace.
