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. There is no battle 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, so we can rest in God’s peace. Scripture also teaches us that those who keep their minds fixed on God and not on the things around them, God will keep them in perfect peace for they trust in Him. You do this by getting a picture of God’s truths established in your heart. When you do peace will be the result.
When we know that we have peace with God and we walk in that peace by focusing our thoughts on Him, peace will surround you. You won’t be depressed, full of fear, and doubt God. Peace will be present and therefore your faith will work for you, leading you into a victorious life. So don’t run from God, run to Him and focus your thoughts upon Him, because as believers we have been given peace with God.
