The Best Way To Find Peace Of Mind And Heart

Peace of mind and heart

Peace has become a prevalent topic of discussion in recent times, with many individuals actively pursuing it. Various avenues claim to offer pathways to peace. Frequently, quotes advocating for a conscious decision towards peace, such as “I choose peace,” are encountered. But is peace truly a matter of choice? I’ve noticed a contemporary notion of peace that involves severing ties, disengaging, and seeking solitude. While these actions may have their merits, they pale in comparison to the essence of genuine peace. In this article, I aim to assert that peace is not merely a decision but a gift.

1. The Gift Of Peace

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.” (John 14:27)

These wonderful words expressed by Jesus, the Prince of Peace, beautifully capture the essence of peace. Peace stands as one among the myriad spiritual blessings bestowed by God. God’s gifts simply surpass human understanding, they are so expansive no measuring technique can compute them. True peace stems from inner contentment and joy, independent of external conditions.

Paul authored his letters to the churches while in prison, yet his writings do not reflect any internal turmoil. Throughout his letters, he consistently emphasizes the belief that God is the ultimate provider of peace, a sentiment he underscores at the beginning of each of his letters: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2. The Fruit Of The Holy Spirit

Upon embracing Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior in our lives, we are bestowed with the Holy Spirit, whose presence is evidenced through a profound sense of inner peace. One can recognize they have attained inner peace when external circumstances hold no sway over their internal state. This serene detachment is profound, it allows for restful slumber despite any external turmoil. The peace of God defy the laws of cause-and-effect. Amidst a storm, where anxiety and fear reigns, those who possess the peace of God find themselves serenely at rest. Peace is one of the many divine fruits given through the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), read more on how to receive the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Peace does not mean you are not cognizant of what’s around you, this is called ignorance. There’s a saying which goes: “what you don’t know cannot hurt you”, this is man’s attempt to attain peace through ignorance. But we as believers in Christ can say: “what we know cannot hurt us.”

3. Maintaining Inner Peace

We may observe and experience the currencies plummeting, political systems disintegrating, yet our lives are marked by inner calmness, the Holy Spirit cushions our inner being from fear and panic. The United Nations will always fail dismally at giving peace because peace is not derived from a pact, neither can it be created by man – it is a gift from God.

Believers when faced with hardships, the method to maintain our inner peace is through prayer. Paul writes in Philippians 4:6-7:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

4. The Manifestation Of Peace

There’s an inexplicable sense of calmness and lightness after a period of prayer – a manifestation of the peace of God. Through prayer, we center our attention on God, recognizing His profound love, expressing gratitude, and admiring His magnificent creations. This practice diminishes the significance of our problems or areas of concern to the point where they no longer have a substantial impact on us.

5. Prayer

Dear reader, may you find solace in the transcendent peace of God that surpasses understanding. If you have come across this article and seek to embrace the divine gift of peace, consider offering this prayer and commit to daily reading and meditation on the word of God.

Dear Heavenly Father

Today I accept your Son Jesus as my Lord and Savior

I believe He died for my sins and rose from the dead. Today I turn away from my sins and invite your Son to come into my heart and life.

I accept the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me in all truth from today and onwards.

Thank you for blessing me with every spiritual blessing, which include peace, joy and love in Christ.

Amen.
