You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.
Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
Peace is God’s Promise To Us! - Pastor David Breed
We all need peace in our lives. As we lead our busy lives we need to be able to live our lives in peace. Jesus said He gives us His peace. That is if we take the time to be with Him.
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. John 14:27 (NIV)
The bible says one of my favorite scriptures on peace and I say it over our home all the time.
And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. Isaiah 32:18 (KJV)
The bible says we should sleep in peace.
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe. Psalm 4:8 (NLT)
God has given us over 100 promises in the bible about peace. That is a lot of peace! Take some time aside to spend with God and learn about the perfect peace that belongs to you! You have perfect peace with God!
The Spiritual Blessing of Peace is Yours - Keith Butler
Jesus, Himself, delegated to His disciples the authority to pronounce peace in the homes they visited. A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ. Are you a disciple?
"For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him" (Heb. 7:1).
Let's look at the spiritual blessing of Abraham. Since the Word of God says that we receive the blessings of Abraham, then we had better find out what those blessings are.
Melchisedek is an Old Testament type of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is called "king of Salem," which is, "king of peace." Abraham gave 10 percent of all his possessions to Melchisedek. Then, Melchisedek blessed Abraham.
Now when Melchisedek blessed Abraham, he said something: "…Blessed be Abram of the most high God…." The word "blessed" means to speak well of, or to pronounce. Melchizedek pronounced blessings over Abraham.
Peace is a Great Blessing of God
We see that Jesus, Himself, delegated to His disciples the authority to pronounce peace in the homes they visited. A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ. Are you a disciple?
If you answered yes, then this is for you too.
Jesus told his disciples whatever house they go into that would receive them, to pronounce peace over that house. If there is turmoil there and peace comes in, it is a great blessing. If there is fear there and peace comes in so that you can sleep, that is a great blessing. If there is strife there where everyone is fighting each other, and peace enters in and irons it all out, that is a great blessing.
If He said it to them—and if you are His disciple—He is saying it to you.
When you minister to your relatives, neighbors, or co-workers, you can pronounce peace in their home, and there will be peace there, if they will receive you.
That ought to tell you that there is power in words. And there is power when a person is willing to believe the proclamation that is made over their house.
I want to take this time now to pronounce peace in your home—especially during these times in which we live.
In Jesus' name, I am telling you now that the blessings of the Lord are upon your house. Peace be to your house, in the name of Jesus. Prosperity be to your house. In Jesus' name, the joy of the Lord be in your house today.
In Jesus' name the Holy Ghost lives big in your house, causing everyone in it to get saved and filled with the Holy Ghost. In the name of Jesus, receive the blessing and shout unto God! The blessing is yours.

A Peaceful Mind - Jerry Savelle
However, it’s not automatic. Your part is to keep your mind on Him. Your part is to renew your mind. Your part is to believe what God says about you. Believe you can do what He says you can do, and you can have what He says you can have.
When you are constantly thinking these kinds of thoughts, then it’s going to create an attitude of expectancy. You are going to expect good things to happen in your life. I love the phrase that Oral Roberts coined - Something good is going to happen to you. When you are constantly thinking on the Word, then you will develop a positive attitude and you will begin to expect good things to happen to you.
I’m not saying that you won’t have problems anymore. I’m not saying you won’t have challenges and I’m not saying that you won’t have trials. You will. As long as you are in this world, you will be faced with challenges. But you don’t have to be defeated by them.
If you keep your mind on the Word of God, and keep the Word of God in your mouth, then you will prosper and you will have good success.
You can either fail or you can succeed. You can either live or you can just exist. You can either barely get by or you can prosper in every area of your life. You can have a negative outlook on life or you can have an attitude of expectancy. It’s your choice.
Start renewing your mind and watch the changes that will take place in your life.
Peace Puts You in Charge - Lynne Hammond
Do not fret or have anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours … that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6 – 7 Amp
When we read the story of Queen Esther, we find that when she lifted her problem to God and asked Him for help, something amazing happened. A heavenly kind of peace came upon her. It was the kind of peace 1 Peter 3:4 refers to as “… the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God” (Amp).
That peace had such a powerful effect on the king that when Esther put on her royal robes and walked into his court, he not only held out to her the golden scepter indicating that she was welcome there, he said, “What will you have Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given you, even to half of the kingdom” (Esther 5:3).
Peace put Esther in charge of the situation! Suddenly, instead of groveling at the king’s feet like others had to do, she found herself standing in a position of rulership with the king offering to give her half the country.
Such a thing was unheard of in that culture! Women in Esther’s day— especially in the heathen nation of Persia—were treated as little more than slaves. Considering the fact that Esther had come waltzing into the king’s court without his bidding, it would have been remarkable if he had given her so much as a new pair of shoes or a nice tiara. But half the country? That was nothing less than supernatural.
And it didn’t happen because Esther was somebody special. It happened because she followed God’s instructions. Instead of worrying, she prayed and brought the peace of God on the scene.
You can do the same thing.
When you find yourself in trouble and you’re tempted to fall apart, you can pray instead of fretting and being anxious. You can make your desires known to God, thank Him in advance for answering your prayer, and receive the peace that He gives you.
If you do, you too will enjoy the supernatural favor of the King; and rather than groveling under your circumstances, you’ll end up ruling over them by His authority. You’ll discover just as Esther did that peace truly does put you in charge!
