At Peace with God

Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. —Romans 5:1
Read Romans 5:1-11
Where is your hope coming from? We can now have hope through Jesus Christ, we are made righteous in the sight of God. What Jesus did on the cross gives us a sure hope of future glory and eternal life. Ephesians 2 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
Because through faith we have been justified and declared righteous by God, we can now live in freedom. We no longer need to live in fear of God’s wrath and judgment. This means we can now enjoy peace with God! It is written in John 14:27, “Peace I leave you, My peace I give you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, nor fearful.”
What is stealing the peace from your heart? In Jesus, you are born again and are at peace with God. You can now declare God’s promises and victory over your situation.
Lord, I surrender all my burdens to you. I receive your peace, In Jesus name.
