In a world of turmoil and chaos, here are several precious promises of peace for God’s people:

  • “Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness will remain in the fertile field. And the work of righteousness will be peace, and the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. Then my people will live in a peaceful settlement, in secure dwellings, and in undisturbed resting places” (Isaiah 32:16-18).
  • “In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You alone, LORD, have me dwell in safety” (Psalm 4:8).
  • “Let the peace of Christ, to which you were indeed called in one body, rule in your hearts; and be thankful” (Colossians 3:15).
  • You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3).
  • “The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace” (Psalm 29:11).
  • “LORD, You will establish peace for us, since You have also performed for us all our works” (Isaiah 26:12).
  • “For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

Oh for that day when peace becomes eternal!
