Reflections: Peace through Faith

Updated: Feb 16, 2022

Letting go of your past as a sinner to find true Peace and Faith as a saint.

God is an supernatural being, beyond the world's capacity of understanding. This is why we have "Faith" in him. The Bible, provides a several of God's promises with only one requirement to receive them: Faith. How much Faith can one have?

Noah had faith to trust God's instructions for building the ark, Abraham had faith to follow God from family and familiar surroundings. He trusted God's plan for him.

What is the easiest way to know we have surrendered ourselves to Jesus Christ and have a heart full of Faith? When we haven't a worry on our mind, our focus is on peace and love, and then there is the unmistakable feeling of closeness to God by the Holy Spirit, a gift from God.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God”

[Ephesians 2:8 New Living Translation].

One must hear the word, read the word and share the word of God according to The Gospels of Jesus Christ. Believe with all your heart and leave all worry to God. Read The Bible, the greatest gift to mankind.

Prayer and Meditation

In my personal journey, I discovered to feel this closeness our focus must be on God our father and Jesus Christ, our redeemer and savior. I found reading the Bible out loud stirred the Holy Spirit in my heart. I could feel the "power of the spirit, the light" God gives us by reading and knowing the word. Power you say? Yes! There is so much power in the words of The Gospel, one can feel worry falling away, trouble fading to nothing, and the "light" of the Lord igniting within you. "But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin" (John 1:7 NLT).

I highly recommend praying and meditation in the early morning. One should have a quiet place to go and pray and talk to God. He loves to hear from us. But we shouldn't lose focus on God when we get in the car and drive to work, we should keep him close. Then if someone cuts us off in traffic, for example, we can react accordingly. This type of focus keeps the tribulations of our daily lives from affecting us and overwhelming us.

You are free! Be free from doubt, free from guilt and your past and free from fear if you have Faith. "Anyone who belongs to Christ is a new person. The past is forgotten, and everything is new" [Corinthians 5:17 Contemporary English Version].

Be Blessed in the name of Jesus Christ.
