Faith and Peace (Romans 5:1-2)

Today’s scripture: Romans 5:1-2

If you started reading this devotional in 2017, you know that we began the year talking about peace, one of my favorite topics.

In the Bible, peace and faith often go hand-in-hand.

When we have faith in God and trust Him to complete His will according to His love for us, we often find peace despite our circumstances.

It’s almost a mathematical hypothesis: If we have faith in God, then we are justified. If we are justified by faith, then we have peace.

I’ve said it before—and I’ll say it again—true peace is found only through faith in God. We stand firm on His grace and unmerited favor and experience His mercy.

We see His hand at work in all things, and we know He has a perfect plan, one of peace and not disaster as one version of Jeremiah 29:11 states.

Are you feeling peace-less? Then put your faith in God. Accept His peace promised through our Lord Jesus Christ.
