How to Maintain Peace in Our Lives

God tells us in His Word,  If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men,” Romans 12:18. In other words live as peacefully as possible with other people. This can be a challenge,  especially if we have daily contact with very stressful people. Seriously how do we set out to accomplish such a goal? How do we stay at peace when our boss is unrealistic with his or her demands? Or our neighbor is so over-the-top emotionally speaking? Or our spouse or child is sick and suffering? How do we hold our peace when life around us is out of control? Let’s look to the Scriptures for realistic daily steps to put into practice in our everyday lives to maintain our peace.

1. One way to maintain our peace is to guard our hearts and minds. And Philippians 4:6-7 tells us how to guard them. It says, Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” We guard our hearts and minds by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving. While we  remember to pray and supplicate, we often forget to do so with thanksgiving on our tongues. And forgetting to be thankful can lead us into whining and complaining, or even into the realm of fear, a stressful mode. While on the other hand being thankful is a positive attribute and it does add to our level of peace by focusing on the right things. Let’s look to step #2 to find out why it is important to have our hearts and minds filled with positive things.

2. “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things and the God of peace will be with you”, Philippians 4:8. Allowing our minds to wander into ungodly thoughts, and conversations zap our peace. Our souls, minds and emotions get bent-out-of shape. These ungodly thoughts and conversations create an atmosphere that is uninviting for the Holy Spirit, our Comforter, to inhabit. Knowing this we all ought to guard our thoughts and conversations with all sincerity and focus on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. If we will do this the God of peace will be with us.

Peace is important to our everyday lives. And God desires us to have His peace, spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically too. And since He provides us with these keys to maintaining our peace, then He obviously holds us responsible to guard our hearts and minds by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving on our minds and tongues. And even tells us what to think about so we can maintain our level of peace.

And let’s end today’s message of peace with these Words of Jesus from John 14:27, 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.

    Becky I was at the filming of It’s Supernatural yesterday 9-19-2019. At the end you mentioned a prayer you’ve been delcaring over yourself for 35 years. Would it be possible to send that to me.
    I’ve struggled since 1999 to fall asleep and stay asleep. I’ve been on a medicine that I don’t want to take. When I don’t take it, I don’t sleep. Also, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. They told me i stopped breathing 73 times in one hour. When I don’t use this machine, I find it very difficult to fall and stay as sleep. Yesterday I realized that fear had a grip on me. I commanded that fear to leave me. I didn’t take the pill either. However, last night was rough. I kept awakening. When I did fall asleep they were nightmares. Woke up at 3:33 a.m. and began to pray in tongues. At this point I had a severe headache. But went back to bed. When I awakened I still had the headache. Even now as I type the headache has worsen. I’ve been praying over myself, but no relief. I pray for others and see many healings and miracles. Would you send me advice and a prayer I can say and confess daily. I believe I am healed and that I don’t need the cpapt to keep me alive. Would appreciate your help. Bless you and thank you so much for responding. It makes it difficult because as of yet my husband doesn’t understand these things. When he finds out that I’m not using the machine (cpap) he may be upset with me. He’s a believer who has a problem with the domonic – he doesn’t believe it. I know its odd. There is a disconnect with us as to the truth of Gods word, eventhough he is saved.

      No weapon formed against me shall prosper, no evil will come near my dwelling, every lying tongue set on fire against me shall be silenced, exposed, and brought to shame in Jesus’ name, amen.

  2. Oni says:

    Sister please give me some words of knowledge from the Lord

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      Oni,
      “The Lord would say to you this day, My Peace I give to you and I do not take it back. You can lay it aside if you want to, but I ask you to hold onto the blessings that I have given freely to you. I love you with an everlasting love”, amen.

  3. Vicky Eckman says:

    My middle sons wife just had our first baby girl. My oldest son and his wife are angry because they named their baby girl the same name they wanted if they had a girl. Also, there have been issues between my two sons since they were little and they don’t like each other’s wives nor do the wives like each other. This is very painful for my husband and I. My middle son swears he doesn’t remember them like the name they liked. I know this is of the enemy. Now, my husband and I are concerned about a split in our Mr family. The oldest son and wife have 2 sons and we don’t know if they are going to try for a 3rd or not. The name meant a lot to them. Please pray!

    1. Becky Dvorak says:

      Dear Vicki,
      In the name of Jesus’ I pray for maturity and forgiveness to truly reign between your sons. Whatever the past hurts and disappointments are they come to the surface and these issues are dealt with for the glory of the Lord, amen.
