Peace by Peace

Updated: Jan 16

In English, the word “peace” conjures up a passive picture, one showing an absence of

civil disturbance or hostilities, or a personality free from internal and external strife.

The biblical concept of peace is larger than that and rests heavily on the Hebrew root

slm, which means “to be complete” or “to be sound.” The verb conveys both a dynamic

and a static meaning— “to be complete or whole” or “to live well.”


God’s work in our life is done peace by peace, like a puzzle, his love, grace, and mercy

transforms not only our circumstance but most importantly our inner being.


“He guards in perfect peace those who’s thoughts are focused on Him” - Isaiah 26:3

When we surrender our thoughts, our feelings, our questions, and doubts, He guards us. As a child I struggled with extreme fear, being a child from a broken marriage didn’t allow me much space to feel safe. But as I researched and meditated on peace, I never knew it would heal my fear, it did because Christ is our peace. Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6–7) and here are some verses that show us what He provides for us:


· We can be full of peace (Psalm 34:14)

· We can have peace with God (Isaiah 53:5)

· The peace Jesus gives us is different than the world’s peace (John 14:27)

· Jesus gives us peace (Romans 5:1)

· Peace is evidence of the Holy Spirit working in our lives (Galatians 5:22)

· We can have peace through prayer (Philippians 4:4–7)
