What Jesus said about peace.

What Jesus said about Peace.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?… for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Matthew 6:25,33

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.John 14:1,2

The Peace of God

Jesus said: My peace I leave with you; My own peace I now give and bequeath to you…Do not let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27

Other peace scriptures

Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus   Philippians 4:6,7

Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.Isaiah 26:3

And above all these put on love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness which binds everything together completely in ideal hormony. And let the peace soul harmony which comes from Christ rule act as umpire continually in your hearts deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state to which as members of Christ’s one body you were also called to live. And be thankful appreciative, giving praise to God always. Let the word spoken by Christ the Messiah have its home in your hearts and minds and dwell in you in all its richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom in spiritual things, and as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with His grace in your hearts. Colosians 3:14-16 AMP


Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken from her.Luke 10:38-42


Jesus took our grief and bore our sorrows at Calvary, He died for the chastisement of our peace, just as much as for deliverance from sin and healing of the physical body. He said my peace I leave you so don’t let your heart be troubled.

Instead we are called to cast your cares upon Jesus by prayer with thanksgiving. Then meditate on His word rather than the problems. By this we can know perfect peace, the peace of Jesus and the peace of God.

Jesus exhorts us all to be a Mary and not a Martha from the example in Luke 10:38 above. Seeking the kingdom of God and all the things we need will be added unto us and the things that are less important will fade away.

Finally the peace of God will guide you in all circumstances of life.


To receive the peace of God you must first be born again then meditate on the words of Jesus above, then take any concerns to God in prayer, and finally by faith trust Him to be able to take care of it for you.
