How to find peace when my life is hard?
Good question, and I promise you that I will not lie to you. Finding peace when everything around you is falling apart is impossible.
It can literally frustrate to the point where you will just want to throw your hands in the air a give up.
I have been down that road so many times that I now marvel at how I allowed myself to fall right into Satan’s trap.
I worried 😟, stressed, cried, and still my life got harder. It was then I realized that outside of God’s mercy, that he only moves when there’s faith.
So I prayed for mercy and then become to build my faith.
God showed me mercy and today I will reveal three things that you will need to do to find peace amidst a storm.
Prayer is the life line of believer, the day you gave up on prayer is the day you will faint by virtue of the devil’s fury.
I am not saying that praying while being battered will be easy, but you will have to trust God for grace to pray and keep praying.
Trust me, there will come a point in your life when God will show on your behalf.
One thing about fervent, effectual prayer is that it moves the hand of God and compels creation to act on your behalf.
I highly recommend that you add fasting to your prayers as well. Doing so will help to hasted the journey.
Also, prayer helps you to feel connected to God and find comfort in knowing that He is always with you.
That you can express your thoughts and feelings to Him, ask for His help and guidance, and thank Him for His blessings.
2. Read the Bible
Imagine that you are a carpenter and someone hired you to do a job and you show up to do the job only to realize that you have not walked with tour tools.
Do you thing that you would be able to get the job done? Of course not, given that the job requires a specific sets of tools to be completed.
The same is true when you don’t have or know the spoken words of God.
The spoken words of God is like a sharpe sword in the hand of a warrior, with it, you are sure of victory. But without it, you are sure of defeat.
This means that no matter how hard life gets you must at all times read scriptures.
See what God says about peace relative to the situation you are facing and then build your faith on what God said.
You are sure of victory and peace if you follow this simple but powerful principle.
3. Seek support from the body of Christ.
Be it your physical church community, online church community, or wherever believers are, you can tap into the power of the Holy Spirit working in the life of other believers.
Let me explain, you see, God is so powerful that you can connect to other believers whether by going to church, requesting prayers from your church community, reading (as you are doing here) or listening to faith-inspired exhortations is enough to build your faith to believe God.
In other words, when you connect with other faith-filled believers you too can build your faith and invite God to help you.
Prayers, reading scriptures, and connecting with others are three of the most powerful things you can do to find peace when life is hard.
Do them and you will always overcome, fail to follow them and you will have a hard time finding peace when life gets hard.
There are other things such as practicing gratitude, worship, and trusting God’s plan for your life.
Together, all of these principles can help you to find the peace of God under any circumstances no matter how adverse and hard life gets.
Final word on peace
These scriptures show us that peace is a central part of our faith as Christians and it is very important.
Whether it is peace with God, peace in our hearts, peace with others, or peace in the world, we are called to seek it and live it out in our lives.
I hope our collection of peaceful scriptures have indeed blessed and inspire you to believe God and find the peace you need admist life’s storms.
