Is your life peaceful? If you’re anything like most people I know, the answer is a resounding no! My new peace devotional, Peace in the New Testament, will help you work through what’s holding you back from God’s promise of peace.
What promise? In John 14:27, Jesus says:
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
This verse is both a promise and a command. Jesus gives us peace – we keep fear and anxiety out of our hearts. What a huge, life-altering agreement this verse presents!
See, Jesus’ gift is different than any gift you’ve received before. Because He gives us peace, no refunds, returns, or exchanges. Peace is ours to have… if we could just keep fear and worry out.
I have a feeling that a troubled heart is something you’re familiar with. You wear a lot of hats and have a lot of responsibilities, and if you mess up, there will be consequences that will ripple through your whole life.
I get it, because I feel the same way sometimes, too. And I know most people are suffering under such a heavy burden. But still, Jesus offers peace, and commands us not to be afraid.
So how do you do that?
My Bible study group was wondering the same thing! So I wrote a Bible study about the promise of peace in the New Testament. We studied all the things that get in the way of peace. (And believe me, there are a lot of them!)
By the end of the study, my group had realized that peace isn’t just a happy side effect of being a Christian – it’s something we need to make an effort towards. Jesus says “do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” – those are actions we need to take in order to allow peace into our lives.
I reworked my Bible study into a peace devotional, written for Christians like you. It’s perfect to do in the mornings, to keep your heart in a place of peace while you go throughout your day. Or, do one lesson a week, and practice living out what you learn in between!

Is this a devotional or a Bible study?
The line between devotionals and Bible studies often isn’t clear. But I’m choosing to call this a peace devotional for a few reasons. First, I offer a few of my own opinions and assumptions during the lessons to help you realize some key points about God’s promise of peace. Second, the purpose of this peace devotional isn’t to add to your theological or historical knowledge. It’s to help you identify the areas of your life that are getting in the way of peace and prayerfully overcome them.
