Judges 6:22-24 – 22 When Gideon realized that it was the angel of the Lord, he cried out, “Oh, Sovereign Lord, I’m doomed! I have seen the angel of the Lord face to face!” 23 “It is all right,” the Lord replied. “Do not be afraid. You will not die.” 24 And Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and named it Yahweh-Shalom (which means “the Lord is peace”). The altar remains in Ophrah in the land of the clan of Abiezer to this day. (New Living Translation)

Why Is Peace Not a Reality In Our Day?

▸ There are circumstances that are ____________________________

▸ There are people who are ____________________________

▸ There problems that are ____________________________

John 14:27 – I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. (The Living Bible)

What Choices Can I Make to Bring Peace Into My Life?

1. I can ____________________________ what I cannot change

Philippians 4:11-13 – 11 . . . I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have and with everything that happens. 12 I know how to live when I am poor, and I know how to live when I have plenty. I have learned the secret of being happy at any time in everything that happens, when I have enough to eat and when I go hungry, when I have more than I need and when I do not have enough. 13 I can do all things through Christ, because he gives me strength. (New Century Version)

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The courage to change the things I can,

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time

Enjoying one moment at a time

Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace

Taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is not as I would have it

Trusting that You, God, will make all things right if I surrender to Your will

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life

And supremely happy with You forever in the next – Amen

2. I can ____________________________ in God’s loving care

Isaiah 26:3 – You, Lord, give true peace to those who depend on you, because they trust you. (New Century Version)

Proverbs 3:5-6 – 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (New King James Version)

Philippians 4:6-7 – 6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. 7 If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. (The Living Bible)

3. I can ____________________________ to God’s loving control

Romans 8:6 – If people’s thinking is controlled by the sinful self, there is death. But if their thinking is controlled by the Spirit, there is life and peace. (New Century Version)

Psalm 119:165 – Those who love your teachings will find true peace, and nothing will defeat them. (New Century Version)
