8 Ways to Lose Your Peace by Elisabeth Elliot

Resent God’s ways.

Worry as much as possible.

Pray only about things you can’t manage by yourself.

Refuse to accept what God gives.

Look for peace elsewhere than in Him.

Try to rule your own life.

Doubt God’s word.

Carry all your cares.

If you’d rather not forfeit your peace, here are eight ways to find it (antidotes to the above eight):

“Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them” (Psalm 119:165 KJV). “Circumstances are
the expression of God’s will,” wrote Bishop Handley Moule.

“Don’t worry about anything whatever” (Philippians 4:6, PHILLIPS).

“In everything make your requests known to God in prayer and petition with thanksgiving. Then the peace of God…
will guard your hearts” (Philippians 4:6,7, NEB).

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me… and you will find rest” (Matthew 11:29, NIV).

“Peace is my parting gift to you, my own peace, such as the world cannot give” (John 14 27, NEB).

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts” (Colossians 3:15, NIV).

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing” (Romans 15:13, KJV).

“Cast all your cares on him for you are his charge” (1 Peter 5:7, NEB).

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”
