by Josh Wiley · Print Print · Email Email

Are you struggling with an area of your life today and looking for peace? The Bible has some great verses about the topic of peace. This article will guide you through some of my favorite peace Bible verses and give you some areas of your life you can focus on to lead to peace.  I pray these scriptures are helpful today. If you have another great peace Bible verse that was not on this list, please add it to the comments. I encourage you to study the Bible deeper by looking up these verses and getting the context they come from. There are many other great resources out there also to learn on Bible study topics.

What Jesus Said About Peace

When we study the Bible and the topic of Peace, a great place to start is with the words of Jesus Christ.  These passages are some of the favorites of mine and many other people as they speak comfort and courage into my life. When I struggle with anxiety, I look no further then Jesus saying in John 16:33 that He has overcome this world and gives us peace. We can rest safely in our salvation and cling to these words from our Savior.

Matthew 5:9  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Matthew 11:28-30  Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

John 14:27  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

John 16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 20:19  On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them,  “Peace be with you.”

Bible Verses for PeaceThings You Can Do To Increase Peace

The Bible is full of direction and instruction. The topic of Peace is a great one as the Bible has given us so many Scriptures that speak to specific things we can do to gain that Peace that transcends all knowledge. Take one or two of these things today and start applying them to your life and watch as you become more at peace.

  • Prayer

Philippians 4:6-7  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

  • Serving Christ

Romans 14:17-19 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.

  • Love

2 Corinthians 13:11  Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another,agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

  • Obedience

1 Peter 1:2 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood:  May grace and peace be multiplied to you.

  • Trust

Isaiah 12:2  “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.”

  • Faith

Romans 5:1  Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

Living in Peace With Others Scriptures

Christians are to speak truth to the lives of those that are lost but we are also to show what Christianity is by being at peace with them. Read these New Testament Bible Scriptures on Peace and lay them next to your daily life. Are there areas that your life is not aligning with these passages? Now is the time to change!

Mark 9:50  Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

Luke 6:27 But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

Romans 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all.

1 Corinthians 7:15 But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace.

James 3:18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Other Great Peace Bible Quotes and Scriptures

I will leave you with these four great quotes from the Bible on peace. Isaiah 9:6 is another one of my favorites as it gives such great descriptions of Jesus and calls Him our Prince of Peace.

Numbers 6:25-26 the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Romans 8:6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

Christian Quotes About Peace

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.  –  C.S. Lewis

I have to get to the point of the absolute and unquestionable relationship that takes everything exactly as it comes from Him. God never guides us at some time in the future, but always here and now. Realize that the Lord is here now, and the freedom you receive is immediate.  –  Oswald Chambers

Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace… If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you know what His will is.  –  Amy Carmichael

TIMOTHY NNAJI October 31, 2012 at 7:48 am


unto the brethren and the elders of the church of GOD.grace be to you and peace from our lord JESUS CHRIST.Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world,according to the will of GOD and our father,to WHOM be glory for ever and ever.Amen
Igreet you all in the name of the LORD.

Honestly I don’t know how to start this,but there’s a proverb that says: “Even a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step”.and the bible encourages us as christian,to be in peace with all men,i said let me take this step.
Believe me, what happened between us has been weighing on my heart for a while now.I have only just worked up the courage to write this letter to the the shame of the devil and his agents.
What can I say, you were right, and I was wrong,i sincerely apologize once again for what happened between us.Mathew 5 vs 23 to 24.says if thou bring thy gift to the altar.and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee.leave there thy gift before the altar.and go thy way,first be reconciled to thy brother.and then come and offer thy gift.please for heaven sake i ask for your forgiveness once again,i take full responsibility for everything thathas happened,for the srcripture says,there is not a righteous man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinneth notî. Well, I admit it – I have sinned.please find it in your sincere heart to forgive me,thank you and God bless you all in Jesus name.

I have been struggling for peace lately from the people who are very dear and close to me. I have fasted and prayed and asked if God will lead me to scriptures of peace. I came upon your page. Thank you as I find peace in my home, husband, finances and sons.I pray God will lead me to pages like this to do so God Bless you in your journey.


Pinkangel May 10, 2014 at 9:25 am

I have quite a journey myself. I have had a very hard life all my life , always trying to find “Perfect Peace”. It seems as though I finally found the perfect man for me, and a beautiful life as I have believed this was the leading of the Lord, And I ask the Lord to PLEASE help me though this trying time. I have a wonderful man in my life, a great God fearing man, however, his daughter has some serious problems emotionally and it’s taking such a terrible toll on us. She is suicidal. We planned to marry but her attitude towards us being together has put such a very trying toll on us. (from my understanding, she is Atheist) We love each other very much, but, It looks as though it’s possible that this might tear us apart. Her happiness is extremely important to him and I know he loves both of us. He is the type of person who would put his happiness over hers. I fear that this will not work for us. But yet, all that has transpired between us, before, rang a strong pull of the Lord putting us together. Even his parents believe that we are meant to be. I need help,, prayer, myself because I am becoming confused and depressed.. I do understand how he feels, I have raised children myself. I do care about this girl, and I do not want to be a part of anything that would cause her such distress!! I just ask for prayer.. thank you..


Cathy Witthoeft May 29, 2014 at 12:38 pm

Just a thank you for your compilation of scripture on peace. Had to speak to a friend and concerned over my motives, and God’s will being done. Needed peace and be able to speak. Hard truth. Again thanks & God bless you and yours and this ministry He has given you. 🙂
