Just Like The River Flows: Spiritual Peace In Your Life

Have you ever had the chance to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation by taking a stroll along the edges of a quietly flowing river under the illuminating rays of the slowly fading evening sunshine?

The peace and serenity experienced in such a moment are fulfilling, healing, and rejuvenating to the mind and soul. The spiritual peace encountered at such a time is one to be treasured.

Allow Spiritual Peace to Flow in Your Life

Imagine yourself quietly sitting by the edge of a river, letting the water flow over your feet, soothing and refreshing your soul and mind simultaneously.

The inner peace found in nature will undoubtedly inspire you to reflect on the beauty of your dreams, your relationship with God, and the pure artistry of His creation.

What Do a River and God’s Peace Have in Common?

Reading through the Bible, you will realize that God uses a river to explain something of great significance to your life—the divine peace and joy from Him!

You might be asking yourself: What is the meaning of spiritual peace?

In Isaiah, the Bible says:

For this is what the LORD says: 

“I will extend peace to her like a river and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you, and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

Isaiah 66:12-13

The Church, which you are a part of, is the “her” God refers to in this scripture. Like a river, He extends His peace to us each day in every challenge we encounter in our physical and spiritual lives.

What Is the Meaning of Spiritual Peace?

According to the Bible, spiritual peace, or the peace of God, surpasses all human understanding and is the calmness experienced in the body, mind, and spirit while trusting in God’s divine power and grace in all circumstances.

It is a blessing from God to you!

In Philippians, the Bible says:

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
