~The Kingdom Of God Is Within~

The Kingdom Of God Is Within You

The troubles and burdens of this world can be overwhelming. Society can demand much from us. It can leave us stressed, depressed, and filled with anxiety. What has God given us to deal with this? Let’s talk about the gospel of Luke 17:20-21.

God is everywhere and everything. 

Jeremiah 23:24

He is in the material world and the spiritual world. When Jesus says the kingdom of God is within you he is referring to the spiritual world. 

Ephesians 4:6

  Joy is within you, peace is within you, faith is within you, and righteousness is within you.

Point 1: God’s Peace.

When we talk about God’s kingdom within we talk about the peace it gives. God’s peace is always there within us no matter what is going on in our outer world. This peace once recognized and experienced can not be interrupted. It brings joy, tranquility, and clarity to everything you encounter in life. It is available 24/7 and it is within everyone it just needs to be recognized and experienced. It is a wonderful gift from God! 

Point 2:

The peace of God, “which transcends all understanding,” is the harmony and calmness of body, mind, and spirit trusting in the power and grace of God.

The peace of God transcends this world and its trappings. When we experience the peace of God nothing can disturb it.

God’s peace overcomes the world and its troubles. This peace brings joy, clarity, and  general well-being. 

Jesus said he will leave his peace with us. He also says his peace is not the kind of peace the world offers. Worldly peace is only temporary. Money, material things , and success only can give you a temporary peace that is nice in the beginning but fades away soon enough. This material peace is nothing compared to God’s peace. His peace is of the spirit not of the material. 

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness all come from the spirit God has put within us all. A very wonderful blessing from God indeed.

Point 3:

How do we recognize and experience this peace? 

  1. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Do not overthink things simply trust God and trust in his will. Our Heavenly Father knows what is best for us. Truly believe and trust that and have faith. Have absolute faith in God and you will become closer to him which in turn will make you aware of his peace within you. Be also grateful that Jesus taught us, died for our sins, and that he brought us back to God. 
  2. Dont be ruled by material worldly things. Yes those things are in our daily life but do not let them rule over your heart. When all we care about is worldly things it distracts us from God and his peace that he has given us. Setting the mind on spirit can be done through meditation, prayer, and trust in God and Jesus. Meditation is not a dirty word for Christians its only an exercise for the mind to quiet our busy thoughts. Busy thoughts and an over active mind could easily distract us from God’s peace within. Along with focusing on spirit more than material things and overthinking be pure of heart. Always have good intentions in all that you do and peace will be near. 

So imagine always being armed with God’s peace in all we do. We could handle anything that comes our way no matter how difficult. We could more easily deal with those stressful moments. Depression could be overcome and anxiety would transform into the all powerful peace of God.
