How To Be Blessed With Peace

Are you stressed? overwhelmed? fearful? The incredible promises of peace in God’s word are for YOU. Unfortunately, even though we know this, there is often a disconnect between what we know and what we do; a disconnect between what we want and what we’re actually experiencing. God has promised us peace; we want peace, we need peace — but we’re not getting it. Why? What can we do to get it? Listen to this sermon by my late father, Pastor Mike Ellis, to find out how to be blessed with peace.

 

Philippians 4

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!

I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

 

 

“We must first have peace with God before we can have peace from God.”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“Our sinful nature is at odds with God. Once we surrender to God, once we give our lives to Him through the Lord Jesus Christ, once we submit to His rulership over our lives, it changes everything.”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“Peace from God is given, it is not earned. This is grace.”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“I want you to know that God has solutions in His word that are far better than anything this world has to offer.”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“If you’re in Jesus, you’re in the pipeline of God’s blessing. It’s not based on performance; it’s based on God’s grace, which He freely gives to us. Is that good news or what?”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“As long as we’re looking after our own interests we’re opening ourselves up to anxiety.”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“What have you got that Jesus hasn’t got more of?”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“If you take a need to the Lord and you just start fussing about it and fussing about not having it, you’ll feel worse when you’re done praying that you were when you started. Instead, you pray with thanksgiving. It gives us a whole new perspective. Guess who’s in control? God. Guess who has what I need? God. Do we end our prayer as though we’re not going to get it? Or do we end our prayer with thanksgiving and praise because we know that He has made the promise and He is going to do what He promised to do?”
-Pastor Mike Ellis

 

“God doesn’t want you, in your anxiety, to be free from anxiety. He wants you to be filled with hope and thanksgiving.”
-Pastor Mike Ellis
