The Peace of God


Review this week's message.

Key Scriptures

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.
Philippians 4:6-9 NIV

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
Romans 8:5-6 NLT

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • What’s something that triggers an instant fear response from you? Any funny stories?
  • Describe a moment of true peace. What’s happening? Where are you? What are you thinking about?

Start thinking. Ask a thoughtful question.

  • Read Romans 8:5-6. How is this Scripture similar to the way your brain naturally works? How is it different?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.

  • What are some of the root causes for worry and stress in your life?
  • Describe a recent circumstance that really stressed you out. How does Philippians 4:6-9 change the way you’ll respond next time?
  • What are some specific habits you want to form in order to replace worry with trust in God and His truth?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

Heavenly Father, we trust You. Thank You for giving us Your truth through the Bible. Thank You for giving us Your Holy Spirit to rely on. Thank You for Jesus who sets us free from worry and anything that gets us stuck in life. Teach us to seek You and Your peace regularly in prayer. Amen!

Start doing. Commit to a step and live it out this week.

  • Start a good habit. Every single time you catch yourself worrying or stressing about something, put it in the prayer box and give it back to God.
  • If you haven’t yet, identify the truth your brain needs. Then write it, think it, and confess it until you believe it!
  • Learn God’s truth about rewiring your brain with the Mastermind Bible Plan:
