How to Find Inner Peace

You’re not the first person looking for inner peace. Many have searched for a solution and the results all read about the same.

  • 7 Steps to Find Your Inner Peace and Happiness
  • How to Look Within For Your Peace
  • Achieve Your Inner Peace Today

They all talk about things like control, balance, worry and stress. They come with suggestions like:

  • Meditate and be still. Slow down.
  • Be grateful and smile more.
  • Focus on your breathing. Stay calm.
  • Spend time outside and be in nature.
  • Help others and do good deeds.

There are many more recommendations, and some work better than others. But, none of them ever give you the internal peace you’re seeking.

The evangelist Billy Graham once said, “Suppose you had all the knowledge and all the wealth and all the power in the whole world today and lost your soul. You see, the whole country is on a quest for something, in drugs, in sex, and in entertainment. We want something, but we don’t know quite what it is. And it’s elusive; we don’t find it.”

There’s an empty space inside of each of us and people believe they can fill it with various things to satisfy their need. They believe their lives will be full of contentment, happiness and peace once they fill that internal void.

Billy Graham went on to say, “Solomon was the great king of Israel… His income was staggering. Nobody that ever lived in history could compare with Solomon in financial worth. Anything he could dream of, he had it. You know how many wives he had? Seven hundred, but that didn’t satisfy… Every pleasure at his beck and call. He thought it would bring the peace that he longed for and then he said, ‘But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless.’ It was a bubble that burst. It didn’t satisfy. Something beyond it satisfies. What is it?”

People have tried to find inner peace through experiences, fame, achievements, money, sex and everything under the sun. There’s a much better answer to the question.

Graham concludes, “Deep in your heart, something is missing. You don’t know what it is. The thing that’s missing is that personal relationship with Christ.”

Let Jesus Christ change your life and give you the inner peace you desire.


Step 1 – God’s Purpose: Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and eternal life—abundant and eternal.

The Bible says:

"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

"I [Jesus] came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
John 10:10

Why don’t most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have?

Step 2 – The Problem: Sin Separates Us

God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and freedom of choice. We choose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.

The Bible says:

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 6:23

Our choice results in separation from God. People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God...

The Bible says:

"There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death."
Proverbs 14:12

"But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear."
Isaiah 59:2

No bridge reaches God... except one.

Step 3 – God’s Remedy: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.

The Bible says:

"For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."
1 Timothy 2:5

"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God."
1 Peter 3:18

"But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8

God has provided the only way... Each person must make a choice...

Step 4 – Our Response: Receive Christ

We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

The Bible says:

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with Me."
Revelation 3:20

"But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God."
John 1:12

"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Romans 10:9

Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

Here is how you can receive Christ:

We suggest a prayer like this one:

"Dear God, I know I am a sinner. I want to turn from my sins, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe He died for my sins and that You raised Him to life. I want Him to come into my heart and to take control of my life. I want to trust Jesus as my Savior and follow Him as my Lord from this day forward. In Jesus' Name, amen."
