We want to have peace in our lives, at our jobs, in our homes, and in our relationships or marriages, but more often we find ourselves experiencing fear, worry, and stress. So what can we do to experience God’s peace? In this video, Brandon Bonville shares from the Bible how to move past your fear and worry so that you can rest and enjoy peace from God.



Worry makes waves.


[ Philippians 4:2-3 ]

Now I appeal to Euodia and Syntyche. Please, because you belong to the Lord, settle your disagreement. And I ask you, my true partner, to help these two women, for they worked hard with me in telling others the Good News. They worked along with Clement and the
rest of my co-workers, whose names are written in the Book of Life.

[1 Samuel 18:5-]

Whatever Saul asked David to do, David did it successfully. So Saul made him a commander over the men of war, an appointment that was welcomed by the people and Saul’s officers alike. When the victorious Israelite army was returning home after David had killed the Philistine, women from all the towns of Israel came out to meet King Saul. They sang and danced for joy with tambourines and cymbals.

[1 Samuel 18:7]

This was their song: “Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousand!”

[1 Samuel 18:8-11]

This made Saul very angry. “What’s this?” he said. “They credit David with ten thousands and me with only thousands. Next they’ll be making him their king!”So from that time on Saul kept a jealous eye on David…and he suddenly hurled it at David, intending to pin him to the wall. But David escaped him twice.

Freedom is only found when our identity is detached from everything other than Jesus Christ.


[ Philippians 4:6-7]

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

[Philippians 4:7]

Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

[ Philippians 4:8-9]

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

[ Ephesians 4:23]

Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.

[Philippians 4:10-11]

How I praise the Lord that you are concerned about me again. I know you have always been concerned for me, but you didn’t have the chance to help me. Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with
everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with
a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Even so, you have done well to share with me in my present difficulty.

[Job 1:21]

“The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the Lord!”
