Best Bible Verses for Serenity
Life can be very tough sometimes. Right now especially. Many people are juggling either multiple jobs or unemployment, unfamiliar work-from-home challenges, innumerable financial, familial, and relational pressures — all while navigating through a global pandemic and civil unrest. It is no wonder we find ourselves begging for a moment of peace and tranquility.
Well thank goodness that, come rain or shine, we’ve got the Word of God — the Holy Bible — to lift, comfort, and give us the mental and emotional rest our soul requires. The divinely inspired Word of God offers a vast array of hope-filled and encouraging verses that fill us with an inner peace and quiet we can’t find elsewhere. According to Jesus, this kind of peace is not like what the world gives (Jn 14:27). It is a divine peace – a supernatural peace that transcends the world’s capabilities and our own limited understanding. And, this kind of peace is also God’s deepest desire for every one of us to behold. The overall message is clear: Slow down, My Child, and take a deep breath. Open your heart and trust Me. As you seek Me, I will reward you with an inner peace that will transform your life.
When you have a few extra minutes, find a quiet room and read through these verses. Spend time prayerfully meditating on them. And pay attention to the ones that speak peace and calm to your Spirit; the ones you feel connected to. It will be these verses that lead you in the way in which you should go. The way of serenity. A place we so desperately need to visit from time to time.
So, sit back, relax, and allow your Heavenly Father’s divinely inspired Words to engulf your Spirit, guide you, and fill you with His presence, promises, and, yes, His peace.
Best Bible Verses for Serenity

and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight.

those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in You.

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through Whom we have gained access [by faith] to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God.
