Fruit Of The Spirit Affirmations— Peace

Continuing on in our look at each of the fruits of the Holy Spirit and how affirming them cultivates intentional mindfulness within us.

Affirmations are a statement intended to provide encouragement, emotional support, or motivation, 

In Philippians 4:8, Paul gives us instructions on what we should think or meditate about. 

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.

Philippians 4:8— NLT

According to Wikipedia, In common language usage, “fruit” usually means the seed-associated fleshy structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible. The fruits of the Spirit are fine points that should naturally grow out of the proceedings of the Holy Spirit in our life. 

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Galatians 5:22-23— NLT

Fruits of the Spirit affirmations are based upon Scripture to inspire us to cultivate the fruits of the Spirit in our daily lives. The word “Spirit” in these affirmations will be capitalized because these are fruits given to us by the Holy Spirit, not ourselves. 

The fruits of the Spirit are:

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Longsuffering
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-control

Each affirmation consists of scriptures, positive affirmations, and questions to motivate you to go deeper in meditation and study time.  

Say the affirmations and scriptures out loud as you work through the study.

Peace

The world is uncertain. Jobs and the economy are not secure. Marriages, at times, crumble. Many neighborhoods aren’t safe. There is drought, famine, floods, and much more.

But where does this uncertainty leave us? Sometimes— but not always— we might want to crawl under a rock and just hide, cocooning ourselves safely inside.

Imagine this: A raging ocean with waves crashing on a craggy and rocky coastline. Ocean spray spraying into the sky. Churning waves and black and gray storm clouds fill the sky above. But, suddenly, you see something, squinting now. Your eyes are drawn to two rocks leaning against one another, fashioning an opening there was a white form. Could it be? To your amazement, it’s a slumbering seabird, nestled in its nest, safe from the storm because of the shelter of the rock. The little bird was at peace, although a storm raged around her.

Here are affirmations and verses about peace to help you learn about the real peace the Spirit offers us and through us. 

Heavenly Peace

— God’s heavenly peace encompasses every aspect of my life. With His peace, my heart is calm, and I do not fear. I choose to dwell on the lasting peace the Spirit gives me. 

 Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]

John 14:27— AMP

Purposeful Peace

— I choose to plant a seed of peace. I may not see an immediate harvest of peace. By placing my peace in the Master Farmer, a seed is planted, and he will bring a harvest of peace into my life.

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who cultivate peace. 

Jamen 3:18— HCSB

Legacy Peace

The peace from Christ is His legacy to me. I choose to pass down this legacy of peace to others. Click To Tweet

—The peace from Christ is His legacy to me. I choose to pass down this legacy of peace to others.

Let the peace of Christ, to which you were indeed called in one body, rule in your hearts; and be thankful.

Colossians 3:15— NASB

Strong Peace

— When adversaries come against me, I will depend on the strength of the Lord. When I rely on heavenly strength, I have a blessed peace even amid life’s storms.

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11— NIV

Psalm 29:11— NIV
