35 comforting bible verses about peace

When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade, but instead come to Jesus. In Matthew 11: 28, Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Jesus is not indifferent to our suffering. He knows, sees, and feels the pain we suffer because he was once in bone and flesh, too. Jesus knows suffering all too well. Which is why, he doesn’t expect us to carry our burdens on our own. He expects us to give our burdens to him. Jesus gives peace to all those who come to him. So, whether you’re tired of carrying your heavy burdens or simple seeking for peace, here are 35 comforting bible verses about peace for you to cling to.
