I think of the scripture in Romans 5:1 that says, "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God." NASB?

I think it means that we are "in right relationship with God." No separation.

Just a quick thought - it's much different than just "being at peace with yourself", like some say.... Maybe more later!

I use "I am at peace with God" quite a bit in my posts. When I say that, it means I have no questions about my belief, my religion, or my service to
God.. My peace comes from deep within my very soul. I feel I have finally established a personal relationship with God that is free from any artificial doctrine..My peace has no religious boundries..It has given me an understanding and acceptance of believers and nonbelievers alike. My peace has allowed me to be free of the guilt I carried for many years of serving family and doctrine that I was uncomfortable with. Maybe it comes from so many years of holding my faith and beliefs inside myself and pretending to man that I believed what I didn't. My peace didn't happen all of a sudden in a dream, vision, or voice from heaven. My peace grew..over time as my relationship and faith in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit developed.. Now I am sure and unashamed to say, " I am at peace with God ,and He is pleased.

Jesus said He gives us a peace the world cannot give us, that is what I have in my heart, His peace. To KNOW I am forgiven, to KNOW I am saved, to KNOW He loves me.

From my personal perspective, I am at peace when I know I have been obedient and that I am in the perfect will of God. "It is well with my soul."

To be at peace with God is to no longer be at enmity with Him. When once we were the enemy of God, through the washing away of sins by the blood of Jesus we are brought back into a right relationship with Him.

Beyond that, Blue62 laid it out. That relationship with Him brings about the Lord's peace and joy.

When I am resting in Him and Him alone; after I've tried doing everything my way and realize that it was only I that moved away from His care; as He told us "Come unto me all you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest".............
When I've totally surrendered all to Jesus
