The fruit of the Spirit is… peace.
To be spiritually minded is life and peace. God has called us to peace. • Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. • The God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. • You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. • Whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil.
Great peace have those who love Your law.
Galatians 5:22, Romans 8:6, 1 Corinthians 7:15, John 14:27, Romans 15:13, 2 Timothy 1:12, Isaiah 26:3, Isaiah 32:17-18, Proverbs 1:33, Psalm 119:165
The Lord is there.
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them.
I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.
I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness. • Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. For I will acquit them . . . of bloodshed, whom I had not acquitted; for the Lord dwells in Zion. • “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says the Lord. • There shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.
