Peace of God Devotional Poetry, Biblical Poems

Biblical Poetry
Early in 2017, I felt prompted by the Lord to start writing Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This is something I've never attempted before, but felt very drawn to it by the Lord. In obedience to Him, I have sensed a whole new realm of God's grace as I have begun to write in this way. I hope you enjoy them.

The Peace of God

By Ken L Birks

From sin and the wayward way, we’re lost within.

Guilt, condemnation and shame engulf the soul.

Is there any relief from the heaviness that overwhelms?

Oh that a way would be provided from the torment, therein.


Behold, the Lamb of God comes to take away sin and shame.

With His blood now shed, our souls are cleansed and atoned for.

His peace comes like a river, washing the torment away forever

Because life in the flesh is in the blood, atonement must be with His shed blood.

Jesus, the Passover Lamb provides the perfect sacrifice from His endeavor.

With His atonement comes new life breathed into our spirits, to whomever.

Our spirits now soar, free of all sin and shame as freedom fills our hearts.


Problems, troubles and trials come like a mighty tide to pull us under.

He takes us by the hand and pulls us up as we cry out from blunder

Oh, you of little faith, why did you doubt and not believe?

In our weakness, He reaches out in mercy. With just a touch, He relieves.

The peace of God floods our souls as we are rescued in wonder.


Anxiety takes hold as we are flooded with uncertainty from the future so blurred.

Financial security, food, clothing, and shelter fill our minds with worry.

The peace of God that surpasses understanding comes as we cling to His Word.

His Word promises us all things that pertain unto life as we put Him first.


We give thanks to Him above who provided the perfect sacrifice.

He is our faithful High Priest who sympathizes with our weaknesses.

We give thanks to Him who continually provides for all of our needs.

In moments of unbelief, He readily forgives and sets us free, so precise.

We give thanks to Him who continually fills us with His peace.


This poem describes how God's peace can be with us not matter what the situation.
