Let the absence of peace in our moments, circumstances and life be our indication and reminder our need to seek the Lord. To stop our stuff, doings and things – and really seek Him. Not to seek Him FOR peace, but to seek Him AS our peace. How do we do this? To come before God, with a humble heart open to hearing Him show us where we may have strayed, have been snared or lack wisdom or understanding. In our fast paced society we can easily take on things that just are not in God’s will or we are pulled with the force of the majority into places He has not called us and next thing you know we are experiencing turmoil, conflict and tension. Jesus promises that He is peace for all who lay hold of Him, He does not lie – so when we do not experience peace that passes all understanding – let this be the place where we put the brakes on and make things right and realign ourselves into the Vine. John 15: 1-8. May the Prince of Peace rule in our hearts today. Amen.
Great peace have those who love Your law,
And nothing causes them to stumble. Psalm 119: 165
For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Is 9:6
You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3
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. John 14:27
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation Eph 2:14
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7,6
