A Peaceful Moment???   A Word from THE WORD!!! #61

Open ye the gates,

that the righteous nation

which keepeth the truth

may enter in.

3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

whose mind is stayed on thee:

because he trusteth in thee.

4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever:

for in the LORD JEHOVAH

is everlasting strength:” Isaiah 26:2-4

Peace is so needed in our world as we read/hear almost daily about the ‘rockets’, ‘drones’, ‘missiles’, and a world with every kind of weapon, agony, and suffering going on around us; and there is only one place to find peace, and that is in JESUS!  Our God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit–is ever present, and Jesus told us that HE is the giver of perfect peace.  And remember peace isn’t simply the absence of conflict, but confidence in the midst of any storm, confidence from, in, and through Jesus!!!

These things I have spoken unto you,

that in me ye might have peace.

In the world ye shall have tribulation:

but be of good cheer;

I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33

Peace I leave with you,

my peace I give unto you:

not as the world giveth,

give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,

neither let it be afraid.”  John 14:27

May our hearts and minds be fixed on Jesus, so that we can and will experience a peace beyond measure or understanding; and oh, how I thank God for that peace–comforting, restoring, precious peace!

And the peace of God,

which passeth all understanding,

shall keep your hearts and minds

through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren,

whatsoever things are true,

whatsoever things are honest,

whatsoever things are just,

whatsoever things are pure,

whatsoever things are lovely,

whatsoever things are of good report;

if there be any virtue,

and if there be any praise,

think on these things.

9 Those things,

which ye have both learned,

and received,

and heard, and seen in me,

do:

and the God of peace

shall be with you.”  Philippians 4:7-9

And just a reminder–peace is part of the “fruit of the Spirit”!  Don’t let the enemy steal that which Jesus provides to and for you today.  When turmoil arises in your life remember to run to the eight things of Paul’s teaching and rehearse them in your mind and heart; I think you’ll find that the enemy can’t stand against these eight traits of God, and when we’re thinking on the things of God, the turmoil may not disappear, but we can find that “peace of God, which passeth all understanding”!  A peace that the world can’t take away from us, because the “world didn’t give it” so “the world can’t take it away” (From “The World Didn’t Give It To Me” by Bill & Gloria Gaither and Bill Paxton -as best as I can determine.).

But the fruit of the Spirit is

love,

joy,

peace,

longsuffering,

gentleness,

goodness,

faith,

23 Meekness,

temperance:

against such there is no law.”  Galatians 5:22-23

 May this encourage your heart today.  Sometimes it’s hard to find peace, but my friend–peace is always where Jesus IS.  I pray that you will run to HIM today and find HIS peace unparalleled!  He has never failed me yet–and He won’t start today!  Blessings on your day–each day!  Love and prayers are sent your way today!

Amen and Amen!!!
