And, No Matter What
Keep peace within your soul
He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many against me. Psalms 55:18
Sometimes, it feels like the whole world is against us. I was raised by a man who was constantly ranting about how this person, or that group, was out to get him, and life just wasn’t fair. I never saw him at peace. Unfortunately, his ways rubbed off on me, and I spent much of my life fighting against the world, and as a result, I had no peace within my soul.
I didn’t learn to be at peace, and I didn’t one day figure out how to defeat those I perceived to be against me; God delivered me from my enemies—many of them imaginary—and delivered peace unto my soul. That’s not to say I am in a constant state of perfect peace, but I will say, I am learning to let go of the things quicker than I used to, and turn to God for relief from the battles—whether perceived or real—of this world.
When we realize how much God loves us, and begin to spend more time with Him, He gives us peace. Peace is a very addictive thing, and the more I have it, the more of it I want. And the best part is, it is always available for the asking.
Gitch ya some!
