What is Peace?

Start-Overs

When we’re tired physically, mentally, or spiritually, we sometimes start to wonder what, exactly, we’re fighting for. We forget what our goals are and even why they became our goals. When tiredness of any kind comes upon us, we must learn to rest. When we’re tired, we make mistakes, and our judgement is not at its best, and that’s when we need to turn to God and give our burdens to Him so we can rest.sunrise

The best way to serve God is to begin anew each day, putting the past behind, the future on hold, and starting the day with hope. There are no do-overs, but every day is a start-over.

 

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

Priceless

The choice to be made is not whether to be sinful or not sinful. The choice is whether we will seek God, love and follow Him, or seek the pleasures of this world. Having sought both, I can tell you the world has one very needful thing missing in its repertoire of earthly offerings: peace. No matter how much wealth, power, and love the world might offer us, none will bring us the peace God can offer. It has been proven time and again that the more earthly possessions one has, the more one seems to want. Enough is an elusive thing.

God's Peace

The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6

All These Things

Jesus hugGod wants us to be at peace with Him and each other, and to be so, we must first seek His wisdom and heart. Matthew Chapter 5—often referred to as the beatitudes—seems designed to guide us to the wisdom that comes from knowing and loving God. God desires for us to be in Him, Him in us, loved, and being loved.

In Matthew 6:33, Jesus says, “But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”  The emphasis in those words should be on the word “all”. When we seek God, He will make us all He intends us to be, and we’ll become peacemakers, not because we desire peace, but because He desires it.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9

God’s Peace
