Seek Peace! 2
“So then let us pursue what makes for peace and mutual upbuilding.” Romans 14:19
We must speak with God’s wisdom, which is a means of ministering grace and peace to others. Our attitude, words, and actions are all forms of prayer and communication. When we speak with wisdom, God will hear us and give us the strength to carry out his plans. May you find God’s wisdom to make the best of your relationships in Jesus’s name.
Seeking peace is an opportunity to connect with God’s plan for your life. It is a way to be more present in the moment of God’s strategy, not in the defect of your mind of being distracted by other people’s thoughts or feelings. The world is full of distractions. Don’t let them stop you from living your life as Christ intended it to be.
In John 14:27, Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
However, we can choose to be happy or unhappy. We can choose to love others with all our hearts and to be kind to ourselves. We can choose to forgive others without fear of retribution or guilt and forgive those who have wronged us. We can choose to be grateful for what God has given us in this life. Whatever you decide to do, make sure that you are doing it right.
I encourage you to take a moment every day and reflect on how much you have been blessed by God, who gives you the gift of life in Christ. It is not easy to seek peace with everyone, but it is possible to present our best selves as a child of God that live fully in God’s presence. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1. Dear Lord, thank you for the peace you give me in this world.
2. Oh Lord, Please help me find my way out of (mention it)_ I am in today in Jesus’ name.
