Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Hebrews 12:14 New International Version (NIV)
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
James 3:18 New International Version (NIV)
Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
We can read scriptures and plant them in our minds. God wants us to be peacemakers and live in peace. I love that Colossians 3:15 speaks of letting peace of Christ RULE in your hearts. It becomes time that we purpose peace of mind. So many things can happen in our lives and we are taken off guard at times. The Bible speaks a little more about being a peacemaker.
Matthew 5:6-9 New International Version (NIV)6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
Today I wanted to give your scriptures of peace. There are times in my life when I just stop doing everything and give thanks for the peace of God. I never want to forget all the things God has already brought me through in life and I have seen his miracle working power too.
CALLED TO PEACE ~
God has a plan and I trust that plan. I hope you do too. Let us not forget that our own choices will guide our lives as well. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
