“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” Two variations are given in this scripture. The identification of peace being a given is not just in believing He ( Jesus) will give it to the one who seeks, but the scripture clearly states that living in Him is the catalyst that releases peace to the believer. Those who follow the world waiting until they have time to pray, read, study, or consorting to continuously live in the mind of Galatians 5:19 are people of the the world who continuously call for peace, but negate the need to live in the word of God to receive the fulfillment of the WORD. He is saying let go of our thoughts of right and wrong and examine His word for the righteous way. For what change could there be in ones life if they saw no possible fault to go to God in prayer concerning there lack of peace. What is there in man that he or she results to blame others as if they were victimized? We have all fallen short, we say, we think things we shouldn’t, we may even stir the pot of confusion, some lie and manipulate, whatever it is put it on the alter. Search yourself and leave others to search themselves. The Lord is near to those broken to fill there hearts and he is with the sinner, for he loves the sinner, it’s the sin in mans skin God despises.
Searching the heart will allow the unreconciled area with prayer to be exposed realigned and brought into order. Peace can never dwell in confusion there for where Gods servants dwell (peace), the devil and his servant (confusion) must go.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Peace dwells with those who allow it to be so!
Saves lives! Lead a brother or sister, child, aunt or uncle to Christ!
Let’s do this in the spirit of Christ pass this on!
In Jesus name!
Thanks to those who have been interceding with us! What a blessing!
