Healing Peace

July 24, 2015

Isaiah 26:3-4 AMP
3 You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. 4 So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].

He leads me beside still waters –

From NetBible Ps 23:2
still waters
peaceful streams
waters of quietness and rest
waters of refreshment

He leads me beside still waters
And restores my soul. –
Ps23:2-3

Peace, peace
Perfect peace
Trust in the Lord
There is healing in the peace of Jesus

For He Himself is your peace …Eph 2:14

Peace like a river flows when you follow His lead.

Isaiah 48:17-18 NLT
17 This is what the Lord says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow. 18 Oh, that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea.

John 14:27 AMP
Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]

Psalm 23:1-3 AMP … THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self);

Isaiah 48:17-18 NIV …This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. 18 If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Peace like a river flows when you follow His lead. 

I was thinking and praying the above scriptures for a friend when the Lord encouraged me with the following song – maybe it will encourage you too!

Beside Still Waters – KNOW!

Follow the Lamb wherever He goes
With all your heart
Be still and know
Beside still waters He will lead
There His peace like a river it flows
There His peace forever it flows.

Taste and see the Lord He is good
Beside still waters
Be still and know.

 

May the Good Shepherd who is also the Lamb, continue to lead you beside still waters where every tear is wiped away. There, taste and SEE that the Lord is good! May you experience the peace of the Lord in a fresh new way TODAY!

.

Psalm 46:10-11 AMP
10 Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Psalm 34:7-10 AMP
7 The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe] and each of them He delivers.
8 O taste and see that the Lord [our God] is good! Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him.
9 O fear the Lord, you His saints [revere and worship Him]! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship Him with godly fear.

Peace Like A River

July 11, 2010

From: Peace, Like a River, Flows…

Rivers seem peaceful to people because they know for sure they’re going to get where they are going
—> and they don’t want to go anywhere else. —Howell Bale

The Lord used the above to really encouraged me!

It’s as if He said to me ‘Trust Me’
Be still and let My peace flow like a river.
I know where you are going
I have prepared it
I am faithful to finish what I have begun
Let My peace carry you.

Trust Me – rest
I have prepared your way.

:)

Isaiah 48:17-18 This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. 18If only you had paid attention to My commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Romans 16:19-20 Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I am full of joy over you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil. 20The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

The above made me think of the dove.

Matthew 10:16 … Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.

From: http://bible.cc/matthew/10-16.htm

10:16 As sheep in the midst of wolves. Defenseless by human means, among the fierce and cruel; among bitter enemies.

Wise as serpents. Prudent, discreet. Serpents are very cautious in avoiding danger.

Harmless as doves. Guileless and innocent as doves. The dove, peaceful, never preying on other birds, has always been a symbol of innocence.

1 Corinthians 14:20 … Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults{mature understanding}.

The peaceful dove, carrying an olive leaf …

Genesis 8:8-12 … Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground. 9But the dove could find no place to set its feet because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark. 10He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. 11When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah[05146] knew that the water had receded from the earth. 12Then he waited yet another seven days, and sent out the dove; but she did not return to him again.

Noah[05146] means ‘rest’. From [05118] which means resting place.

***

The Lord’s dove always finds rest in Him
In the ark of His presence, carried upon the river of His peace
… until the waters recede
… and everything is made new! -Rev 21:1-5

Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest!
Psalm 55:6

Grace and peace to you from God our Father
And the Lord Jesus Christ!

Yesterday at church this song really spoke to me!

I Hear the Words of Love
Lyrics by Horatius Bonar, 1861
From: worshipmatters.com

I hear the words of love, I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty sacrifice and I have peace with God.

‘Tis everlasting peace! Sure as Jehovah’s Name;
‘Tis stable as His steadfast throne, for evermore the same.

The clouds may come and go, and storms may sweep my sky,
This blood sealed friendship changes not: The cross is ever nigh.

My love is oft times low, my joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same, no change Jehovah knows.

I change, He changes not, The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting place, His truth, not mine, the tie.
