Pursue the Peace of God

September 15, 2011

Psalm 34:14 AMP … Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it!

How hard do I seek the Lord’s peace? Do I ask Him for it? Do I crave it? Do I run after it?

Philippians 4:4-9
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!

See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. Rejoice always, -1 Thess 5:15-16

Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
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.

pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. -1 Thess 5:17-18

Lord Jesus, thank You that You are our peace and joy. Help us to rejoice in You always. Show us how to pray without ceasing, and in everything to give thanks. Thank You Jesus that thru You, we have the peace of God which guards our hearts and minds.

Jesus, help us each confidently trust You. Keep our minds stayed, fixed on You. -Isa 26:3
