Day 16

Peace

“Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.” Psalm 119:165

A friend gave me this verse years ago.  This verse has been my companion much like my friend.  When everyday situations steal my peace, this is the verse I return to. 

What are some everyday situations that rob you of peace?  I reflected on some of mine yesterday; comparison, money issues, busyness, and things that are out of my control, just to name a few.

When I go to God’s word and apply it to these situations this is what I find:

comparison: John 21:15-22 the summary: do not look to others, but follow Jesus

money: Matt. 6:25-34 the summary:  to seek Jesus, He knows our needs

busyness: Luke 10:38-42 the summary:  Mary chose Jesus in the midst of busyness

things out of our control: Isaiah 43:1-3 the summary: God has promised to be with us

In all these things, God’s written word points me to God’s living and breathing word, Jesus.  He is our place of peace.
