“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.
