My peace I give unto you.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. NOTHING. Should take away our peace as Christians. We have the Holy Spirit within us to comfort us. No matter what trial, problems, or issue going on outside of us should affect us inside. People may talk bad about you. Maybe you're not happy because of a situation going on. You may be wishing things were different. They are not. When we have a bad attitude it is only because we want something other than God's will for our lives. Meaning, we are so caught up in what we think SHOULD be happening that we miss out on peace. Of knowing that what is happening is what God has allowed for our good. Yes, it is hard to take. But, the truth is God is a good God. It is when we are unwilling to accept the situation in front of us, that we loose the precious peace from Heaven. Peace. The peace of God, which passeth all understanding! It is beyond comprehension. Do you have it? That blessed peace that only the children of God do? If not, you need to repent of self will. Repent for not believing and trusting that God's heart toward you is a heart of good. He has allowed this circumstance to be for you, to grow and mature. Be willing to yield to God. And when you do, the oh so glorious peace that God gives his own will fill you beyond comprehension. Won't you receive it today?


Psalms 62:5 ~ My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

Thank you for blessing me this afternoon, yes these are all truths that I wholeheartedly believe and agree with but it is a blessing to see someone else say it and remind me of it. Thank you for your boldness and honesty about our Heavenly Fathers’ word! You are 100% right on!

Blessings,

Hallelujah Mercy! I especially like this: When we have a bad attitude it is only because we want something other than God's will for our lives. I totally agree with that statement. Thanks for reminding me.
