Psalm 34:14 - ......Seek peace and pursue it.
I just had to do it! Yesterday morning I put on my Yaxtrax and ventured out for my run/walk in the stillness of the fallen snow. Peace surrounded me....it was so calm and beautiful! But is this what we are to seek? The world teaches us to seek money, fame, fortune, knowledge. And some pursue those things with all their might and in doing so loose their peace! There are a lot of paradoxes in the Bible....things that just don’t make sense from the worldly view. God tells us to seek His peace. It’s the kind of peace that surpasses all understanding. Peace is that ultimate trust in God...in His perfect timing. It’s living in the now. Not jumping ahead into worrying about tomorrow. Yes, we all might have something stir up some blood pumping stress in our day to day life but if you look back at it, often it is our reaction to the situation that causes us to loose our peace. When Jesus left this world, He left his disciples and us with an incredible gift....His peace! “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27) Jesus gave His perfect peace to us! Be persistent and pursue it! It’s a precious gift we don’t want to loose! ~•~
