“Too long has my soul had its dwelling with those who hate peace. I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war.” (Psalm 120:6-7)
We live in a world that is at war against the Lord. They are also at war against one another. The heart of the Lord is love and peace. Those who hear the voice of the Lord long for peace. Come then into the Lord’s presence and be one of peace and not war. Dwell in the presence of the Lord and learn the eternal values He offers by grace. Know His goodness and the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Lord, I am in conflict. You know the hearts of all of those who dwell in this age. There is war amidst the longing for peace. You have promised Your peace to those who come to You. Grant that I would be a person of peace and live the way You have directed me to live. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that, in spite of what happens around me, I would pass on Your peace to those around me.
Lord Jesus, You said that You would leave Your peace with Your disciples. Help me Lord to live into the peace which You offer. Guide me according to Your goodness to learn to live in peace with my neighbors. Guide me in the way of peace to live this way despite what goes on around me. Lord, You have come to save those who turn to You. Save me Lord and guide me forever. Amen.
