Peace – it’s important


It’s hard to stay peaceful in the world we live in today.  there’s just so much work pressure, relational issues and much more that takes away our peace.

But it’s important to practice it.  God wants us to have peace within ourselves and towards others.

Genesis 26 : 19-24 (NLT)

19 Isaac’s servants also dug in the Gerar Valley and discovered a well of fresh water. 20 But then the shepherds from Gerar came and claimed the spring. “This is our water,” they said, and they argued over it with Isaac’s herdsmen. So Isaac named the well Esek (which means “argument”). 21 Isaac’s men then dug another well, but again there was a dispute over it. So Isaac named it Sitnah (which means “hostility”). 22 Abandoning that one, Isaac moved on and dug another well. This time there was no dispute over it, so Isaac named the place Rehoboth (which means “open space”), for he said, “At last the Lord has created enough space for us to prosper in this land.”

23 From there Isaac moved to Beersheba, 24 where the Lord appeared to him on the night of his arrival. “I am the God of your father, Abraham,” he said. “Do not be afraid, for I am with you and will bless you. I will multiply your descendants, and they will become a great nation. I will do this because of my promise to Abraham, my servant.”

Isaac kept his peace, and just went to another spot to dig for a well.  Even after the second one, he just kept his peace and went to look for another spot.  Eventually God provided and gave him a well. He was then blessed with a flourishing family later on.  We shouldn’t question the “irritating” things we encounter, it could be a blessing in disguise.

Jesus also says the following:

John 14:27 (NLT)

27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

We shouldn’t worry ourselves about the things of this world, keep the peace God gave us and trust in Him.

James 3:18 (NLT)

18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

If we make an effort to sow peace in everything we encounter, we will reap the rewards.  It’s not always easy, but like any challenge, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Peace keeps our hearts open to receive the Holy spirit and to lead us.

 

In every encounter, just remind yourself that God will take you through it with His peace.

 

Have a blessed evening!
