Searching for PEACE
In this world of turmoil, the one thing that most people would like to have is PEACE. World Peace is a broad and most often difficult thing to find, but inner peace is for the having.
What exactly is meant by this simple statement…of “having peace”?
The Holy Scriptures tells us in the book of Philippians the components of PEACE:
“…WHATEVER IS TRUE,
WHATEVER IS JUST
WHATEVER IS PURE
WHATEVER IS PLEASING
WHATEVER IS COMMENDABLE….
IF THERE IS ANYTHING WORTHY OF PRAISE….THINK ON THESE THINGS...and THE GOD OF PEACE WILL BE WITH YOU.
It is easy to think on the negative. Yet, none of these highlighted words are negative. They are pleasant and peaceful. If you say them out loud and listen to them carefully, there is no more beautiful sound than…. TRUE, JUST, PURE, PLEASING COMMENDABLE, PRAISE.
Whatever is in your life that is “worthy of praise” hang onto it…think about it…encourage it in your thoughts. As you do so, PEACE will move into your heart and mind. Give all things to God. He is bigger than you. He knows the beginning from the end. He is the God of perfect peace.
