The Fruit of Righteousness is Peace

Isaiah 32 17

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 32:17

The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.

 

God’s presence in our lives changes everything.  When we submit to God’s will, He gives us a calmness and inner peace that nothing on the outside can take away.  We’ll have a quiet confidence that no matter what happens we know God is in control and we know that God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

God Will Fight for You

1 peter 2 23

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 2:23

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

 

It’s in our nature to protect ourselves when we are being attacked whether it’s insults, criticism, or lies. We want to fight back and retaliate with more of the same, we want to defend ourselves with our own arguments.  But when Jesus was being insulted and suffering He did not retaliate.  He put his trust in His Heavenly Father and let God’s will be done.  Put your trust in God and let Him be your defender, He will fight for you and He will judge your enemies accordingly.

God’s Will Not Mine

Matthew 26 39.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 26:39

And going a little farther, He fell on His face and prayed, saying, my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless; not as I will, but as you will.

 

Jesus gave us the example of how to pray when going through something difficult. He prayed to God saying, if it’s possible let this difficult situation pass from me but let it be what you want, not what I want. God knows everything from the beginning to the end we just need to trust Him and pray for His will to be done in our lives.

A Teachable Spirit

Psalm 143 10

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:10

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.  May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.

God loves us so much that He gave us commands to obey that lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction.  Having a teachable spirit will put us in a position to be led by God.

Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks!

1 Thessalonians 5 16-18

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.

 

We don’t always need to change our circumstances sometimes we just need to change the way we see them.   No matter what you are going through keep rejoicing in the Lord, keep praying and keep giving thanks to God.  Don’t give up on God because He won’t give up on you.

Pray God’s Will Be Done  

Matthew 6 10 (2).jpg

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:10

your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
 

If you don’t know how or what to pray, pray for God’s will to be done in your life. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud or eloquent prayers.  Prayer doesn’t have to be full of big, fancy words it just has to be from your heart.  Have a sincere conversation with God and pray knowing and believing that He hears you.
