Need Some Peace?
When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Prov 16:7. Even his enemies. So in other words God makes everything in your life peace, all the small stuff, even the big stuff like your enemies. Wow so that kinda sounds like Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Or maybe Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Maybe if He keeps on talking about us having PEACE over and over again, God really means it. Or maybe he's trying to get it through our thick skull. Peace doesn't just happen because you say you are a Christian. Each of these Scriptures is surrounded by THINGS YOU MUST DO if you want the peace. Your ways must be pleasing to the Lord in Prov 16, Phil 4 is about what you think or focus on, Rom 14 is about how you treat others. If you don't do the Spiritual work, you don't get the PEACE. Peace is a reward for work. Don't expect peace if you don't put in the work. What kind of work? The Four Legs. What are the four legs? See the link below...
