“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”
As children of God we are set to a higher standard; not because of who we are, but rather Whose we are.
We are bought with a price.
God gave His only begotten Son to shed His precious blood for our sins.
Paul wrote to the people of Colosse under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and admonished them how to live as unto the Lord.
“Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.”
These same attributes should be seen in our lives as the Lord’s children.
Merciful. Kind. Humble. Meek. Longsuffering.
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
When we come to God in prayer with our needs with thankful hearts as we ask for His help, we are promised to have peace which passeth all understanding.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Let His peace rule within your heart today.
Chaos and confusion abound all around us, but through it all we can endure it peacefully because of Him.
“Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
Jeremiah 45-46 | Psalm 53-55
