Fruit of the Spirit: Peace


 

I have to write about peace for this Friday’s fruit because that’s what I am feeling now. Beautiful peace. Shalom, shalom. I had two huge things going on–one with my health and another with business–things that would normally make me fret. But I have been praying and asked others to pray for me and I feel perfect peace just waiting on God to provide.

” Thou wilt keep him (her) in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he (she) trusteth in thee. Trust in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord GOD is everlasting strength”
Isaiah 26:3-4

The word shalom derives from the root shin-lamedh-mem, which has cognates in many Semitic languages, and means completeness, fulfillment, well-being, harmony–a concept usually encapsulated by translation in the word well-being. (Wikipedia) This sheds new light on “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

God says those who wait on Him will be blessed. (Isaiah 30:18) Praying for His will and listening for an answer is always the wisest action we can take. That’s how God’s Spirit leads us–gently. We don’t determine our course by human reasoning or by appearances in the world. There are things in the spiritual word we don’t know—God is taking care of of all of it. Our job is to follow God. He is the one who instructs us in the way which we should go. (Psalm 32:8)

When we give it to God and wait to hear from Him, we are keeping with His plan. When we follow God’s timetable, He blesses us by giving us the peace and strength to deal with difficult circumstances (and sometimes difficult people) . Peace comes when we can grasp that God knows everything and all the outcomes of every situation. We must give our worries to Him, moment by moment, and then we experience His Peace.

Simply trust. God will lead; peace will always come with our obeying His will. Keep following His lead. He never fails.

  1. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d
    like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you
    might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website
    and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  2. From the experiment, it was really apparent that attaching powerful, strong photos will get you far more likes for your post vs posting a easy status update.
    That implies a lot more exposure to your Facebook Web
    page and more likelihood of obtaining absolutely free “Likes.” facebook likes

    of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.
