Day 33 - Go in Peace

Today, I really have no words of wisdom.

I will simply say this...

Peace is a gift from God. We either accept it or we don't.  If we choose to carry our burdens, allowing them to weigh us down, causing us to worry, we will not experience peace through Him.  Peace comes with Faith.  God is the only one we can really and truly depend on.  We may not like the way he always works (too slow, not our answer), but he is faithful in taking care of us.  If we don't have faith in him, we will have no peace.  We can allow Satan to control our feelings and our situation, or we can turn to God.

I came home from work with no peace about a situation.  One of my students was in the middle of domestic dispute the night before.  Weapons were involved. The local authorities allowed the children to stay in the house.  I came home full of worry that the child would experience something worse.  I had to hand it over to God.  The situation was totally out of my hands.  The authorities had been involved and made their decision (not the one I would have made especially with children involved).  I had to hand over my worry.

The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make is face shine upon you,
     And be gracious to you.
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
     And give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26

I will both lie down in peace and sleep,
For you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
Psalm 4:8

Great peace have those who love your law,
And nothing causes them to stumble.
Psalm 119:165

I will lift up my eyes to the hills -
From whence comes my help?
My help comes form the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
Psalm 121


  1. Sometimes all we can do is pray and trust. Giving it to God is always the best we can do

  2. Again, a fantastic study and this one left me speechless.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope in some way I have blessed you. I look forward to reading your comment. I may not always get the chance to respond, but I do read every comment.
