Peace in Hebrew is 'shalom'. Another connotation of this word is wholeness.
I rarely feel the wholeness part. I regularly say 'yes' with my mouth that God's grace and peace is enough - but my life often says 'no' by not recognizing the God moments. I see what needs to be done - laundry, dishes, cooking, an endless to do list. I am not really seeing God in the smiles of my children or the little gifts that God brings when you are paying attention to them.
A heart divided cannot stand.
Every moment is either a 'yes' or a 'no' to God. I need to say 'yes' to God. I need to say 'no' to the enemy.
What is peace? Peace is often affiliated with light. Does it mean the absence of darkness? Peace is the assurance of God's presence in the dark.
Peace is a person, not a place.
Are you looking for peace?
In Christ, you are rescued, not wrecked.
In Christ, you are new, not a mess.
In Christ, you are lavished in love, not a loser.
Say yes to Jesus.
It is possible to move and expand the circles of obedience and surrender -reaching into the world for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Say yes and see HIM.
