I believe that peace is one of the most important benefits and greatest blessings God has given us. However, in the busyness of rushing around, we often feel anything but peaceful. But it doesn’t need to be that way.
Luke 1:79 says that one of the things God sent Jesus to do is to guide us “into the way of peace.” As believers we have the wonderful privilege of walking in God’s supernatural peace, regardless of how busy we may be or what is going on around us.
I lived the first forty years of my life without the blessing of peace – I was miserable. I finally came to a point of being so hungry for peace that I was willing to work with God to make whatever changes were necessary in order to have it. Thankfully, I now enjoy a life of peace that often passes understanding. I am able to walk in the path of peace during the storms of life, not just when storms don’t exist.
Have you made pursuing peace a priority? God wants you to. Follow the Holy Spirit into the peace that is rightfully yours in Christ.
Prayer Starter: God, thank You for sending Jesus to ‘direct and guide’ my feet into Your peace. I receive Your great blessing of peace for my life.
Memory Verse: To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace.” (Luke 1:79 NKJV)
