Peace Is God's Will

Don't let anyone or anything rob you of peace. God's will is for you to live in peace. That peace comes to you through the Prince of peace. His name is Jesus. Peace is evidence that the Spirit of Christ is at work in you. "Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us" (Romans 5:1, NLT).

Peace will lead you in God's will. There are two sure ways to know God's will for your life. First, read the Bible. It explains God's will. Second, let the peace of God confirm God's will. "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts" (Colossians 3:15, NLT). Christ is every believer's Shepherd, leading you in the right path.

Pray the Word: Father, lead me along the right path for my life. Let your peace be my guide, through the Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Do the Word: When peace is not your companion, pray that God will show you where you went astray. Be conscious of the presence of God's peace in your heart. Let him lead you day by day, with his peace as your sure guide.
