Can we count on you to introduce peace to a situation or personal interaction? Are others at ease after having an encounter with you? This decade has initiated complex challenges, especially to our spiritual and emotional state, and those of our family and friends. Most of us would appreciate a moment of peace during these chaotic and uncertain times. As we look to the future, an ongoing test will be our ability to promote and maintain a peaceful life.
If possible, to the best of your ability,
live at peace with all people.
– Romans 12:18 (Common English Bible)
Making peace with others requires a discipline of emotions, a regulation of the tongue, and a heart to forgive. Making peace with unexpected circumstances requires a shift in focus, innovations for change, and strong faith. You can be free from anything that attempts to steal your peace: fear, anxiety, anger, frustration or past regrets. Peace provides a freedom from negativity, oppression, stress and conflict. It is so vital for your victorious living and personal well-being.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
– Matthew 5:9 (New International Version)
Blessed [spiritually calm with life-joy in God’s favor]
are the makers and maintainers of peace,
for they will [express His character and]
be called the sons of God.
– Matthew 5:9 (Amplified Bible)
You may ask…”Do I have the power to make and maintain peace?” Yes! You can have peace not only with others, but peace within yourself. There is One who can show you how. Now is a perfect time to make acquaintance with Jesus, the Prince of Peace. There is no need for social distancing with Him. He wants to be close with you to provide shelter against life disturbances. He desires to restore and promote you to a new level of joy. The more time you spend with Him, the more love and power will increase in your life. Friend, access the power of peace today!
