Receiving Peace

Ironically, I’m posting an article about peace, all the while rushing to get ready for my Monday morning activities. Perhaps this is why this particular devotional caught my attention the way it did.

Today is Ladies Bible Class then off to Mom’s for our bi-weekly Scrabble fix. The devotional is from Jesus Calling Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young.

I hope all of you have a great week and take time to Receive His Peace.

Receive My Peace. It is My continual gift to you. The best way to receive this gift is to sit quietly in My Presence, trusting Me in every area of your life. Quietness and trust accomplish far more than you can imagine: not only in you, but also on earth and in heaven. When you trust me in a given area, you release that problem or person into My care.

Spending time alone with Me can be a difficult discipline, because it goes against the activity addiction of this age. You may appear to be doing nothing, but actually you are participating in battles going on within spiritual realms. You are waging war – not with weapons of the world, but with heavenly weapons, which have divine power to demolish strongholds. Living close to Me is a sure defense against evil.

JOHN 14:27; ISAIAH 30:15;2 CORINTHIANS 10:4

    I really like the meditations in that book … they speak to my heart in an amazingly relevant way. As if the author knows what is going on in my spirit from day to day.

    Me too Greg, I love that about the book, it seems so very personal.
