Manna For Today: Saturday, October 29, 2016
While we have peace, according to John 14:27 [Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid], we must appropriate it daily to benefit from it. Consider the following scriptures and allow them to reinforce your sense of peace every day of your life no matter what you’re experiencing.
1. My heart is open and welcomes Christ’s peace. I hear and respond to His call to peace with great gratitude.
Colossians 3:15 – And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
2. His Spirit within me produces the fruit of peace daily!
Galatians 5:22 – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…
3. I pursue peace in every detail of my life.
I Peter 3:11 – Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.
4. I exchange anxiety for His care and peace.
I Peter 5:7 – …casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Peace and blessings!
