God's Peace


"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you" (Isa.23:3).

Have you heard or read some of the "Come-ons" that are offered when someone is trying get you to purchase their product. Car dealers offer interest-free deals, while banks also offer incentives get you to use them. When we reconcile with God, there are wonderful peace incentives just waiting for us... Today's verse talks about a perfect peace to those who's minds are on him because he now trusts in us. Have you ever sat on the banks of a river and watch it slowly meander it's way downstream? Have you observed the steadiness of breaking oceans waves? "If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea" (Isa.48:18). God wants to offer us this kind of peace to those who heed his commandments, and is willing to fill us with it. "May the God hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Rom.15:13). Here the apostle Paul enjoins this peace with an abundant hope. Lastly, the Lord wants this peace to be a constant in our lives, that it would be with us always and in every way. "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way" (2 Thess.3:16). What the Lord offers us is interest-free and laden with incentives. It is given to us when we are willing to become his disciples. God's peace....

Have a wonderful day... Do good... Give God the credit... Love mark Phil.4:11
