Reflection Questions: What power does peace have in my life? Do I rob peace of its power by insisting that it submit to my “common sense”? What could be more secure than being at peace with a loving God?
I am still asking question. Where am placing my peace? Where/what is my peace based upon? How do I abide in God’s peace? His perfect peace, his peace that surpasses all understanding .
10 for whoever has entered God’s rest has alsourested from his works as God did from his.
Jesus the Great High Priest
14 Since then we have da great high priestewho has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, flet us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest gwho is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been dtempted as we are, hyet without sin. 16 iLet us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord .”
Joshua 24:15 NIV
