I am a person who likes peace. I want to have a time of peace every day when I can study the Bible and pray. I also like to keep peace among my family and friends.
But sometimes I become so busy trying to make peace that I forget to let God guide me. I try to solve people’s problems with my own ideas instead of depending upon God and His Word to help me.
In our Bible verses for today, Paul tells us how to help make peace. “Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds” (verses 6-7).
Don’t get caught up in people’s ideas and opinions about peace today. Instead, focus on God’s words. He will protect you and fill you with His peace.
