“When you enter a home, greet the family, ‘Peace.'” ~~Jesus

When Jesus sent the 72 on a mission he was very direct in how they should act. One item was when they went into a home to great the family in peace.

Jesus brings us peace. He wants us to extend it to those we come in contact with, even strangers. Our mission, from Him, is to bring peace to all we meet.

“When you enter a home, greet the family, ‘Peace.'” ~~Jesus (Luke 10:5-6 The Message)

Where does joy come from?

We want joy in our life. We want peace.

Do we long for God? Does our heart yearn to know what God wants us to do today?

Then we will know joy and peace.

“God can not give us joy and peace apart from Himself cause there is no such thing.” -C.S. Lewis

Is my mind steadfast?

There is peace and then there is a peace that is complete, nothing lacking at all. It envelopes us, wrapping us in His gifts. I gain entrance with a mind that is focused on Him.

My trust in His direction keeps me safe and secure. No alarm system works like His love. Safe, secure, complete peace. That is His way.

May I stay focused on Him.

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to God. Connecting with Him brings peace. Why worry?

Wisdom that is pure

October 9, 2012 1 comment

There is a “real” wisdom. Not the way I usually think about it for sure. It is God’s wisdom. He created everything. He knows what is happening and why. His wisdom is completely perfect and pure.

His wisdom has an interesting characteristic to it. It shows me how to get along with everyone. I know some interesting people who are not always reasonable. God’s wisdom isn’t that way. His wisdom is very gentle. His wisdom has so many blessings attached to it. I should focus on expanding relationships with those who live right with God and produce the results that go with that kind of living.

There is some hard work that goes with getting along with each other. Producing a harvest doesn’t happen by magic. The results of treating others with dignity and honor is an amazing right standing with my heavenly Father. It will overflow.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:17-18

 

 

How can I be a blessing to others?

August 30, 2012 6 comments

We need to get back to using blessings when we greet people and leave. How powerful it is to be a blessing to others and speak a good word into their day.

Paul did this and frequently blessed others with

Grace – χάρις – meaning a gift or blessing brought to man by Jesus Christ, favor, gratitude, thanks, kindness.

Peace – εἰρήνη – meaning peace of mind; invocation of peace a common Jewish farewell, in the Hebraistic sense of the health (welfare) of an individual.

How powerful for us and those we know. May I great others with that blessing.

“So I greet you with the great words, grace and peace!” ~~Apostle Paul (Galatians 1:3 The Message) 

What will I lack?

We are asked to stand in awe of our mighty God. He is God. And there is a promise. If we do, we will lack nothing. Now this also requires that we go after Him. He is available to us but we have to go after Him. No sitting around and waiting. Jesus would go off and spend time by himself hearing and seeing what His Father was up to. Hearing and seeing what God wanted to happen.

We can also be taught how to stand in awe of Him. There are those people of God around us that have insight for us. They have prophetic words for us. They have words of wisdom for us. They see the way and can guide us

We need to tell the truth about God and His ways. Opportunities abound. The harvest of souls is ready. The worst lie is the unspoken truth about God being God, good and great. Opportunities abound!!!

Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. Psalm 34:9-14
