What an appropriate word for me today. I feel unsettled today. Guess why this one is next in line. God's timing is always perfect.
I have done a little housekeeping this morning and some hand piecing on a quilt all while listening to my MP3 player full of praise and worship songs. For any of you who would love an IPOD but can't afford it, this small MP3 player was about $40 at Wal-mart and works great. It works like an IPOD without all the bells and whistles.
Ok here is my study for today.
Num 25:12 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace.
Covenant means divine ordinance. That is pretty powerful.
Is 54:10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
Here it shows some of what is required of us to have peace.
Lev 26:3 If ye walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them;
Lev 26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
Is 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.
This is why I have been filling my thoughts with praise and worship music today.
2 Thess 3:16 Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
It was prophesied that Jesus would give us peace.
Is 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Our peace comes through our faith in Jesus and His work on the cross.
Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Eph 2:14 For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us.
Col 1:20 And having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things on earth, or things in heaven.
Is 32:18 And My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
This is what I am standing on today:
Jn 14:27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you, Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
