“For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” – Psalm 122:8
The world has enough problems without us adding to them by engaging in bitter quarrels and harboring hurts against others. To enjoy life fully, it is essential that you live in peace with your fellow man – but you can only do that if you have peace within yourself.
During His earthly ministry, Jesus had to handle a tremendous amount of adversity and enmity. He endured mockery, hatred, humiliation, unfair criticism and rejection. But, He never allowed circumstances to get the better of Him.
This was only possible because He was at peace with God, with Himself, and with all people. Accept it and express it through your life and you will experience a life of harmony and peace.
Savior, because I found You, my life is filled with an indescribable peace. Amen.
