Go after peace!

Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it! –Psalm 34:14

What causes us to lose our peace? Lots of things–running late, traffic jams, spilled coffee… That’s why it’s so important to “exercise” walking in peace every day. For example, you have to decide when to close your mouth and not be easily offended. And you have to be okay with being wrong sometimes.

You can’t just sit back and wish for peace, wish the devil would leave you alone, or wish that people would do what you want. The Bible tells us to actively pursue peace. You have to make up your mind to crave peace.

For God’s Word to bear fruit in our lives, it must be sown in a peaceful heart of someone who works for and makes peace. All believers have a responsibility to maintain a spirit of peace so God can spread His Word in and through them.

Are you looking for a breakthrough in your life, but no matter how hard you try, it’s not coming? It may be because you are not living in peace. So I urge you– crave peace, seek after it, and go for it with all your might!

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
