Please the Lord and be at peace with your enemies
When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Proverbs 16:7 KJV
Are you at war with those who continuously persecute you? Are you struggling to find peace? Are you battling daily with those who hate you and say all manner of evil against you?
Today I want to assure you that you can be at peace with those who are raging war against you (Your enemies). Hear the words of the wise one when the WAYS of people PLEASE the Lord, he causes even their enemies to be at PEACE with them.
Have you ever wondered sometimes why so many people attacking you all at once? Usually our first response is that it is a test from God and we will battle our way through.
However, it is not always a test from God, often times it is our own choices that causes us to be in battles. Battles that God didn’t meant for us to be in, but because of our own lust and fleshly desires, our enemies range war against us. Think of a time when you purposefully displayed ways that are displeasing to God DID ANYTHING GOOD COME AFTER THAT?
Have you ever had a period of oneness with God, and during that period, everything and everyone is nice to you? THINK ABOUT IT!
Why would that happen, why would those who once persecuted you and lie on you, be nice to you? That is because you are in good standing with God Your ways are pleasing to him and so he causes even your enemies to be at peace with you!
As I reflected on the passage, I thought about my own Christian journey. The more I please God , is the more peace I experience. At work, at home, at school and on the street. I have less encounters with individuals and I am better able to walk away from certain arguments.
Being in right standing with God, allows you to enjoy a better and more fulfilling lifestyle I can testify.
Untill next week , Make it your daily goal to PLEASE THE LORD, and you will be surprised at the results.
EVEN YOUR ENEMIES WILL BE AT PEACE WITH YOU
TRY IT! IT WORKS!
