A Heart at Peace

April 11, 2017


.
Proverbs 14:30 AMPC … A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.

From NetBible Pro 14:30

  • A heart at peace = a tranquil spirit, a heart of healing

Colossians 3:15 AMPC … And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

Isaiah 26:3-4 AMPC … You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
4 So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].

.

Thank You Lord that as we trust in You, Your peace will rule our hearts and we will be kept in perfect peace. Help our minds and hearts be at peace bringing life and health to our bodies. Please give us hearts of healing!

.
Romans 15:13 AMPC … May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.
.

Praying a heart of healing for you Today! Filled with all joy and peace of the Lord as you trust in Him! –Rom 15:13

Peace in His Footsteps

November 5, 2015

Psalm 85:13 NKJV … Righteousness will go before Him, And shall make His footsteps our pathway.

Psalm 85:13 KJV … Righteousness shall go before Him, And shall set us in the way of His footsteps.

From NetBible Ps 85:13

  • make[07760]= set, establish, determine, fix
  • Since “deliverance” and “peace” are closely related earlier in v. 10.
    • Righteousness{Deliverance} and peace greet each other with a kiss. The psalmist personifies these abstract qualities to emphasize that God’s loyal love and faithfulness{truth} will yield deliverance and peace for his people.

    => Deliverance and peace go before preparing the pathway

Colossians 3:15 NASB … Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts …

From NetBible Col 3:15

  • rule[1018] = to direct, control, govern, determine

.

Thank You Lord Jesus that Your footsteps are our pathway. Help us keep in step allowing Your peace to “rule” and lead the way!

.

Thank You Lord Jesus that Your footsteps are our pathway. Help us follow closely behind You, that we may experience the blessing of Your deliverance and peace.

Peace in Wisdom

October 26, 2015

James 1:5 NASB … But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Thank You Lord Jesus, You have a plan for each life. Let each seek Your direction and wisdom for their lives. Let each be guided by Your peace; a peace beyond understanding. Thank You Lord that Your peace rests on decisions aligned with Your plan.

Colossians 3:15 NASB … Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts …

From NetBible Col 3:15

  • rule[1018] = to direct, control, govern, determine

Jeremiah 6:16 NASB … Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways{crossroads} and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’”

Colossians 3:15-17 AMP
15 And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].
16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.
17 And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.

May the peace of Christ rule in your heart. Now, may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in all ways. -Col3:15;2Thess3:16

In His Arms

October 18, 2014

Isaiah 40:11 NIV
11 He tends{feeds} His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.

Through the storms of life
Lead me into your light
Give my heart a new song
When I’m weak, make me strong
By Your word lead me
Into pastures of peace
Hold me close
To safely rest in Your Arms.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. -Ps 46:1 NASB

The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? -Ps 27:1 NASB

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. -Ps 119:105 NASB

He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord. -Ps 40:3

Praise You Lord Jesus, You are my light and salvation, my refuge and strength. By Your word lead me, beside still waters into pastures of peace. There, hold me close, to rest safely in Your arms.

Psalm 23 AMP
1 The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
2 He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters.
3 He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him—not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake.
4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
6 Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.

Praise You Lord Jesus, You are my Good Shepherd. Gather me into Your arms as one of Your own. Hold me still, hold me near. Close to Your word, close to Your Spirit, close to Your heart. Hold me close, let me safely rest in Your arms of love.

Remember, at ALL times, the peace of the Lord is only a prayer away!

Philippians 4:4-7 AMP
4 Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice!
5 Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon].
6 Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

2 Thessalonians 3:16 AMP
16 Now may the Lord of peace Himself grant you His peace (the peace of His kingdom) at all times and in all ways [under all circumstances and conditions, whatever comes]. The Lord [be] with you all.

Thank You Lord Jesus for Your peace that passes all understanding. Help me to remember that Your peace is available at ALL times and is only a prayer away!

Safe Harbor Blessing

July 17, 2014

Psalm 107:25-31 NLT    He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea. They rose up to the heavens, they went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end. They cried out to the Lord in their distress; He delivered them from their troubles. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. What a blessing was that stillness as he brought them safely into harbor! Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, and for His wonders to the sons of men! 

Mark 4:39  NKJV   Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

Serenity Prayer

July 4, 2014

Psalm 29:11 AMP
11 The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.

The Serenity Prayer -Reinhold Niebuhr

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

W.W. Bartley

For every ailment under the sun
There is a remedy, or there is none;
If there be one, try to find it;
If there be none, never mind it.

Friedrich Schiller

Blessed is he, who has learned to bear what he cannot change, and to give up with dignity, what he cannot save.

Dan Brown

God, grant me strength to accept those things I cannot change.

 

Thank You Lord Jesus that You give unyielding and impenetrable strength to Your people. Thank You that as I surrender those things that I can not change to You, I will be blessed with Your peace – a peace beyond my understanding.

.
Philippians 4:4-7 NKJV
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 

Thank You Lord Jesus that You have an answer to anything that I am facing. Guard my heart and mind through Christ Jesus as I seek Your wisdom. Give me the courage to follow Your lead and do those things that You show me.

.
Philippians 4:8-9 NKJV
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Beside Still Waters

June 1, 2014

Psalm 23:1-3 AMP … THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. He refreshes and restores my life (my self);

Beside still waters
From Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
He leadeth me beside the still waters – Margin, “waters of quietness.” Not stagnant waters, but waters not tempestuous and stormy; waters so calm, gentle, and still, as to suggest the idea of repose, and such as prompt to repose. As applied to the people of God, this denotes the calmness – the peace – the repose of the soul, when salvation flows as in a gently running stream; when there is no apprehension of want; when the heart is at; peace with God.
From  NetBible Ps 23:2
still waters = waters of quietness, peaceful streams, refreshing waters => refreshment from God who is the source of living waters -Jer2:13 
He[The Good Shepherd] restores: breathes refreshment and new life into my soul!

From NetBible Ps 23:3
NKJ  He restores my soul
NLT  He renews my strength
BBE  He gives new life to my soul
AMP He refreshes and restores my life (my self)

  • restores[07725] = to bring back, to restore, refresh, repair
  • soul[05315] = life, person, mind, living being
    *from [05314] = to take breath, refresh oneself
Revelation 7:17 AMP … For the Lamb Who is in the midst of the throne will be their Shepherd, and He will guide them to the springs of the waters of life{living waters}; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

From NetBible Rev 7:17
living[2198] = to live, breathe, be among the living

.

May the Good Shepherd who is also the Lamb, continue to lead you beside still waters where every tear is wiped away. There, may our Lord Jesus Christ breathe new life into your soul. Be restored TODAY!

.

May the Good Shepherd who is also the Lamb(Rev 7:17), continue to lead you beside still waters and green pastures. There, may our Lord Jesus Christ refresh and restore your soul TODAY!

.

Isaiah 48:17-18 NIV …This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. 18 If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Peace like a river flows when you follow His lead. 

May the Good Shepherd who is also the Lamb, continue to lead you beside still waters where every tear is wiped away. There, taste and SEE that the Lord is good! May you experience the peace of the Lord in a fresh new way TODAY! A peace that restores your soul.

Peace Be Still!

October 13, 2013

Psalm 89:9 AMP … You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves arise, You still them.

Psalm 107:29 AMP … He hushes the storm to a calm and to a gentle whisper, so that the waves of the sea are still.

Mark 4:39 NKJV … Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

Mark 4:39 AMP … And He arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, Hush now! Be still (muzzled)! And the wind ceased (sank to rest as if exhausted by its beating) and there was [immediately] a great calm (a perfect peacefulness).

Jesus in the midst of the storm help us to call Your name and listen for Your voice- “Peace Be Still”! Thank You Lord Jesus that at the sound of Your voice even the raging sea is hushed. Today, still our hearts to experience Your perfect peace.

When shadows fall
And thunders roar
I will run to the One I know
Jesus
He rules the raging sea
Jesus, my ever present help speaks
“Peace Be Still!”
Midst any storm.
