Read Galatians 5:22-23 and Isaiah 26:3
What common misunderstanding do we make when it comes to God’s peace?
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 4:6–7 (NKJV)
Holy Father, thank You for committing to making us holy! Even though we are so broken, You saved us through Your son Jesus. That makes us holy just by His sacrifice, but You didn’t stop there. You commit to transforming our hearts more and more every day. I ask that You continue to make me more peaceful as I try to live in Your peace and share it with others. Help me to practice peace in the community You have given me as a way to honor You and love my neighbors. Amen.
Practice peace today! Whether it be sharing words of encouragement with another person or doing an act of service despite your tiredness, ask God to show you something you can do today to practice peace.
