Let Peace Rule

In Colossians chapter 3 Paul wrote:

15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Paul admonishes us to let the peace of FATHER rule in our hearts.  This infers that we will have challenges set before us where peace can be taken from us if we allow it.  We can be on a certain path and adversity will present itself but we must trust in FATHER to guide us through such times and know that HE will successfully take us through to the other side.  We must not let anxiety overtake our peace.  As we hear FATHER to a greater degree, our peace will endure for we know HIS Love is greater than any obstacle set before us.

In Romans chapter 8 Paul also wrote:

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

You must have this confidence that FATHER foreknew you and ordained you to be born at this time to the earthly parents HE designated at the place HE determined.  HE is not unaware of your or my circumstances and we should expect HIS Love to be our guiding light as we navigate the challenges set before us.  We should pray and expect HIM to respond to our call for guidance.  HE is ready and willing to respond to those who are called and aligned to HIM according to HIS purpose.

When you realize HE is leading you by HIS SPIRIT you will become grateful and thankful.  You will look forward to HIS Word dwelling in you and being expressed outward to teach and admonish others by HIS grace.  Whatever you do whether it be in your words or your actions, do it to exalt Christ which is always by Love.  Give FATHER the glory and honor for your successes for it is HIM who provide the gifts and calling for those achievements.

There will be those who attempt to manipulate you and exploit you in some manner for their own glory and agendas.  FATHER will show you their devices so that you will steer clear of them and not be caught up in their snares.  HIS wisdom will prevail and expose such devices.  As you deal with those situations HIS peace will rule and prevail.
