It is said, the greatest need in our world today is peace. No matter what is going on in your life, the Lord promises that you can have peace. No matter whatâ€™s happening in your finances, in your relationships, or at work; nothing in this world can take His peace from you. Our part is to listen to what God tells us to do.
You may be thinking to yourself, â€œGod doesnâ€™t speak to me.â€ But once you receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you become His. The Bible says that you are His sheep, and you can hear His voice, and the voice of a stranger you will not follow. The Lord speaks in many ways. First of all, He speaks through the Word of God. But sometimes, He speaks through the encouragement of a friend, or through a song, or in the beauty of nature. Sometimes itâ€™s a simple â€œknowingâ€ deep down on the inside of you in your spirit.
Today, if you arenâ€™t sure how God speaks to you, ask Him to send His Spirit to show you and to train you to listen. Open your heart today by faith so you can hear His voice. As you take time to be still and read Godâ€™s Word and listen, He will speak. He will reveal Himself to you and give you peace. Receive it!
â€œI will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people… (Psalm 85:8, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for Your promise of peace. Father, I open my heart to You and ask that You teach me to hear Your voice clearly. God, I have decided that I will listen, I will obey, and I will walk in Your ways, so when You speak I will know itâ€™s You, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
