John Lennon famously wrote “Imagine all the people living in peace, you may say I am a dreamer but I am not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will live as one”.
The bible gives us guidelines called the Fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5. The Gifts are peace, love, joy, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control. If all of these gifts are visible in everybody’s life the opening vision could become a reality.
You know so many people spend a lifetime searching for peace, they chase idles dreams, addictions & religions hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within.
How often do you examine your own life? I searched my heart and asked God to reveal things that I am not at peace with. Often we carry so much baggage, unwanted guilt, worry, insecurities and the list goes on. Like I did why don’t you try and deal with some issues in order that you can be a bigger person and live in peace.
When things are going well I am at peace and things are rosy but when things get tough its then we need to pray for peace in situations and that God will be in the midst of dilemmas so that we don’t have to worry as we are at peace with God, with that kind of faith nothing is impossible in Gods eyes and life should be okay.
I pray that God would touch you today with a sense of his holy spirit, release peace into your life and that in the coming days you will be more happier person inside if your not at present. Peace be with you today friends.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
