DEVOTIONAL: The Blessing of Peace

“The LORD will give strength to His people; The LORD will bless His people with peace.”  –Psalms 29:11

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”   –Matthew 5:4  What is the blessing of PEACE?  It is the freedom from disturbance; tranquility. With so many distractions around us today…COVID-19, death, sickness, wondering, shot or no shot…we all need a time of peace in our lives. We need to have an understanding to agree to disagree in our relationships and lives. God said “BE STILL,” (Psalm 46:10) and in that stillness we find peace.

Pray the blessing of peace as you go about your day, today, tomorrow, and every day.PRACTICE: Seek out someone today and encourage and lift them up. Do it while you still can!When peace like a river attendeth my way,When sorrows like sea billows roll;Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,It is well, it is well with my soul.

-Horatio Spafford
