Before the Lord – Day 5

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” Colossians 3:15

I start with bible reading and prayer and am certain I know God’s will for my next step. Then it seems the slightest word or action can set off the greatest storms in my life. These perplexing situations often cause me to demonstrate a reactionary lifestyle. I start questioning my position, my direction, my decisions, and change my course accordingly. However, I have a promise that “the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” I have no need to let confusion or conflict dictate my steps. I must let peace rule in my heart.

My prayer today:

Lord, help me base my actions on the peace of God and stay the course. Help my eyes not to wonder away from the Peace Speaker when trouble howls around me.
