Peace Overflowing (Noon)
Isaiah 48:18 Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
Samuel was standing behind his cart with a gloomy face. Since morning, he had been selling hotdog but he only managed to sell 3. He felt so tired. Since the pandemic hit the world, he barely met the need of his family from his selling. Previously, his hotdogs were always sold out, so he could earn enough money to feed his family and pay his children’s school fees. But now, life seemed full of worries.
We cannot rely on anything in this world but God. No one can guarantee the continuation of a thing. A close relationship, for example, can be broken. Some also lose a job or even go bankrupt. What we thought was so solid could collapse due to unforeseen reasons. For example, natural disasters, accidents, or virus attacks like what we are experiencing today. So many people lose peace in their hearts because it feels so uncertain and unpredictable.
Therefore, it is no coincidence that the Word of God this month will bring great blessings to all of us. In our Rhema verse today, God states what He wants to do, to give us peace like an overflowing river every day, every moment, continuously. Our peace will never dry out. God also wants to send happiness and joy that continues to abound like the waves of the sea. Not a temporary peace, but the peace and joy from God that will continue to flow consistently in our lives. When we are faithful and take heed of His commandments, we will get the peace that surpasses all understanding.
The PEACE of God will CONTINUE to FLOW consistently in our life.
1. What peace can the world give you?
2. What kind of peace does God want you to have? Can you feel the difference?
3. What must you do so that you can enter and experience the fulfillment of the Covenant of Peace?
“Father, thank you for all Your goodness in our life. We receive Your abundant peace and anoint us in doing our part in the Covenant of Peace. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
