Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

With prayer and fasting they commended them to the LORD in whom they had come to believe. Acts 14:23b

 

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

 

Acts 14:19-28, Psalm 145 & John 14:27-31

 

Our passage in Acts today describes Paul being stoned and dragged out of the city where the Disciples think he is dead but he gets up and goes with them back into the city. In the Free Will of God’s Divine Plan for Paul, he learns to offer up prayer and fasting to not only teach the Good News but to overcome mistake, hardships and confusion. Paul realized that “it is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.”

 

We all make mistakes we are trying to overcome as we grow in age and wisdom where we experience things that we ultimately regret. These can range from the smallest of mistakes to the largest of sins where we let on ego get in the way and forget to put God first. By trusting in Christ’s own words of peace, we can learn to overcome even the least bit of fright or troubles learning as we grow to replace anger with reconciliation.

 

Take my mistake last week of being frustrated with a piece of lawn equipment. As I finished some lawn work, I pulled out my leaf blower and tried to crank it up. It wouldn’t start for nothing. Instead of just putting it down, I let anger get in my way and pulled it countless times in about a five-minute span. My anger caused me to tear a muscle in my right forearm causing seven days later a trip to the Emergency Room after two sleepless nights of sever aching pain to be relieved. As my arm continues to throb today and pain meds made me sleep in a state of recovery past my normal writing times, I encourage you all to learn from the mistake of anger and let Christ’s Peace control your world. Amen.

 

Dear LORD, we pray to replace our anger with Your Son’s Peace and healing. We pray for my children. I pray a prayer of thanksgiving for Father Paul’s genuine concern and friendship. I pray a prayer of help LORD to allow me fast healing in my arm. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

The Command of Peace I follow as the Father’s Sapling- John 14:27-31

 

He spoke often to His courageous men

Disciples of love who can’t pretend

Leaving His Peace from anger to always defend

Hearts plagued and troubled minds that offend

 

Rejoice in your love for Me

For I’m going to Father to see

The Advocate of Truth to Eternally Be

Humanity’s Redemption of sin to be free

 

Now you know ahead of time what will happen

When it sows you’ll remember the slapping

Of my Truth against your soul eternally mapping

The Command of Peace I follow as the Father’s Sapling
