Pursue peace with all men and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14 God wants us to be rich in holiness. He wants us to cry out to Him for His justice and righteousness and nearness. He wants us to long for Him more than we long for anything else. He wants us to move away from sin and draw closer to Him. He knows how destructive sin is. He wants you to keep close to Him. He alone can give you the grace and power to overcome sin and temptation. Walk close to God, read His word and obey His commands. He will lead you in the path of righteousness and holiness.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You. Isaiah 26:3 The secret to having a steadfast heart is found in Psalm 112:7, “His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” We find our strength, our confidence when we place our total trust in the Lord, yielding to His will. When we do that, we are not manipulated by circumstances or swayed by situations. Though the storms of life rage around us, our trust remains in Him who calms the storm. Place your trust in Jesus and feel the peace that flows from a steadfast heart.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
