Davidisms: Seek God's Peace Within
In seeking God’s will, peace is the key.
What should you do when you have a huge decision before you? Especially one in which you don’t know what to do?
First: Pray. Ask Jesus for his wisdom.
Second: Lay it before the Lord. Tell him you are willing to do whatever he asks.
Third: Talk to trusted, Godly friends and seek their counsel. There is wisdom in a multitude of counselors (Proverbs 15:22).
But above all - seek God’s peace within. If you aren’t experiencing God’s peace, don’t do it! Marilynn and I have never made a decision unless we have God’s peace within. His peace indicates his will.
And God’s peace doesn’t mean that circumstances surrounding you aren’t still out of control. They may well be.
But you know that God is always in control. And he will give you his peace - that which surpasses all understanding - to guard and guide your mind in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6).
And there will be an infinite peace within you no matter what your circumstances may be.
One more time: If you don’t have God’s peace, don’t do it!
