What Will You Seek and Pursue?

Psalm 34:14: “Seek peace and pursue it.”

I stared at my list of items to complete today. “Oh dear God, the list exceeds the hours in my day.” Do you feel that way sometimes?

After a deep breath, I prayed. “Heavenly Father God, please multiply my time and help me to seek peace and pursue it.”

After praying, my next step to seek peace and pursue it was to go to You Tube and select relaxing Christian music on the harp or piano. What steps do you take to seek peace and pursue it?

I couldn’t write the weekly devotional without a calm heart and a quiet spirit. I thank God for his Word, the Bible, with all its precious promises and wise commands.
God would never tell you and me to do something if he didn’t intend to make it possible. That means it is possible to seek peace and pursue it. Furthermore, it is possible to find peace.

Other Bible verses confirm the possibility of having peace on earth. Psalm 29:11 says, “The LORD blesses his people with peace.” Now there’s a blessing I don’t want to miss. How about you?

Ephesians 2:14 says, “For he [Jesus Christ] himself is our peace.” If Jesus Christ is your personal Lord and Savior, he is your peace. Seek him and pursue him.
You have nothing to lose and peace to gain.

Dear God, I need peace in my life right now. Amen.
