“Great Peace…”

peace keeps you from stumbling

by Dona Hake

Psalm 119:165 (HCSB)

“Abundant peace belongs to those

who love Your instruction;

nothing makes them stumble.”

It is one thing to possess peace that permeates your heart and mind, but abundant peace or great peace is what our awesome God promises as we love His Word.  Did you ever notice how if you are agitated, feeling a bit empty and someone does something offensive it is almost immediately makes you snap back and get offended.  How precious are those times where you feel saturated in His peace because you are saturated in His Word, and you feel unmovable.  It is when we are in that place of His refuge that we will simply be unmovable.  Paul spoke of the peace that passes all understanding.  That peace will keep and guard your mind and that peace will also surpass your understanding.  It is His peace that will make us scratch our heads in wonder how we got through something and did not move off of the Rock that keeps us standing.

Let us strive to live in His abundant peace that we may abide in His place of refuge.  Have a wonderful day and God bless you!
