Live in Peace
Lord please send your Spirit.Lord please send your Spirit. I ask Him, Your Holy Spirit, into my life. Please turn this wasteland of my life into fertileness and let me produce works for Your Kingdom again.
Help me to understand, to truly know that if I act righteously and with justice I will live in peace and security. At least within the realms of my life. I know for us all to live in complete peace and security we would all have to live righteously and with justice, and that isn't happening now. Not everyone lives that way. But Lord please help me to. I want to live with peace and security in my life so help me to be righteous and just.
Help me Lord to focus on my own desire to be righteous and just, not on others. Help me to live out your Words, Your commands and Your directions on how to live. Help me to not judge others, help me to remember that I am a new creation, therefore all my old ways of doing things will not work anymore. My old ways of coping with life will ruin this new life, my old ways of coping with life are ruining this new life, and those old ways also don't work anymore. Please help me Lord to embrace this new life You have given me.
I want to live free from worriesI want to live in peacefulness and safety. I can only do this through following You Lord. Please help me to remember Your ways, give me the strength to live in righteousness and integrity. Help me to not take the easy way out by compromising what is right for what is quicker, easier or less painful. Help me to live justly. Help me to deal with everyone honestly and fairly. Help me to live my life with love. Please let love be my first reaction, my first response, Please let love be my goal and my method.
Lord we all want peace. We seek it in many ways, some of those ways are harmful to others or self-destructive. We have spent much time and effort trying to get peace in unhealthy, unproductive and sinful ways. I am asking You now to help me live according to Your Word, to help me live the right way, in decency, honorably, in fairness and virtue. Help me live in reverence to You, honestly and with integrity. Help me to have peace.
But once more God will send us his spirit. The wasteland will become fertile, and fields will produce rich crops. Everywhere in the land righteousness and justice will be done. Because everyone will do what is right, there will be peace and security forever. God's people will be free from worries, and their homes peaceful and safe." Isaiah 32:15-18 GNB
Our greatest desire is...
for people to come to know God personally. The simple truth is that there is a God who created you and loves you very much. (Genesis 1:1) He gave us life and deserves our gratitude and love.
