Never Thirst

But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
John 4:14 KJV


Let Peace Rule

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Colossians 3:15 KJV

What struck me most profoundly about this verse that I have read and quoted many times over the years is the first two words “and let”. In other words allow peace to rule. I can also say “choose” to have peace.

This is powerful because so many times in many of our situations you feel as if you have no choice, you have no control over what is happening you. That you have no control over how you feel about situations, and yet this verse says “and let peace rule”. So you may have to do is I did on today and pray the scripture. You may have to say to God “Lord I trust you 100% in this situation. I trust you to be in control. I trust you to take care of things, to take care of me. And because I trust you I am going to rest in your promise that you will take care of me. And as I rest in this promise Lord I accept your peace. And as I went throughout the day whenever I began to focus on the negative in the situation, I would say Lord I trust you 100% to take care of me in this situation and I choose your peace. Throughout the day I would say Lord I choose your peace. I choose your peace over worry, over anxiety, over my inability. I choose your peace, that peace that passes all understanding.
