Lord, Forgive Me for the Times I Don’t Walk in Peace—Jeremiah 33:9


Today’s Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 32:1-33:26, Ezekiel 26:1-14

Heavenly Father, when I read this scripture so many thoughts run through my head: Our country, the importance of living a life  of peace as it relates to causing people to know You, the awesome power of peace, and Your definition of prosperity versus the world’s definition.

Then this city will bring me joy, glory, and honor before all the nations of the earth! The people of the world will see all the good I do for my people, and they will tremble with awe at the peace and prosperity I provide for them. —Jeremiah 33:9

Jesus, I know there won’t be peace in this world until You come back but Lord You do promise us peace in our hearts and minds as Your children.

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. —John 14:27

Lord, true prosperity is much more than wealth, property, and stuff. I wonder if Jeremiah and the Jews of his day realized economic prosperity was dependent of the prosperity of their soul. 

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth —3 John 1:2 (KJV)

Lord, this kind of peace is what causes the lost world to want to know You.

Lord, forgive me for the times I don’t walk in peace. I’m sorry I sometimes allow the cares of this world overwhelm me.

Today’s a new day! I refuse to live a life that is less than Your best for me!

In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
