Psalm 85:8-9 "Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly. Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land."ESV

Let them not turn back to folly. The children of Israel were always turning back to folly, The disciples were constantly turning back to folly and we are pron to turn back to folly as well. To turn to folly is turn away from God. It's a human trait and it started in the Garden where we turned away from God and ate that fruit of knowledge of good and evil. We turned to folly and when we did we lost our peace. We've been seeking it ever since, problem is we are usually seeking it in the wrong place, thing or person. Peace can only be found in Jesus.

John 14:27 :"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid."ESV

Peace not as the world gives. When the world gives peace it only lasts for a short time because of sin and the lack of power this world has. The peace of Jesus is ever lasting, He has the power to sustain it within us and He has paid the price for sin thus He has conquered sin and it's consequences. The peace of Jesus is an inward calming peace and that is what we all need.

Romans 8:6 "For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace."ESV

To set your mind on the Spirit. To be seeking and listening for the Holy Spirit to guide you and reveal to you the things of God. Because it is God who grants us life and peace through Jesus. How do we set our minds on Him? Through prayer and His word. Through that which is a heart that wants to hear Him. Knock and He will open, seek and you shall find and ask and it will be given to you. That's the promise Jesus gave us about prayer.

1 Thessalonians 1:4-8 "For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything."ESV

Joy of the Holy Spirit is the same as saying the Joy of the Lord. In this time we are being watched more than ever and the Holy Spirit is wanting us to let Him speak through us in word and in actions. So what's the message your sending, all is lost or are you showing the Joy of the Lord in your life. Read the very last part again; "your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything".

Proverbs 3:17 "Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace."ESV

This starts with He who finds wisdom. We know that true wisdom only comes from God thus he who receives the wisdom of God has found the paths of peace. Why plural, because there are many difficulties out there that we encounter. James tells us if we lack wisdom ask for it. Why because, through God's wisdom we find peace.

Psalm 29:10-11 "The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!"ESV

Peace in your life is a blessing from God. It is not from this world nor from the things in it. Every good and perfect gift is from God and peace in this world is one of those.

Psalm 34:11-14 "Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it."ESV

Seek peace and pursue it. We are seeking and pursuing a lot of things. Health, entertainment, education, jobs, positions in our jobs, notoriety and other things not mentioned. But are we truly seeking peace, thus are we seeking the author and finisher of peace. Nobody but Jesus, what are seeking today.
