Colossians 3:1-15

Scripture: from verse 15

let the shalom (peace) which comes from the Messiah be your heart’s decision-maker

Observation:  Following God’s way brings peace.  When we allow God to do the worrying for us, and we tell Him about our problems instead of allowing them to overwhelm us, He gives us peace that passes understanding (Phil 4:6-7).  Therefore, if we aren’t at peace, something is wrong.

The something can be a lot of things, of course.  God has a lot of work to do in us, rooting out old guilt and anger and debt and fear.  And it takes time.  But even with all that, we can move towards what gives us peace.  We can learn to look for God’s peace in our hearts and recognize it and follow it.

Application:  Learn to notice God’s peace.

Prayer:  Yeshua, thank you for giving us peace (John 14:27).  Help me to follow your peace and not be anxious about things I can’t control.  Help me to allow you to handle what I can’t.  Amen.

  1. Dear Caitlyn – I have enjoyed your blog very much and wanted to thank you for showing me a way to talk with God.  It is simple, really, and I was making it far too complicated.  It’s often fun to talk with Him and He always brings more clarity.  Hope all is well with you,  Much love, Amma
