When is the last time you were at PEACE?
You will know that your home is safe. When you survey your possessions, nothing will be missing. – Job 5:24 NLT
One day Jesse said to David, “Take this basket of roasted grain and these ten loaves of bread and carry them quickly to your brothers. And give these ten cuts of cheese to their captain. See how your brothers are getting along, and bring back a report on how they are doing.” – 1 Samuel 17:17-18 NLT
If someone steals an ox or a donkey or a sheep and it is found in the thief’s possession, then the thief must pay double the value of the stolen animal. – Exodus 22:4 NLT
TRUE PEACE REQUIRES TAKING WHAT’S AND RESTORING IT TO
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6 NLT
and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross. – Colossians 1:20 NLT
Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. – Romans 5:1 NLT
“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 NLT
So then, we must always aim at those things that bring peace and that help strengthen one another. – Romans 14:19 GNT
