And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.
Embracing God’s plan for your life produces peace. Peace in essence is defined as being in harmony with the will of God. Peace is not the absence of conflict, instead it is the striving to be one, reconciled, with the intended purpose and plan of God for your life. When God created humankind, He blew into them His Spirit and only then did humankind become alive; alive to His promise of flourishing, being fruitful and multiplying in life. God, Himself, is a Spirit and those who worship Him, believe in Him and His Lordship over all life, must worship Him in Spirit and truth. The Spirit is like a wind with no boundaries and thus, unrestrained. As we flow and operate in the Spirit, we are available to new opportunities and possibilities that allow us to live, be alive in the purpose and plan of God for our lives despite life’s challenges. The challenges of life are a part of the process of arriving at our place of flourishing in our life and life more abundantly. The conflicts of life have not come to hurt or harm us but prosper us, press out of us the abundant life God intended. Striving in the midst of your conflict releases and develops your gift and abilities to live and be alive in God’s purpose and plan. Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit, flowing and operating without restraint of anything, including life’s challenges, and Embrace God’s will, His purpose and plan for your life, it will yield your flourishing in and through all things.
