Seek God’s ‘peace’ concerning it

‘You will go out in joy, and be led forth with peace.’ Isaiah 55:12 NIV

God reveals His will in several ways. One is by giving us a sense of ‘peace’ that we are doing the right thing. Paul writes, ‘Let the peace of God rule in your hearts.’ (Colossians 3:15 NKJV) That means you should follow ‘the peace rule’. Again he writes, ‘The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds.’ (Philippians 4:7 NKJV) You don’t need all the answers to have peace about it.

General Eisenhower was faced with the responsibility of making one of the most far-reaching decisions ever posed to a single man: changing the date of D-Day—the Allied invasion of Europe during the Second World War—at the last moment. If he got it wrong, thousands of soldiers could die. Talk about pressure! But he was the supreme commander and the only man who could make the decision. Looking back on it, he wrote: ‘I knew I did not have the required wisdom, and turned to God. I asked Him to give me wisdom. I yielded myself to Him, and He gave me clear guidance. He gave me insight to see what was right, and He endowed me with the courage to make my decision. And finally He gave me peace of mind in the knowledge that, having been guided by God to a decision, I could leave the results to Him.’

Are you feeling anxious because you are being called upon today to make a decision; one that will not only affect you but others too? The word for you today is—pray, trust God for guidance, ask Him for peace, act, and trust Him for the right result.
