He Promises Peace

I like to sing, and sometimes I am remembering just choruses from songs, and this is one. He promises peace, He promises peace, He promises peace to His people, I will listen to what God the Lord will say.

I will listen to what God the Lord will say, He speaks to His people, to His saints, but let them not turn again to folly. Psalm 85:8 This is the Amplified Version. Some others may say promise, I will check it, but it goes well anyway with speaking peace.

Truly, the Lord does promise peace, but we have to obey and receive. Peace is not just a given, as believers we should understand it as a fruit of the Spirit, and as His peace, not the world’s.

We should also know it is for the righteous and that is us as believers, Jesus is the only one who could impute His righteousness, He took our place. Literally and spiritually.

That is the only way we are saints, and we are not to return to folly, which can be sin or foolishness. In other words, we must not return to our old ways but to follow His ways and thoughts, they are a lot higher than ours. But He will teach us by the Spirit and give us the peace He promises.

Salvation is more than just going to heaven someday, it is healing, deliverance and angels protecting us and it is His peace. He both promises and speaks peace to His people, so let’s listen to what God, the Lord will say. It is something that the Holy Spirit will help you learn, you have to discern the Lord, His peace, His music, the worship and peaceful praise of your heart in order to experience the peace He promises.

It is a knowing inside that deep within that no matter what happens the Lord is in control, will not leave or forsake you, another promise of His peace.

  1. Really wonderful message ,very inspiring and encouraging too.We have the privilege to enjoy life with his peace,love,joy and blessings ,that is more important for all those who are still living and as you have also said that salvation is there but that is for the next life .So we don’t have to think only of the life after death because the Lord is with us in this world to solve our troubles and sorrows.Thanks a lot for sharing.🌹👍🙏

  2. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
    But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
    For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
    1 Corinthians 2:14-16
