John 14:27 NIV
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
https://bible.com/bible/111/jhn.14.27.NIV

1. Your number one WEAPON to use against the enemy is your peace.

2. If your peace DWELLS in stuff, then he will take your stuff so he can ruin your peace.

Two Types Of Peace

1. A worldly peace is determined by CARNAL stimuli.

Two Types Of Peace

2. A Godly peace is determined by SPIRITUAL stimuli.

Ephesians 5:18-19 (BSB)
“Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to reckless indiscretion. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.19Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord…”

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

1. WORRY grows when we place our faith in worldly things.

Matthew 6:28-34 NLT
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

2. Peace is found in a SECRET place.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

3. You cannot speak peace if you don’t DWELL in it.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

4. You cannot speak peace if your mind space is being used to MANUFACTURE problems.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

5. Action steps: Will you trade your PART-time peace for God’s FULL-time peace plan?

Hope 2019

I wait for the Lord , my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. Israel, put your hope in the Lord , for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.
Psalm 130:5‭-‬7 NIV
https://bible.com/bible/111/psa.130.5-7.NIV

Trying to understand what HOPE is all about.

Believing that Jesus is who he says he is and will do what he says he will do. My prayer for pre believing family.

Gluttony….

While doing our churches 21 days of prayer for peace…I am struggling with peace and joy. I am also struggling with the whole middle age weight gain. It is really laziness on a lack of commitment on my part. I know, If I stick to the work out plan, and clean eating, (and now, weight watchers), the weight will come off.

I think I may be struggling with the sin of gluttony.

Gluttony, def., (Latin: gula, derived from the Latin gluttire meaning “to gulp down or swallow”) means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items.

I am able to buy what I want, when I want, eat what I want, and really not worry about the expense. I have become undisciplined. Ouch.

Lord, please fill me with your spirit, that I would desire the things you desire. Give me your wisdom, and grace. Forgive my sin father. Change my heart….
