Daily D – Psalm 34:14
Psalm 34:14 Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. (NLT)
Our lives are most often about as peaceful as we want them to be. Since we tend to find what we are looking for, “Search for peace, and work to maintain it.”
We can have peace, or we can win an argument.
We can have peace, or we can have our say.
We can have peace, or we can remind others who is in charge here.
Feel like arguing? How about holding your peace instead?
Feel like you must say something? How about turning your passion into a prayer?
Feel like your authority is being challenged? How about demonstrating the peaceful presence of truth under control?
I will search for peace and work to maintain it.
Our Father, bless us with the peace of your presence at all times and in all things. Empower us to live in peace will all people as far as it depends on us. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
