Psalm 85:8  “I listen carefully to what God the LORD is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways.” (NLT)

God wants peace with us more than we want peace with him. He wants peace for us and provides the well-lighted path into that blessed state of being. 

The songwriter teaches how to experience peace with God and the peace of God in all circumstances. First, he says, “I listen carefully to what the LORD is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people.”

We hear God’s voice most clearly through the Bible. Establishing a daily Bible reading habit leads to a more peaceful life.

Second, he says, “But let them not return to their foolish ways.” 

It doesn’t take a great deal of thought to see some of our foolish moments in the proper light. It’s pretty easy to see what we should have done differently. Having learned those lessons and gained that perspective, let’s not go down that road again. 

God’s words are truth and life. God’s ways are peaceful and pleasant. 

I will listen to God, do what he says, and live a peaceful life.

Our Father, give me ears to hear what you are saying to me today. Give me a willing and obedient heart to follow where you lead. Empower me to live a peaceful life and to carry your peace into every conversation and situation. Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 119:114

Psalm 119:114 You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope.

Daily D – Jonah 4:2-3

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.”

Daily D – Psalm 115:14-15

Psalm 115:14, 15 May the Lord richly bless both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Daily D – Joel 2:12-13

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.”

Daily D – Hosea 14:8-9

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.”
