Length of Days - Search for Freedom

Monday, October 3, 2011


“It isn’t polite to argue about religion! I just want to keep the peace.” Have you ever heard that pronouncement before?

Giving testimony to the glorious work of God in your life is not argumentative. It is bearing witness. When you are sure of the facts and beliefs of His love and grace, your case is presented in love and within the peace God has promised. God’s peace, however, is not the peace that man would demand.

If you deny God, in order to keep man’s peace - “politically correctness” - you are turning your back on God’s peace, in favor of false peace, the rules of which are defined by others. Do you really want to turn over your peace of mind, heart, and soul, to a volatile pack of dogs, seeking only their own share of the meat thrown before them? And, believe me, that “share” is not divided equally. It is grabbed at, fought for, and dishonestly stolen from those who will not speak up for themselves or their God.

Give me God’s peace and I will willingly share it with others. For, it is not mine to possess but to give generously, and it will be replaced abundantly by our God who fills the world with His peace, for those who will claim it. Never argue religion. Gently go about sharing His love and peace with all those around you and He will honor Himself and you. Let us pray:

“Father God, giver and author of peace and love, we bow before your Holy name. May your kingdom of peace come to live within us, so that we may have nothing to share with others but You. Today is a new day. Our old habits have passed and have been selectively forgotten by You, because of your profound grace. We pray that we may discern when the world tries to manipulate us in favor of chaos, rather than seizing your peace. Give us the courage to testify, with quiet confidence, to the healing love you have given us. We acknowledge that people cannot hear us when we shout. Fill us with so much peace and love that it overflows our being and fills all those around us. Forgive us when we have been silent. That silence erodes the tether that links our hearts to yours. Jesus, Savior of our souls, has shown us the way. We ask to walk on the Way with Him. We pray in Jesus’ precious name. Amen”
“God gives us stories that testify to His love. Let me tell you mine.”
