I keep getting this verse ...

I keep getting this verse:

“When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him” Proverbs 16:7

Yowza! I’m sure there are times when we don’t even want to live at peace with our enemies...

But it is the heart of the Lord for us to live at peace with one another ...

“ ... Love one another ...”  John 13:34

“ ... Forgive one another ... Ephesians 4:32

“ ... Encourage one another ... “   1 Thessalonians 5:11

“ ... Live at peace with everyone ... “   Romans 12:18

It was the “He” in the verse that particularly caught my attention ...

He ... God our Father ... it is He who brings about that peace, that reconciliation ...

It is the heart of The Father for all His kids to get along ... to live at peace with one another ... so much so ... that He is willing “to make even our enemies to be at peace with us” ...

“He” doing it speaks to me of our wonderful Father doing a sovereign work ...  He Himself bringing it to pass ...

 

Lord, I ask, that for each one of us ...

That our ways would be pleasing to you ...

And that You would make even our enemies to be at peace with us ...

Lord, I ask for ... and call forth ...  that sovereign move of God ... for reconciliation ... for each one of us, in the name of Jesus ...  Amen.
