Numbers 6: 24-26 ” The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.”

May this Priestly Blessing found in the Old Testament give you comfort today…whatever your situation.  For it tells us here that God is guarding and protecting your very life at this moment…that He lifts up His head and His face brightens as He looks straight into your eyes with love and concern.   Psalm 25:17 says, “The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish.”  Sometimes all we  long for is peace…and God wants to plant or establish that peace into your life today…replacing strife and turmoil with a sense of well-being, security, wholeness, and comfort.

Romans 12:18 ” If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”

This verse is very specific in two points.  The first relates to our responsibility in potentially volatile interactions.  We are the only person that can control our own emotions, and what rests on us here in this verse is the obligation and charge to live at peace with others.  The other point is that we can’t pick and chose who we live at peace with, for it states here we are to live peaceable  with all human beings to the very best of our ability.
