Psalm 119:56 (KJV) This I had, because I kept thy precepts. | Bible  scriptures, Psalm 119, Psalms

This I had, because I kept Jesus! With obedience comes peace. When we are walking right with the Lord Jesus, we have peace in our hearts knowing that we are keeping His commandments. The Lord made it easy for us. He explained that the Ten Commandments all stem around two:

Mat 22:37-40  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  (38)  This is the first and great commandment.  (39)  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  (40)  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

When Jesus is our focus in life, we can’t help but be prosperous in our spiritual life! Today’s verse reminds us to keep Jesus at the forefront of our day – walk in Him – walk in His Spirit. I would rather be at peace in my relationship with Christ than have wealth or anything else in life. There’s no price on the peace that one can have knowing that he has eternal life and a right relationship with his Saviour!

Php 4:7  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 

This is especially important in today’s political climate where the evil one is doing his best to bring chaos into our lives. The child of God doesn’t need to fret or be concerned. Our main concern is to be faithful and to love the Lord with all our hearts. Peace is given to those who go forth with this mission in their hearts.

Josh 22:5  But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Everything else will seamlessly fall into place when we do so. Amen?
