The Lord Be With You Today!
But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest,
whose waves cast up mire and mud.
(Though the Lord extends mercy and forgiveness
to those who repent and cry out to Him,
lovingly inviting them into the freedom of His peace and rest,
those who choose to remain in disobedience and sin,
like the constantly roiling, restless sea,
live turbulent lives that are tossed about in turmoil
and covered in the muddy mire of their sin.
they have no peace or cleansing from their agitation and confusion
because they remain separated from God.)
“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”
(Those who continue to live in rebellion against God,
because of their wicked choices to go their own way,
have no peace with their conscience, no peace with the Body of Christ
with whom they have not joined in relationship and fellowship,
and, most importantly, they have no peace with their Maker
Who longs to extend His complete and saturating shalom peace to them.
For those of us who do yield our lives to the Lord,
He extends the peace that passes all human understanding,
that guards our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus,
that fills our lives with steadfastness and steady perseverance
in the face of trials and troubles in life.
He is the God of peace and, when our lives are secure in Him,
nothing can shake us from that place of peace in Him.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
