The God of Peace

‎”And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.” – The Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:8-9 (NLT)

Perhaps the reason that we often don’t have peace is because we are focusing on the wrong things. Let’s change our focus & actually do (‘put into practice’) the things we see from God’s Word. “THEN the God of peace will be with you.”


Let’s shift our focus …

  • FROM the bad things we can’t control
  • TOWARD the good things that God has for us (and has revealed through his Word)

I believe that when we do that, we will begin to experience the presence of God in profound ways.

May the Lord richly bless you,

– Pastor
