“His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land.” Psalm 25:13
Remember last week?
We talked about fearing the Lord.
And when we do that, God instructs us in His best way for us.
The psalm continues this week as we note your soul abides in peace or well-being when you fear the Lord, trusting only in Him.
As a return for your loyalty, God brings you His peace.
Choosing God, your pitiful soul becomes full of God’s peace.
Filled to the top with God’s calm.
Resting within His peace.
Not only that, but the psalmist also declares your offspring will prosper.
Godly moms and dads who surrender their households to the ways of God will not only have peace in the now but will influence their children to live for God.
God will be with you when you place Him first, spreading His ways to the next generation.
In this life, people do almost anything for peace in their cluttered lives.
You’re telling me that all I have to do for real peace is to live in fear of the Lord?
Dethroning yourself daily and placing God on the throne of your heart will bring you peace.
Not only momentary peace, but you will abide in His peace.
Abide means to dwell.
I, for one, would like to dwell within the perfect peace of Almighty God.
