Live in Peace by ADS

(My grandmother, Anna Daisy Siemens, wrote poetry and prose. This devotion was written and published for Devotions for the Deaf in 1994)Romans 12:18If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.Isaac set an example of peace. While he lived in the valley of Gerar, King Abimelech told him to move since their servants were constantly at war about water rights. Isaac moved — again and again. He moved and dug new wells. But Abimelech finally wanted a peace treaty with him because he saw how God blessed Isaac for his peaceful ways of living.Jesus says, “…my peace I give you. I do not give as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.)James 3:18 says, “those who sow in peace will harvest righteousness.” The Hebrew writer goes one step farther to say, “Live in peace and be holy for without holiness we will never see the Lord.Hebrews 12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.) Peace is a part of holiness.Prayer: Lord, please give me perfect peace so that it may flow to others in need.
