Seeking Peace-Be Willing

12 Jul

I read this promise a few days ago.

You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace. Isaiah 55:12

Galatians 5:22 lists the fruit of the Spirit as love followed by joy, then peace. I believe without God’s gift of love, joy and peace in my oh so fallible heart, I am incapable of reaping the rest of the fruit: forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

To be honest, I am hesitant to move beyond peace. Compared to forbearance, peace is a picnic.

I am claiming the promise of Isaiah 55:12.

He has promised, I need to be willing to be led.
