When God asks us to surrender our will to His, it’s our job to trust He will show us the way.

From Proverbs 3:5-6:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

No matter how many good deeds we’ve done or how many mistakes we’ve made, God’s love for us remains the same.

From Isaiah 49:15-16:  “Can a woman forget her nursing child or show no compassion for the child of her womb?  Even these might forget, yet I will not forget you.  See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.”

No matter what you have or don’t have, true wholeness comes from Jesus alone.

From Philippians 4:6-7:  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

When we learn from experience, the scars of sin can lead us to restoration and a renewed intimacy with God.

From Psalm 119:67-68:  “Before I was humbled I went astray, but now I keep Your word.  You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes.”

Reading, studying, and applying the Word may require sacrifices, but the reward of knowing your Savior better and living a life pleasing to God is worth it.

From Psalm 119:33-34:  “Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes, and I will observe it to the end.  Give me understanding, that I may keep your law and observe it with my whole heart.”

When we make time to be alone with the Father and quiet in His presence, we experience His peace.

From Psalm 131:1-2:  “Lord, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.  But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.”

To be a peacemaker is to reflect the image of our heavenly Father–using our breath, energy, and creativity to sow peace wherever the Spirit takes us.

From Matthew 5:9:  “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

God’s love for us and our resulting love for Christ compel us to obey Him in all things.

From John 14:23-24:  “Jesus answered him, ‘Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.  Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.'”

The Lord wants us to lay down our ways of figuring things out and instead to walk by faith.

From 2 Corinthians 5:6-7:  “So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord—for we walk by faith, not by sight.”
