Every Christian that claims to have the peace of God doesn’t necessarily have it. In fact, the peace of God and peace of mind is a precious commodity these days; however, the lord has given us a path to peace in His word. Thus, the final four attributes in the formula for peace are:
• Delight yourself in the Lord: In other words, take pleasure in Him; enjoy Jesus. Those that delight themselves in the Lord are those who are students of His word; they find themselves consistently and persistently in the word of God. It’s not something they feel obligated to do, but they enjoy reading the word of God. Those who delight themselves in the Lord don’t need others to convince them or encourage them to serve the Lord because they do it willingly and faithfully.
• Commit your way to the Lord: Those who commit their ways (all of their ways) to the Lord are the people whose thought life and direction will be guided by the Lord. In fact, (Prov. 16:3) says, “commit thy works unto the Lord and thy thoughts shall be established”.
• Rest in the Lord: To rest in the Lord is to live and experience the promises of God. To rest is not to grow weary or give up in our service to God when adversity or difficult times come, but to cast our cares upon Him, knowing that He cares for us and that He will sustain us, no matter what we face.
• Wait on the Lord: This seems to be one of the hardest things for Christians to do is wait on the Lord, because the world has taught us that we should have what we want right now. We live in an instant society, we have instant credit, instant oatmeal and thanks to the microwave, you can even have your dinner in an instant. Furthermore, you can even get your income tax return done and your refund all in a matter of hours, when it used to take weeks for this process. However, God expects us to wait patiently on Him; for (Psalms 27:14) says, “Wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He shall strengthen thine heart, wait I say on the Lord”.
God Bless You.
