RENEWAL Devotional: You are an Instrument of Peace
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for Renewal at Brookhaven Hospital
Have you ever noticed that when you talk to strangers, some just have a way of talking to you like they have known you forever. This can be such a blessing when we encounter these types of people during our day. We can be such an instrument of peace to others. We can choose to live in peace. Sometimes it can be hard work to stay in peace. It involves being uninfluenced by any thing or person who might detract from that sense of peace. True peace is when you are able to control the situation and not let obstacles rob you of your joy. It is only in Christ that we have true peace.
Psalms 121 1:2 says, “I lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.”
People all over the world are struggling to have peace. We can be an instrument of peace to others by making sure that Christ is in the center of our lives.
