4/14/20 My Walk With God - peace in the middle of war (COVID-19)
Isaiah 48:18 "Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments!
Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness
like the waves of the sea;
Isaiah 48:4, 12, 14 Because I know that you are stiff-necked...Listen to
me, O Jacob...Assemble all of you and listen!
THE PEACE LADDER -- 8 STEPS TO PEACE IN A TIME OF WAR...
1) Forgiveness -- Phil 4:1-3 to experience peace, we must lay down our
bitterness and forgive
2) Rejoice -- Phil 4:4 even when life is a battle, the Spirit brings joy
3) Community -- Phil 4:4 let your reasonableness be known to all -- we
won't make it by ourselves, we must connect and function in community
4) Pray -- Phil 4:6-7 rather than worry, we give our supplications, we pray
with thanksgiving. Gratitude is battle, our weapon is giving thanks
The result of these 4 steps is peace, deposited in our heart/mind to guard!
