SCRIPTURE: James 3:18, NLT
And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
Friend, today, more than ever, peace and unity are so important because we have an enemy who targets our families and relationships and brings division. Adversity comes. Disagreements happen. We have to do whatever we can to stand together. One of the most powerful ways you can strengthen your relationships is by being a peacemaker.
Think about a campfire. It can only burn as long as someone is throwing logs on it. Maybe you feel as though you have a fire of strife and confusion in your home or in your workplace. If you stay focused on your differences, there is going to be division. However, if you change your focus and look for the common ground of peace, you can bring harmony into your relationships again. If you ask God to help you be a peacemaker, if you stop throwing logs on the fire, He will supernaturally cause that fire to be extinguished. When we dwell together in unity, we honor God and open the door for His hand of blessing in every area of our lives.
“Father, thank You for being the God of peace and for the promise that You will be with me. I choose to humble myself, to be patient, to bear with others, and live in peace and unity. I declare that I will stop fueling the fires of strife that divide us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
