Isaiah 48:17-18 This is what the Lord says -- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along the paths you should follow. Oh, that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea.
God himself tells us right here the way to peace is listening to God’s commands … doing what he ask us to do…. Pleasing God instead of trying to please people. Have you ever know a one of those people that you can never please…. My husband puts it this way “If you gave her a million dollars she would complain because you put it in the wrong hand.” … well God is not like that… if you do what pleases God, he will be happy with you… God has the ability to give us peace like a gentle river and righteousness rolling over us like waves in the sea…. We need to wake up each morning and make a conscious effort to follow God’s path… to listen to God’s commands, to choose to please God. When we do this everything else will fall into place.
