share why you have peace


Success is defined in many different ways.  It really depends on where you are coming from or what slant you look at in life.  From the mind of God and the Bible success is best defined as stepping forward to follow God and leaving the results to God.

Sharing our story with others and how God has changed our lives is a reminder of how God changed people in past, continues to change people in the present and will continue to work in the lives of people until the end or when Jesus returns.  The choice is ours to either share our stories or to keep quiet.  The consequences or rewards are also ours.

Joshua 1:7  NASB
Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.

Be careful to live according to what God says.  The outcome will be success, real success.

1 Peter 3:15  NASB
but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;

Be ready to make a defense to anyone who asks.  That means be ready to share your story.  That is not a suggestion.  It is a mandate.  Share why you have hope when so many others don’t.

Isaiah 26:3  NASB
The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.

I need that peace, God’s peace.  The more my mind stays set on God and my steps are following God the more my mind and heart will hold on to perfect peace.  That is perfect peace but not necessarily situations that are peace filled.

Share your story with those people that come your way!
