October 5–Listen…and Live in God’s Promised Peace

I will listen to what God the LORD will say:

He promises peace to His people, His saints—

but let them not return to folly.

Psalm 85:8

Mighty God, help us to listen to Your words of grace and truth…Your words of love and peace.

Help us, O LORD, to allow Your Words to save us. Help us, O LORD, to allow Your words to change us…to transform us.

Holy One, help us to allow You to hold us so lovingly…so tightly…so that we will fully receive Your promise of peace in our lives…as we listen to what You say and, then, choose—continually—to live and walk, think, speak and act in Your ways.

Anything else would return us to folly…to foolishness.

You are our God! Help us listen and live in Your peace!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
