Colossians 3:15 And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].
Love this scripture. We need to live in the peace of God. God has given us a warning system buillt in.
When we lose our peace; then it's a warning to us something is wrong.
The bible says that that the peace of God is an umpire. Like a referree guarding our hearts wow. If you feel uneasy about something, feel disturbed, lose your peace, it's like a referee blowing the whistle in the game of your life. So Stop. Something is wrong.
It could be something you've done or said. You lose your peace. So stop and make amends. It could be you meet with someone and you just feel uncomfortable. You don't know why but your peace is disturbed when you're with them.
Take it as a warning signal. Something is wrong, be careful with that person, or cut off contact. It could be you just can't get peace about a decision you're making. You feel sonething is up in the depths of your stomach. Don't make that decision, that choice. It's a warning, a whistle, stop and reconsider.
Have you lost your peace? Peace out? If a warning light comes on in my car saying something's wrong; I would be crazy to blame the warning light and cover it up. Yet so many ignore the warning when they've lost their peace, rather than stop and adjust. Some will use substances to blot or cover up the feeling. But it's a warning it's God getting our attention. It needs the right response.
If your peace is out today, don't ignore, do something spiritual about it.
Father thank You for Your peace. Thank You that I can live and walk in harmony and peace. Make me more aware of the referee that is peace, that I might guard my heart and not make mistakes today. Let me know the things that are upsetting my peace so I can make amends in Jesus' Name, Amen.
