“If only you had paid attention to My commandments! Then your well-being would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea. Isaiah 48:18
Do we ever look back on our life and remember when our parents or someone told us not to do something, yet we did it anyway and caused ourselves a great deal of grief? This is exactly what God is saying to us! If only we would listen to his instructions then our lives would be more peaceful!
Most people reject God, not because of lack of evidence but because of morality! We are rebellious people by nature. We want to do what we want to do! Unfortunately when you live this live style you are going to suffer consequences!
The Law of God, his commandments, are good and holy because they are for our good! God didn’t create commands for his pleasure he did it for us, to give us a roadmap into a peaceful life. Does this mean we will never have troubles? No of course not, but if you look back at a lot of your issues, they are usually self-inflicted by bad choices!
“There is no peace for the wicked,” says the LORD. Isaiah 48:22
The world is looking for peace, especially internal peace. However God says the wicked will never have peace! Those who live in rebellion are at constant war with themselves and God. You may try to ignore Gods existence but your soul is crying out for true meaning and purpose
If you want true inner peace, look to the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to the Father God Amen!
