Peace With Your Enemy

When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
— Proverbs 16:7

The sign of you becoming a spiritual super hero is not at the stake of losing your peace with man. There are many people who think having more “haters” is a sign of their spiritual growth. The Bible does say that this world will HATE you as it hated Jesus (John 15:18-19) but it also instructs us to love our enemies (Matt. 5:44). 

The glorious promise made in Proverbs, is that when our ways please God, He makes even the worst enemy be at peace with us! If our motives are pure before the Lord, if we continue to do what His Word commands, PEACE will fill our lives. 

Have you seen what’s taking place in our world? There's an assignment made from wicked people to cause division and hatred among us! The problem doesn't lie in the color of our skin or what part of town you live in, the problem is in the heart. This world is chock-full of people who need the love of God shed abroad in their hearts. That’s what you’re here for! That’s what I’m here for. Maybe people don't like that I’m Christian, a Puerto Rican or a female, WHO CARES!? My job is to love people, pray for my enemies and make sure my ways are pleasing to The Master. When I do that, God’s peace overtakes my life. 

Psalm 23:6 says, “Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life”. That's the sign of someone who's connected with God! Goodness and mercy follows them. Peace goes with them wherever they go. Is it any wonder our crusades, that are in some of the worst, most violent places in the USA, are breeding grounds for revival and miracles of God? Our ways please God, so, regardless of what the schemes of the devil are behind closed doors, there’s peace! Receive that peace today! Forgive those who hate you and begin to love and pray for them!
