How To Gain A Life Of Peace

Gods Recipe Prepared

If you have no peace in your life, the bible states over in the book of Proverbs; you have need of understanding.

God gave us a recipe for a peaceful life, not only a peaceful life but a long life.Who would not want a long peaceful life years of joyful living.

Proverbs 3: 1. My son forget not my law; But let thine heart keep my commandments:

Now what we need to understand that Gods laws and commandments are two different things but all is to be applied

1. His Laws:Heavens order,Instruction on how heaven is, and living accordingly.Ever evolving.Constantly making thinks new.After his liking from the beginning of time.

2. His Commandments:Written in stone will never change.Written in our stony hearts.God's word was burned in the heart of Moses.Moses was a walking tablet of God's word.never to be erased.His face shined with knowledge and understanding of who his creator was.One on One with God until you become his word.

And in return he promises this:

2.For length of days,and long life,and peace,shall they add to thee

3.Let not mercy and truth forsake thee; bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thy heart.

The neck represent strength,and the heart is used so many times in the bible because of all the chambers the heart has it's vastness. God really just let us know that the heart is a book.It can hold all that he has to give to prepare you for a great life.

4.So shalt thou find favour and good understanding(success)in the sight of God and man.

5.Trust in the lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding

God's Understanding gives us clarity for life

6.In all thy ways acknowledge him,and he shall direct thy paths

Order correct divine order and you should not stumble,God has you secured by his laws and commandments.

7.Be not wise in thine own eyes; fear the lord,and depart from evil.

Wholly God's wisdom only and departing from evil is a commandment

Than here starting at verse 8 through 25 he tells of the long life:

8.It shall be health(medicine) to thou navel,and marrow (nutriment)to thy bones

9.Honor the lord with thy substance( who are you?; and all that you are)and with the first-fruits of all thine increase

10.So shall thy barns be filled with plenty,and thou presses shall burst out wine new wine

13. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom,and the man that getteth understanding.

14.For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine Gold.

15.She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

Get what God stated here in verse 16 and 15 WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING is the richness of his kingdom,nothing can come close at all.

16.Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour

17.Her ways of pleasantness,and all her paths are peace.

18.She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her;and happy is every one that retaineth her.



 God shows us what he did with Wisdom and Understanding:

19. The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth;by understanding hath he established the heavens.

Great power should he remind us!

20.By his knowledge the depths are broken up,and the clouds drop down the dew.

21.My son, let not them depart from thine eyes:keep sound wisdom and discretion:

22.So shall thy be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

23.Than shall thou walk in thy way safely,and thy foot shall not stumble.

24.When thou layest down,thou shalt not be afraid;yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

The Great Teacher

Proverbs 4:

2.For I gave you good doctrine,forsake ye not my law.

4.He have taught me also,and said unto me,Let thine heart retain my words; keep my commandments,and live

5. Get Wisdom,get Understanding; forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

One on One with my Father the Great Teacher.

Thank you Sharon for this yes some times we just need a jolting.

Proverbs 15.

1. A kind answer soothes angry feelings,but harsh words stir them up.

2. Words of wisdom come from the wise, but fools speak foolishness.

3. The Lord sees everything, whether good or bad.

4. Kind words are good medicine,...........

I wrote a request as to how I can write into your fan mail but I don't see anywhere where I can write, but you write in mine.

God loves you
