Recognizing God's Whistleblower... Peace
Family Series (Richardson Baptist: Message 3 of 7)
“Recognizing God’s Whistleblower... Peace” (Colossians 3)
This unsettled spirit is actually a gift... a gift of His unfailing love that reveals we've taken our eyes off of Jesus. And He uses the absence of His peace to let us know that the eyes of our faith is not fixed on Him and we’re drifting off the race He's given us to run (Hebrews 12:1-5 ; Isaiah 26:3 ; Colossians 3:15).
Peace, the very opposite of an unsettle and frustrated spirit, is what God described as a "whistleblower" or referee/arbitrator that He’s assigned to RULE in our hearts. And, as with an official at a basketball game, peace “blows the whistle” on our lives when we’ve “broken” faith with the Lord. Broken faith is when we're putting something else, even something as good as God's will, before seeking Him first, and other things has our attention and not the Lord (Proverbs 3:5-6 ; Matthew 6:33 ; Isaiah 26:3).
His Recognized Presence... really does make an everlasting difference today, tomorrow and forever.
