Sometimes following peace may not feel so peaceful.

Last week I made an appoint to meet with someone about doing business.  In our meeting I felt a little uncomfortable and thought that maybe this was not the avenue that I should take.  I didn’t convey this to them and we scheduled another meeting for today.

However,  for this entire weekend I had this nagging feeling about the meeting on today.  The closer it got the more uncomfortable I felt.  Then on Sunday evening as I was thinking about the situation the Holy Spirit said to me follow peace.  So I laid the situation out before me to determined where I felt peace whether in doing  business with them or not.  I quickly realized peace was not in doing business with them.

In making the decision to follow peace I knew that I would have to disappoint this person.  I tried to think of ways to tell them that wouldn’t be so disappointing but at the end of the day the only thing I could do was to follow peace regardless of how I felt or how it would make them feel. You see, every time I’ve fail to follow peace I’ve suffered the consequences.

Therefore, I want to remind you today follow peace.  Even if it means momentary discomfort don’t apologize for peace.  It’s your compass to destiny.

Colossians 3:16 “Let the peace of God rule in your hearts to the which also ye are called in one body and be ye thankful.”
