Peace with God
“All we like sheep have strayed away. We have left God’s plans to follow our own.” (Isaiah 53:6, NLT) To find peace with God we need to repent of all our efforts to get our own way. Some of us try to do everything right and in turn expect God to give us everything we want. Others of us decide to say, “I will do it my own way.” Both need to repent. Here is an irony: We strive to get our own way with God, but for His part God already wants to give us more than we can even imagine and the only thing stopping Him is us. The greatest thing any of us can have is to be at peace with God, and He has already given His Son to make peace possible. The only thing standing in the way is us.
