Peaceful Decisions {Colossians 3:15}

This single verse in Colossians, provides a great truth to consider when making decisions in our lives. Many times in life when faced with challenging decisions, it seems like all options are bringing stress rather than peace. Why is that? We should never feel stressed into making a decision. With God in our lives we can make decisions with peace in our hearts.

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,

to the which also ye are called in one body;

 and be ye thankful.

It is interesting to note that the greek word for {rule} means to umpire or to be enthroned as a decider of everything. What does this mean?

When making decisions in our lives, we can expect for God to give us what we need so we can make peaceful decisions.  We take the time to look to God for knowledge and wisdom. We build habits of asking God! We go to His Word!

James 1:5  

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God,

that giveth to all men liberally,

and upbraideth not;

and it shall be given him.

We allow the peace of God to rule in our hearts by asking God for the wisdom we need. When we are experiencing stress in decision making, we learn to ask God! God will provide. He will always give us a way out!

I Corinthians 10:13

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:

but God is faithful, who will not suffer (allow) you

 to be tempted above that ye are able;

but will with the temptation also

make a way to escape,

that you may be able to bear it.

The way to escape or the way out, is the answer of peace. At times we all have stress in our lives or a feeling of being lost, so it’s time to go to God for the wisdom we need.  God’s wisdom brings peace and is gentle to receive.

James 3:17

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,

then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, 

full of mercy and good fruits,

without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

So remember, when you don’t like your options in life, ask God and wait for His answer of peace! His wisdom is gentle and peaceable. He will provide you with the wisdom you need to have the best solution. Why? Because He loves you. Then you can let His peace rule in your heart! How simple it can be to make peaceful decisions with God in our lives! If you agree, please share post with a friend or family member. Then share a comment on a peaceful decision you made today!

Enjoy a peaceful heart,
