Glorify God • Magnify Him in this World!

The Difference that the World Seeks

Scripture
6 Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?”
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord!
7 You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.
8 In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety. Psalms 4:6-8 NASB

Observation
People are looking and seeking for something that will satisfy them and give them peace. They try to find it in “stuff.” But in the end, they get a temporary reprieve from the pain, fear and uncertainty life always brings.

But the person who looks to the Lord, seeks peace from a different source. The person who seeks the Lord finds happiness and peace in Him. This, the believer can experience even in the evening when they sleep, the Lord is for them.

Application
I need to rely and depend more on Jesus everyday. I need to ask for the Holy Spirit to shine light on my whole day. I should be an example to those who are needing to find true peace.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for letting me in on your awesome ways. Thank you for your peace and love that I know is there when I turn my attention to you. Lord, help me to shine a light so that others who need you can see what it is like to experience your peace and happiness too.
