Glorify God • Magnify Him in this World!

Peace with Others

If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
Romans 12:18 ESV

Living in peace with everyone is a great goal. But although you might desire it, others might not want it.

You can only do what you can do! In other words, you can only control your actions. Trying to control others leads to manipulation. And that never works out right. It usually makes things worse!

So there are times when you must do what you can and then trust the Lord for the rest when it comes to people.

Pray! Turn the situation over to Him! He can do more in one moment than you could do in a while lifetime of jumping up and down and throwing a fit!

God is still in the work of changing hearts and minds. He is a lot more powerful than you!

Do your part and let the Lord do the rest.

Father, help me to live in peace and to trust You. There is no other way to live.
