We can’t be jumping into every opportunity that presents itself. We can’t be chasing after everything that seems ok. We are to have enough peace to stay put and wait on God. Enough peace to be content in every circumstance. Enough peace to trust in God.
If we want to grow in our peace, we need to tuck in even closer with God. The further away we move from Him, the less peace we will have.
"We have come into an intimate experience with God’s love, and we trust in the love he has for us. God is love! Those who are living in love are living in God, and God lives through them."
If we know and believe that we are truly loved then we can then release that same love to the one’s around us.
As long as our soul is large and in charge, the fruit of the Spirit will not be able to grow and mature in us. A submitted soul is a thriving soul.
