Proverbs of peace


A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones.

Proverbs 17:22 NKJV

The book of Proverbs is rich in wisdom. It amplifies the truth that we can have peace and be content in all circumstances. Let’s examine a few of these proverbs of peace:

· Proverbs 1:7: Fear and reverence of the Lord, which leads to surrender and submission, is the first step in enjoying contentedness.

· Proverbs 1:10-19: There are those who seek happiness through ill-gotten gains and wickedness. Never look at the world in envy, especially when you consider that their methods take away the life of the possessors.

· Proverbs 11:5, 30: Righteousness brings true contentment because right thinking and right actions are a joy to the Lord.

· Proverbs 16:32: It is better to have self-control than one’s own dynasty.

· Proverbs 17:22: There is no way to put a price tag on good health brought on by joy and peace through a life lived for the Lord.

· Proverbs 18:22; 22:4; 25:6-7; 29:23: Humility is a cornerstone to peace and contentment, because humility never allows you to make yourself more than what God would have you to be.

· Proverbs 21:26; 22:1: Generosity and a good name are the natural results of honoring the Lord with obedience and staying our minds on Him.

· Proverbs 25:27; 27:23-24; 28:19: Delighting yourself in the Lord, His work, and His will for your life produces gains beyond measure.

Father, make me content in every circumstance. Give me peace in
every situation. I claim these proverbs of peace to be manifested in
my life today.

These verses are from an email thread I receive daily for praise and worship it is called GRACE FOR THE DAY.
