THE GOD OF PEACE...


This was taken by me to my feet when I was at First Responders at a murder site several months ago.  When standing right by a tree, I was told that my feet were where the murdered man had hit the ground right there.  We were praying for the nearby homes...none were connected to this murder, but his body hit their yard...and some people came by who had thought who the man was.  Anyhow, the Word of God grabbed me that time when I saw the photo.

About 15 years ago, my husband, Dave, had written a song, There is No Counsel/Underneath Your Feet.  After Proverbs 21:30, Psalm 2:2-4, II Corinthians 10:4, then this verse of Romans 16:20 was used:

 The God of peace, living through us, is crushing him,
 underneath our feet...
The God of peace is crushing Satan underneath our feet.
In the dust and broken laying underneath our feet,
 nevermore to rise again from underneath our feet....
The God of peace is crushing Satan underneath our feet.
Underneath our feet:
 underneath, underneath, underneath our feet!

We've played it many times in the past years and people sang and sang and rejoiced!!  Years ago Dave's favorite portion of the Bible is Romans 16:20.  I agree with that wonderfulness!!  Every day I think of it. 

BTW, trusting the Lord is all I can ever do, and focusing on Him from now to Heaven and then, when I'm there, I'll certainly continually focus on Him forever and ever.  Nothing else counts!  I can hardly wait!!


SUNDAY STILLNESS

The God of peace is working through us as well. We can make peace flourish or we can make evil flourish.

Thank you for this encouraging reminder that no matter what the reality of the news is or what might even be going on in our own lives, God is already victorious! Amen!
