No matter how hard we try to avoid it, there are bound to be times when we run into conflict in our lives. We may stop and ask, but what can we do? Ronald Reagan was said that, "Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means." As followers of God, we have access to peaceful means!
God is the source of righteousness and a source of love and peace. We know we will encounter conflict, but we can control our response. By calling on God for wisdom and guidance, we can respond in righteousness that will result in peace, quietness, and trust. We can overcome conflict through the peaceful means offered through God's direction. Conflict can be quieted through God's righteousness so we can live in peace and love!
When faced with conflict, trust in God's righteousness to overcome with His peace and love.
Thank You for being righteous and ready to guide me in dealing with conflict and living in peace. Please help me to hear and follow Your wisdom in all the situations that I face. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
