I really loved this devotional.  Especially for mothers day!  I hope you take a 
minute to read too.  


Peaceful on Purpose
When Jesus left this earth, He said that He was leaving His peace with us. Now 
the decision we have to make is, are we going to choose to live in the peace He 
has given us? 

Of course, the devil works overtime to try to get you upset. Why? Because he 
knows that if you don't remain peaceful, you can't hear from God. 

If you watch your life, you'll be amazed at how many times a week Satan 
launches an attack against you for the sole purpose of stealing your peace. 
When I finally saw that, God said to me in my spirit, "Joyce, if the devil 
wants your peace that badly, then there must be something pretty powerful about 
being peaceful." 

It's true! So now when the devil tries to steal my peace, I enjoy holding on to 
it, knowing that I'm getting the better of him. That doesn't mean I don't feel 
upset, but I can do something positive about it, I can control myself and be 
peaceful on purpose.

Being peaceful on purpose is something we have to do for ourselves. Will you 
choose God's peace? 

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for providing me with Your peace. When the 
devil tries to steal my peace, reveal his plans to me. I won't let him take my 
peace. Instead, I'll remain rooted in You.

John 14:27 NLT
""I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is 
a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid."
