Job 22:21-30 (NLT)
21 “Submit to God and you will have peace; then things will go well for you.
22 Listen to his instructions, and store them in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored— so clean up your life.
24 If you give up your lust for money and throw your precious gold into the river,
25 the Almighty himself will be your treasure. He will be your precious silver!
26 “Then you will take delight in the Almighty and look up to God.
27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfil your vows to him.
28 You will succeed in whatever you choose to do, and light will shine on the road ahead of you.
29 If people are in trouble and you say, ‘Help them,’ God will save them.
30 even sinners will be rescued; they will be rescued because your hands are pure.”
Wow what a fantastic scripture. So many times in scripture we are told if we do something then the Lord will do another. Sometimes when things go wrong we so easily loose Gods peace and walk away from him in anger and frustration. But that is not what God intends for us, he wants to be our peace permanently because he loves us and wants the best for us. God wants us to stay in His peace so He can mould and shape us and bring us through ths tough situation that we find ourselves in. Now is the time to pray and enter into worship, to fix our eyes and our hope totally on God, to submit to his leading and trust him. If we can do this then we can know his peace, a peace that passes all understanding
