In His Praise — October 15, 2017

Today Rev. Nickles talked about wall building. Sometimes we intentionally or unintentionally build walls around ourselves. Maybe we have been hurt by someone or some situation, maybe we’re unsure how to move forward, maybe we just do not want to deal with someone or maybe we really do not feel love for others in our hearts. Whatever the reason, we begin to alienate others by our actions, and our words. We feel we don’t need anyone else and just want to be left alone. We may think we are doing this to protect ourselves and those we care about from hurtful situations, or that avoiding conflict will cause the problem to go away. But before long we have built a wall, a barrier between ourselves and others. All we are is alone and full of anger, resentment and even hate. When problems are not dealt with they tend to manifest and grow bigger. So we end up surrounded by an even greater wall than which we started.

But, as always, the good news is that God has an answer for us. In Ephesians 2:14 it says, “For He himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility”. All we need to do is let God take over in our lives. Let Him fill us with His love and joy. Let Him give us direction in how to react to others and in return we will have peace, contentment, love and happiness in our lives.

Now that is some very good news!!
