The last sentence you read, Paul many times was a slave in prison, but he is without blame, for he is always under the protection of the care of the Lord. Can we say; thank you Jesus for obeying the Lord? Then Sunday the hurricane Katrina struck, leaving millions of people with a decision, do we leave or do we stay. Now we know the rest of the story for maybe thousands have perished and who know how many will suffer for life.

Only God is holding our world together when we are seeing ourselves out of balance. Then in Iraq a thousand people perish over someone yelling  something about a suicide bomber, and people throw themselves into the Tigris River killing themselves. Thank the Lord He is still in control if we let Him. Out of disaster we find people coming together in order to survive.

We are so smart what canít we make and do? We have all the understanding and knowledge, but what do we lack wisdom? Wisdom is the ability to take the understanding and knowledge we have and putting it into common sense. Who do we blame for what we see in Katrinaís path, the government, the local officials, and even God, when all we need to do is look at how smart we are? Where do we build and how high do we build, is it able to withstand nature? God want us to obey who?

The devastation we are seeing requires we all work together, regardless of race, religion, or color, to bring order as we accept God best for the area and our world.

Could God be sending us a message he is coming soon and what we do must be done with the full knowledge of a heaven to gain and a hell to shun?

What is Gods Will for our lives is an age old question that can best be understood as we read the Bible and find it a pathway to our feet, a light to our body, soul, and spirit. Gods will is that I might experience growth in every area of my life. It is not necessary how much I know, or how many people I know, and influence, it is; am I reaching my potential in every area of my life? Gods will is that I have grace and peace in operation in my life, to where everyone of Gods created beings is as important as I am. That is really preferring, others over myself. Romans 12  10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; 11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; 13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. 14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Now letís look at the next word in verse 2 Peace, a word we all want, but seems to be escaping us in every area of life. The church, our government and economic is faced with many un-peaceful situations. Peace is like Grace it depends upon whom you believe rather youíre covered by grace and peace. 

Terrorism has spread into all corners of the word and people are stressed beyond measure it seems in many areas. Only the Lord is able to allow us to live in a world of unrest and terror and yet be at peace. The battle is raging for mans souls, and we need to accept all the Lord has for us in this package of Salvation.

Barclay's Daily Study Bible comments In Greek the word for peace is eirene (<G1515>), but it translates the Hebrew word shalowm (<H7965>). In the Bible peace is never a purely negative word; it never describes simply the absence of trouble. Shalowm (<H7965>) means everything which makes for a man's highest good. Christian peace is something quite independent of outward circumstances. A man might live in ease and luxury and on the fat of the land, he might have the finest of houses and the biggest of bank accounts, and yet not have peace; on the other hand, a man might be starving in prison, or dying at the stake, or living a life from which all comfort had fled, and be at perfect peace. The explanation is that there is only one source of peace in all the world, and that is doing the will of God. When we are doing something which we know we ought not to do, or are evading something that we know we ought to do, there is always a haunting dispeace at the back of our minds; but if we are doing something very difficult, even something we do not want to do, so long as we know that it is the right thing there is a certain contentment in our hearts. "In his will is our peaceĒ.
