15. And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from the Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts – deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds- (in that peaceful state) to which (as members of Christ’s) one body you were also called to live. And be thankful – appreciative, giving praise to God always.


Peace -d) “Shalom” – safe, well, happy, prosperity, rest, favor, well, quietness, Health.

When our soul is at peace, we are filled with more than peace. All these are to bring soul harmony – happy – rest – favor – quietness – health – prosperity – welfare. When there are problems that would cause anxiety or fear that is time to pray to the “umpire.”

Satan is the thief who will continually try to steal your peace if we let him. Too many times we fight our own battles and lose our peace. This is saying to “let” peace rule. We have to make that decision to give the reins over to Jesus, Who is the Prince of Peace.

When we go here and there without letting the Lord make the decision for us, we can fall into a trap. We must let the Lord be our guide and follow the Lamb. I have heard it said, “When you don’t know what to do, you don’t do it.” If you doubt what you are to do and still do it you are opening the door for trouble.

We may have pressure from another person to get us to go somewhere and do something the Lord is not telling us to do. Our lives will have more peace when we learn to say “No.” We must let Christ make all our decisions and lead us. We must be praying and binding Satan in all matters in our life.

And we must never forget to be thankful and positive, giving praise to God continuously. This is the road to peace and wellbeing. The Lord wants us to live without strife. He will be right there with His hands out ready to help in every situation we face. This is a safe place.

2 PETER 3:14

So beloved, since you are expecting these things, be eager to be found by Him without spot or blemish, and at peace – in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts.
