People around the world search for Peace.
God’s Covenant of Peace
I got out of bed, and I felt anxiety. Being ashamed about my past, I remembered how I lusted after forbidden things, disgusting images and behavior.
I went to my devotional bible and read from Isaiah. I could not find peace until I read the following passage in Isaiah.
“Do not fear, for you will no be ashamed;
Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
For you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach … but with great mercies will I gather you. …
But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you. …
But my kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall my covenant of peace be removed” (NKJV, 2011, Isaiah 54:4, 7, 8, & 19).
When I turn to Him for a loving relationship, I now know that God has made a covenant of peace with me . Even with the years that I have taken for recovery from pornography addiction, the Lord still has compassion on me.
