Goodness and Peace Gather

Faithful love and truth will join together; righteousness and peace will embrace. – (Psalm 85:10, HCSB)

God’s love will come together with His faithful people. Goodness and peace will greet them with a kiss. – (Psalm 85:10, ERV)

Unfailing love and truth have met on their way; righteousness and peace have kissed one another. – (Psalm 85:10, VOICE)

Where love and truth are found, righteousness and peace are present too. When we love and live in truth, we are living right and His peace is present within us. God is faithful to fill us with His goodness and love as we earnestly seek Him and pursue a life with Him leading. May we ever seek the Lord at the start of each new day, and trust Him to lead us in His love that fills us with truth, propels us along the right path, and surrounds us with His perfect peace, no matter what is going on around us.

Choose to seek the Lord,

He’s where love is found;

Faithful forever,

In Him, grace abounds.

He leads us in truth,

Shows us the right way;

Let us choose follow,

Throughout each new day.

It is in pursuit,

That we find His peace;

That settles our hearts,

God’s gracious release.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that as we seek You and Your ways, You fill us with love and truth, and lead us to walk in Your way as You fill us with Your peace. Forgive us for the times that we do not seek or we simply do not follow what we are supposed to do. Teach us to turn to You in trust and to listen to Your leading. Show us how to love those around us faithfully and with abundant grace. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we seek to follow after You and praise You for Your perfect peace that fills us. Amen.

Turn away from evil and do what is good; seek peace and pursue it. – Psalm 34:14
