Day Nine: Peace

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.   — Romans 8:1-2

To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.  — Colossians 1:27

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God, and that you are not your own? — 1 Corinthians 6:19

I speak to you from the depths of your being. Hear me saying soothing words of Peace, assuring you of my Love. Do not listen to voices of accusation, for they are not from me. I speak to you in love tones, lifting you up. My Spirit convicts cleanly, without crushing words of shame. Let the Spirit take charge of your mind, combing out tangles of deception. Be transformed by the truth that I live within you.

The Light of my Presence is shining upon you, in benedictions of Peace. Let my Light shine in you; don’t dim it with worries or fears. Holiness is letting me live through you. Since I dwell in you, you are fully equipped to be holy. Pause before responding to people or situations, giving my Spirit space to act through you. Hasty words and actions leave no room for me; this is atheistic living. I want to inhabit all your moments – gracing your thoughts, words, and behavior.
