Perfect Peace Bible Reading Summary Week 2

Searching for peace? Join the daily #perfectpeace Bible reading! Check out the summary for this week's reading...

Welcome to the Perfect Peace Bible Reading Summary Week 2! Wow, what a fabulous week of reading. I experienced many new thoughts about how we can obtain and maintain peace in our lives. I hope you did too! Let’s take a look at the week of reading:

Psalm 4:1-8

One way to be sure that you have peace? Hold your words. Wow, isn’t this so much easier to say than do? I love what the verse says about pondering in your own place. I know for me, this means shutting out noise and listening to the quiet. It is in the quiet that I can hear his still small voice the best.

One way to have peace? Hold your tongue. #perfectpeace #onemorestep #biblereading

Job 5:17-27

Job’s friends had a few issues. They were great and then they weren’t. In this particular passage, I feel like Eliphaz is speaking eloquently and he actually hits the nail on the head. He talks about everything God has done in the past for Job. One of the best ways I know to have peace is to look back on all that God has accomplished in your life. When we reflect on what he has done for us, then we can have peace that our future is in the palm of his hand as well.

Psalm 120:1-7

What a peace-promising psalm! The end of the psalm doesn’t seem too promising as the writer talks about how much he wants peace and how everyone else wars on. But the entire psalm is alluding to the first verse.

In my distress I called to the LORD,and he answered me.

Did you  notice the subtitle of the psalm? “A Song of Ascents” These psalms were songs that were sang as the people walked to Jerusalem to worship. Think about the reflective journey they took as they took steps to the temple. And the bottom line? God answers prayers requesting peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:8-22

In times that stream everything except for perfect peace , we can be assured that God is in control. When things seem out of control, God is always in control.

Psalm 85:1-13

Yes there are holy stirrings in our hearts that move us forward. But that negative voice that begins in a whisper and grows to a roar, telling us that we will never make it and we are not good enough? That voice is not the Father. Our Father voices peace incomprehensible.

Yes, there are holy stirrings in our hearts that move us forward. But that negative voice that begins in a whisper and grows to a roar, telling us that we will never make it and we are not good enough? That voice is not the Father. Our Father voices peace incomprehensible.

Proverbs 3:13-22

Where wisdom walks, the path is peaceful...another beautiful reason Solomon encouraged his son to seek wisdom above all else #perfectpeace #biblereading #onemorestep

Isaiah 9:1-7

The notes sound out in my mind as the lyrics to the great Hallelujah Chorus echo. We often celebrate these words at Christmas, but the Prince of Peace? He wants to reign in our hearts in every season of life, 24/7.

    I just LOVED Psalm 120:1-7! The GREAT reminder that not only does He hear us, He DOES answer us. I forget that sometimes it feels like He’s not answering me when in fact He’s telling me to wait. I want a definite yes or no from God in times of distress when I need to learn to be thankful for those times He’s telling me to wait. God DOES have an answer for me, am I willing to wait for it or forgo God’s plan & follow mine? (Sarah? We know how that ended 🙂

  2. Job 517-27
    A great way to focus on positive thoughts which then leads to peace.
    Thanks for all you do in this website-it has been a blessing to me in my walk of faith.

  3. I just wanted to say that I really enjoy this site. You do a wonderful job sharing quotes.The photos you have chosen for the different Bible passage are beautiful . The messages are well thought out. And I have copied many of them down to share with my Bible study group.
    There is just one thing that I feel takes away from the photos and quotes. And I am just asking, not criticizing. Why is it that your names is written the same size as the bibles quotes and the different books of the Bible? If you feel the need to have your name included in with these Bible passages, could your names perhaps be printed a little smaller ?
    My comments were not written to hurt your feelings, or to be insulting in any way what so ever. Perhaps you didn’t realize it.

    1. Hi Jean! I’m not sure if I understand exactly what you mean, but I think you are talking about the instagram posts that I include each Friday. Since I manage everything on the site, these are quickly posted to Instagram each day and I actually do not control the font size of any of the words. They are automated on an app. I’m sorry that you feel my name is too large. I will try to pay more attention to this in the future, but just know that I receive a lot of requests and can’t always fulfill each one. I think I understand your point of view.

    Proverbs 3:17
    Reminded me of the peace we have when following closely the wisdom of God.

  5. Hannah Jackson says:
