Fri.-Sabbath, 3/24-26/17 Devotion

Yes! It is almost Sunday! We GET to go back to church. In order to help us get ready for worship, here is Thomas Watson, from his "A Body of Divinity" book. . . .

"What shall we do to attain [God's] blessed peace?

"Let us ask it of God. He is the God of peace; He beats back the roaring lion; He stills the raging of conscience. If we could call all the angels out of heav-en, they could not speak peace without God. The stars cannot make day without the sun; none can make day in a dark deserted soul, but the Sun of Righteousness. As the wilderness cannot water itself, but remains dry and parched till the clouds drop their moisture, so our hearts cannot have peace till He infuse it, and drop it upon us by His Spirit. Therefore pray, 'Lord, You who are the God of peace, create peace; You who are the Prince of peace, command it. Give me that peace which may sweeten trouble, yea, even the bitter cup of death.’ "
