The way to enjoy life

1 peter 3:10-11 AMP

For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days [good–whether apparent or not] keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile (treachery, deceit). Let him turn away from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace (harmony; undisturbedness from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts) and seek it eagerly. [Do not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellowmen, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!]

Some will say that to be a born again Christian,  you have to carry your cross and suffer. But the Word clearly tells you that God want you to live an happy, fulfilling life so i choose  the happy way. But to enjoy life and see good days we must be at peace others, ourselves, and with God. You first make the decision to do that then you persue and go after it. Pursuing and going after includes a process. You are not gonna get harmony with everyone with your decision, you pray about it, study the Word to know what God says about the subject. It’s a process in which we get better at it with the help of God. I want to write a bit with being at peace with yourself: Not a lot a people like themselves, they think something is wrong with their personality or their physical being. Let me tell you that as a believer, you can and ought to live all those ideas aways.You are what the Bible says that you are and you can do what It says you can do. Also, when you dislike who you are, do you realize that you are (probably not intentionally)  telling God that He made mistakes when He made you? It is extremely important for you to grasp the fact that you are God’s masterpiece and there is nothing wrong with you. When you raisonably love yourself, it makes it much easier to live in harmony with others. Being in harmony with others is not never getting mad at someone, it’s  not acting on that anger. Go take a walk or in another room and pray that God will calm you and the another person down. Become unashamed of saying Sorry. Remember that God loves the other person as much as He loves you. Don’t go to bed at night still filled with anger.Keep in mind that the power of life and death are in the tongue,  for that i say this biblical prayer every day, it goes like this : Please God today set a guard over my mouth and set guard at the door of my lips in Jesus name. Being at peace with God for me is letting Him be Who He is in you and your life. Surrender, yield, desire to change to become more like Him, study the Word, spend time with Him (the amount of time is really not important), don’t  be just a Christian on Sunday, don’t also limit the time you spend with God to just in the morning but talk to him all through the day.If I may just quote Joyce Meyer, pray that God will reduce you to love. Because the way i see it, being at peace with yourself, others and God can very well be love yourself, others and God. The more you love God the more you will want to flee from evil. And never forget that God’s mercy renews itself every morning and your weapons are the Word and prayer or pray the Word. Use those weapons everyday!💖
