Monday, July 16 — Psalm 85:8–13
Deuteronomy 26:1–27:13; Luke 9:28–36

The Lord will bless his people with peace. Psalm 29:11 (NKJV)

You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, announcing the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. Acts 10:36 (NIV)

God of certainty and truth—we know that you have promised peace, but sometimes we can’t feel it. We ask that you help us to feel your peace, and to live in ways that carry that peace throughout the world. Amen.
