Psalm 34:14

"Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it." ESV

We all naturally seek after those things that satisfy the senses. We have been created that way. However, we have been made new creatures in Christ with authority over our own wills. The Word of God tell us to choose good and stay away from evil. We can no longer put the blame for our sins and wrongdoing on anyone or anything outside of ourselves. Wherever there is strife and turmoil, evil and temptation, we can freely look for the Godly, peaceful solution and go after it.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for allowing our old sinful natures to cause us to fall into the trap of sin and temptation to do those things that are displeasing to You. Give us openness to the Holy Spirit, to stand strong and be fully able and free to turn away from anything evil, and to run after Your peace. We pray in the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen.
