To have peace, joy and contentment where you live regardless of political or economic environment, follow God’s simple Instructions to the Israelites when they were in captivity. The Lord would say: Don’t be anxious about anything, Settle down; make a home for yourselves, plant gardens & enjoy what they produce.
Raise your family in a manner that pleases Me. Be fruitful & increase, enjoy your children & grandchildren. Seek the peace and prosperity of the city where you are living.
Pray for it, because if it prospers, you will prosper too. (Adapted from Jeremiah 29:5-7).
Keep in mind that the Israelites were in captivity because of their persistent misdeeds, and yet God guarantees an answer to their prayers if they would pray for the prosperity health and peace of cities they lived in.
How much more will God answer our prayers for our cities in our day! Be Encouraged. -JSP
