Daily Devotional by Pam Ford Davis

The Answer

‘Where’d you get that?’

That’s a good question and it deserves an answer. We’ve all heard the query from time-to-time; someone’s interest is piqued by something we have. Ladies, you know it’s a compliment when a friend asks where you got your outfit or accessories. I won’t leave the men out; just ask any guy where he got that shiny new car, truck or bass boat.

‘Where’d you get that?’

I wonder if my faith has ever drawn anyone’s interest. Do they see a faith and peace in me that they’d like to experience?

‘Where’d you get that?’

Apostle Paul gave Timothy the answer.

“Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord (1 Timothy 1:2 HCSB).”

Grace, mercy and peace aren’t man-made. They come directly from God the Father and God the Son. God gives; we receive. They are manifested through the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, we must also follow the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25 HCSB).”

People are seeking peace.

‘Where’d you get that?’


“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful (John 14:27 HCSB).”
