Jer 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God,

The Old Covenant was the Law of Moses.  They had to write these laws and memorize the laws.  Jesus came to fulfill these laws.  When we believe in and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God’s law is written in our mind and heart.  If we listen to Him, if we heed what He says, if we wait for His peace before any action we will not go astray.  Our problem is we are slow to check in with Him and fast to act or talk.  We don’t wait to see if we have God’s peace about the action or the talk.  We find out afterward by a lack of peace.  God does not intend us to move so fast that we have no time to include Him.  Our business and we are the source of many of our problems.  Let’s slow down and walk at a pace we can stay next to God.
