“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)
Used as salutation by Jews at meeting or parting, meaning “peace.”
Peace. That one word is sought after by billions all over this world. Peace of mind. Peace from war. Peace in the midst of suffering. All of us long for peace; unfortunately, many people miss the source of true peace.
“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
Many years before the coming of Jesus, the prophet Isaiah spoke the words above. He was proclaiming the coming Messiah who would be the Prince of Peace. The peace that He brings is true Shalom and means far more than our concept of comfort and rest. Shalom describes safety, well being, health, prosperity, peace, rest and wholeness. Shalom is what Christ came to offer. Through Christ, we can find rest from having to work for Heaven. We are made whole in our relationship with God and have security in our salvation. We also have a peace that is available to us in the middle of life’s storms as we learn to trust and walk in obedience to our King. Are you without peace? Seek the Prince of Peace in every area of your life and you will find His Shalom waiting for you in abundance.
“God is a God of Shalom or peace.”
Heavenly Father, I praise You for the love You have shown me and the peace You offer me. Father, help me to seek You in everything and to trust You with every area of my life. As I do this, I pray that I would experience Your Shalom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
