January 31st 2019 – Shalom

“For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” (1 Corinthians 14:33)

sha·lom
SHäˈlōm,SHə-/

shalom
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.”

Prayer:

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.

November 12th 2016 – Shalom of God

“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:1-3)

Peace is mentioned over 400 times in the Bible. The Hebrew word for peace is Shalom, which means wholeness and health in every area of life. The Apostle Paul used an interesting salutation in most of his letters: “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” I have never met anyone who claimed they had enough peace in their life. All of us want more peace, but sadly enough, most are not willing to go to the Source, which is God. Christian, if you are not at peace in your life, the fault lies squarely with you. No one has the power or authority to take away your peace. You have to give them that power; you have to give them that authority. Whether it is the difficult boss or the unexpected bill, giving your peace away is, quite frankly, your choice.

(John 16:33) “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

(Matthew 11:28)”Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

How wonderful is the peace of grace. You can lay your head down on your pillow at night because you have peace with God. How incredible is that? You cannot find that anywhere except at the cross. In Jesus, there is grace and peace. In the world, there is tribulation. Which do you choose?

“Jesus gives us peace. We can give our peace away or we can keep our peace.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for giving me grace and peace. Forgive me for times when I have turned my peace over to frustration or anger. You love me and You have forgiven me. My peace is secure in You. In Jesus’ name. Amen
