Prince of Peace
In the world today we see such a lack of peace and such an excess of conflict. This lack of peace can come in forms that are both external and internal and can sometimes overwhelm us.
Jesus mission was to restore us in relationship with God, to achieve our peace and restoration with Him. Jesus also instructed us in living at peace with each other, on how to be peacemakers. Ultimately by God’s grace we are also able to live with peace within us as well. Many things in our lives are beyond our control and require us to let go of the reigns and give them over to God. Our peace therefore is directly dependent on our relationship with God and on how much we trust His love for us, His good intention toward us, and His ultimate plan for us.
Do you value your peace enough to let go of your fears and anxiety? Have you chosen yet to cast your cares on God?
