Isaiah 9:6-7 (NLT)
“ 6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 His government and its peace will never end……..”
Father the peace Jesus brings is personal because it calms our troubled hearts. It is practical because it is available to all who believe in him. And it is permanent because nothing in time and eternity will ever nor can ever destroy it. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Philippi: It is “God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand…..” Philippians 4:7 (NLT)
Thank you Father for this wonderful gift of peace and I pray, especially in this Christmas season, for the blessing of this peace on your people as Paul prayed in 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (NLT)
“….may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation……”
In the name of him alone who is our Savior and Peace, Jesus.
