Lord, I come to You through Your Son’s Name to thank You for the endless peace and grace You give. Even many years before Jesus was born, it was prophesied that He would be the Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a Child is born, unto to 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.” It is because of Your Son Jesus dying on the cross and His resurrection for our sins and failures that we have the privilege of having peace with You. Romans 5:1 “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Thank you that because of my personal relationship with Jesus, I can truly enjoy the peace of God dwelling in me. John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
It is Your peace within me that allows me to have peace in situations and with people around me. Mark 9:50b “Have peace one with another.” It is such a blessing to have You bring clarity to my confusion, hope to my suffering, and peace to my turmoil. I know that these verses and others allow me to rest secure in You as my source of comfort and peace. I rest in Your promise in Psalm 4:8. “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”
Thank you for the privilege of coming to You in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
