Heavenly Father, I lift up my words to You through the great and powerful Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. You created all things to be perfect and to exemplify Your glory. However, man has made Your perfect creation take on the stains of our transgressions, and sin has left the world in a state of perpetual chaos. Thank you that You are our peace and comfort in the storms of life. It is because of Your Son (Jesus) dying on the cross and being resurrected that I can have “peace with God” and “the peace of God.”
In Isaiah 9:6b in the Bible, You describe Jesus as the “Prince of Peace.” What a beautiful description that is. It is a great blessing that You show me in Philippians 4:4-6 how to have the peace that is expressed in verse 7. Direct me to practice verses 4, 5, and 6 to be blessed with Your peace. Philippians 4:4-6 “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.“
Thank you that when all else around me is crumbling, I can turn to You, “The Prince of Peace,” knowing that Your love never fails, and no one can separate me from Your love. Remind me often that the same power that resurrected Jesus from the grave is available today to give me peace with others. Psalm 29:11 “The LORD will give strength to His people; the LORD will bless His people with peace.” I ask that You bless me with Your perfect peace. Amen.
