Prince of Peace

Do you know the Prince of Peace? There are so many things in a given day that can rob you of your peace. To know there is someone you can go to and can give you reassurance and direction in those moments is priceless. I can think of many times in life where I was feeling edgy, fearful, or uncertain about a particular thing and getting a Word of peace made all the difference.

What is peace? It is freedom from disturbance or agitation; as from fear, terror, anger, anxiety or the like; quietness of mind; calmness; quiet of conscience.
Have you heard people say it is not only what you know but who you know? Well I want to invite you into having close relationship with Jesus because He is the Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 states 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.

God desires you to walk in abiding peace throughout your entire day. Could you imagine that 24/7 at work, school, home and where ever you go His peace is with you.
If you praying about a particular thing and you are not for sure if you should take action or not, let the peace of Christ become your guide. Let it help settle issues. If you start to take that action and realize you don’t have any peace about it, don’t do it. Your sense of uneasiness can be a warning sign that you need to pay attention to.

Colossians 3:15

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]. To this peace indeed you were called as members in one body [of believers]. And be thankful [to God always]. Colossians 3:15 Amplified Bible

If you maintain a thankful and grateful heart you will find it much easier to hear the umpire of peace when He makes that call.

Isaiah 26:3

You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

Psalms 119:165

Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
