Come Prince of Peace

There is not so much peace on earth, but there is on earth peace within those who are filled with the spirit of the Prince of Peace.

The more we are filled with the presence of the Prince of Peace, the more at peace we will be with our past, our future, and we will be filled with the capacity to remain peaceful in the present moments of our everyday lives. As we remain closely connected to the Prince of Peace, we will be carriers of His peace to the glory of God.

🗝Know Jesus – Know PEACE

🗝No Jesus – No Peace

🗝The Gift of PEACE — priceless to us, but costly to Jesus

Know – from the Greek word “ginosko” – to know intimately through personal experience. This kind of knowing is more than just knowing who a person is or recognizing their name. This kind of knowing goes beyond a religious form with no heart connection. This knowing involves knowing the heart, the character, and the desires of another person. When we know Jesus through a personal relationship, we know His heart, His character and His desires through His Word. This knowing involves daily talking with, walking with, listening and following the voice of the Lord through His infallible Word and the guidance of His Holy Spirit. This is what Jesus referred to in John 8:32 when He said you will “know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”

John 14:6

Shalom – Completeness, wholeness, peace, health, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony; the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb, Shalom, meaning “to be complete, perfect, and full.” Thus shalom is much more than the absence of war and conflict; it is the wholeness that the entire human race seeks. The word shalom occurs about 250 times in the Old Testament (see Psalm 4:8; Isaiah 48:18; Jeremiah 29:11 [“good”]). In Psalm 35:27, God takes delight in the shalom (the wholeness, the total well-being) of His servant. In Isaiah 53:5, the suffering Messiah was beaten to bring us shalom. The angels understood at His birth that Jesus was to be the great peace-bringer, as they called out, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” (Luke 2:14-17; compare Isaiah 9:7).*

When we receive the greatest gift of Christmas which is Jesus, we receive His amazing saving grace. When we surrender to Him as Lord of our lives and follow His Word, we receive pure, peaceable wisdom which leads to life and life abundantly. (John 10:10; Isaiah 1:19; Psalm 37:23)

Peace is found in the person of Jesus Christ – the greatest gift of Christmas — …for He Himself is our peace (Ephesians 2:14). He will keep us in peace as we keep our hearts and minds focused on Him, especially during this wonderfully full time of the year.

Prayers for all to encounter, receive and be freshly filled with PEACE from the Prince of Peace, especially at Christmas.

Come Prince of Peace and fill us fresh and anew with Your supernatural peace. Amen.
