He will be our peace.
Seven hundred years before the birth of Jesus, Micah prophesied about the birth of Jesus saying that a ruler would come from Bethlehem, “And he will be our peace.” Micah 5:5.
Notice – it doesn’t say ‘a source of peace’.
Jesus is our peace. Period.
Do you feel that in your life?
I don’t find peace in the things that so many people here on earth think are so important.
I have not found peace with money and success.
I have not found it in relationships other than my relationship with God.
Buying things has definitely not given me peace since things break and grow old – no longer shiny, no longer ‘the latest’.
I have not found peace in education and achievements.
I love to travel and experience new things but that is not where I find peace.
Jesus is my only source of real Peace. I feel the peace he gives me down in the center of my soul.
I can trust him with everything and he has a perfect love for me. He has proven his love for me over and over in my life. He who never sinned became sin for me on the cross so that the price for my sins was paid and I can live with him forever.
My eternal life with Jesus has already started on this earth –
as he fills my life with the peace only he can give.
Thank you, Jesus
