Thought For Today: “God’s Needed Peace”
As we watch the news, we see a world in desperate need of peace. There are wars, coups, uprisings, kidnappings, slave trade, terror threats, bombings, and violence in every nation. We are seeing children killing each other, or like so many they are ending their lives before they even have a chance to live.
Even in the city known as the city of peace, Jerusalem, there’s been continual conflict. Here’s a city claimed by most every religion, and none of them can arrive at a true and lasting peace. How sad is that!
Shalom peace, the peace of God is what the world needs, but it’s what the world can never fully achieve, and that’s because we fail to go to the real source of Shalom, the real source of peace, and that is God.
You see, peace is a gift of God who is Himself peace personified (Hebrews 13:20) In the high priestly prayer it says, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
In 2 Thessalonians 3:16 the Apostle Paul gives the same blessing saying, “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way.”
So, it’s not the peace of man that’s needed, it’s God’s peace.
