For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Read: Isaiah 9:2-7
9:2 The people that walked in
darkness have seen a great light:
they that dwell in the land of the
shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
9:3 Thou hast multiplied the
nation, and not increased the joy:
they joy before thee according to
the joy in harvest, and as men
rejoice when they divide the spoil.
9:4 For thou hast broken the
yoke of his burden, and the staff
of his shoulder, the rod of his
oppressor, as in the day of
9:5 For every battle of the
warrior is with confused noise,
and garments rolled in blood; but
this shall be with burning and
fuel of fire.
9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
government shall be upon his
shoulder: and his name shall be
called Wonderful, Counsellor, The
mighty God, The everlasting
Father, The Prince of Peace.
9:7 Of the increase of his
government and peace there
shall be no end, upon the throne
of David, and upon his kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it
with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will
In recent times, the entire world
has been troubled by one thing or the other. Government of
nations all over the world have
explored all avenues and
different theories to solve their
problems, yet the crises increase.
So many budgets are being voted by members of different groups
all in the name of providing
peace, and the more the
investment of time, meetings,
mediations and reconciliations,
the less the solutions. Until we come back to where we have missed it, we will just keep reinventing the wheel.
Also, individuals go through different forms of troubles and worries with no solution. There is nothing like an atmosphere of
peace either in a nation or in the
life of an individual. It is the
greatest thing the world is
searching for today and it is the
best thing that can happen to a person.
Peace is saying no to violence
and creating room for harmony
and love. Those who do not have
peace cannot experience wellness of life. When there is no peace in a place, it exposes everyone to hostility and aggression, but where there is peace, there is rest of mind and tranquility.
I decree that you will find peace today in Jesus' name.
Finding peace is finding Jesus Christ. He came to restore the broken relationship between man and God. He came to reconcile us back to the Father. Jesus is the one who broke down every wall of partition
between us and God.
"For he is our peace, who hath
made both one, and hath broken
down the middle wall of partition
between us." Ephesians 2:14
No matter what you are going
through in your life, there is a
solution in Christ Jesus. In what
area are you experiencing
problems? Come to the Prince of
Peace and He will give you rest. Are you have troubles and fierce
storms in your marriage? Come
to Jesus and He will step into the
center of your home and give
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth, give I unto you. Let not
your heart be troubled, neither
let it be afraid." John14:27
There will be trying times in the
life of every child of God but you can be rest assured that in your
troubled times, you are not alone.
God will never allow the trouble
to overwhelm you. He will make
you experience calmness in the
situation. It is important you know that peace is not necessarily the absence of war, it is the presence of rest and calmness in the time of war.
Jesus will always bring light into
every darkness. He will always speak peace into every storm. He
presides over every unpleasant
situation of life so that you can
experience His peace.
Father let your peace overrule all my worries in Jesus' name.
