THE FAME OF HIS NAME 5

Download Audio Version☞ bit.ly/audio1744

Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
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.

A difference exists between an ordinary citizen trying to settle a quarrel and one who is backed by the law. I watched as two young men grappled and held each other by the throat amidst pleas from onlookers for them to stop. They held on until a police van pulled up on the scene. Immediately, the young men were separated and in no time the squabble was squelched. They may not have agreed yet but they knew better than to persist with the fighting.

Christ isn't just an arbiter of peace; He is The Prince of Peace. If an ordinary officer with limited authority can halt a warring situation, how much more one who is Royalty and bears all authority (Ps 46:9)?

Peace isn't necessarily the absence of war but it is the prevailing calmness even in the midst of war which comes only from God (Phil 4:6-7). It isn't ordinary and we do not deserve it, but it came at the highest cost, paid in full by Christ Jesus. Therefore, by believing and receiving Him as our peace, we soar over the battles of life.

Go into today remembering that you serve the prince of peace.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to speak peace into every storm in or around your life.

Confession: My life is ruled by God’s peace. The peace of the Lord that passes all understanding fills my heart. All things in my life are working according to God’s plan, in Jesus name. Amen.
 —Chibo E.C.
