PEACE IN A FOXHOLE

Isaiah Chapter 26 Verse 3     You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

Proverbs Chapter 22 Verse 6    Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Romans Chapter 10 Verse 13    For “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.”

The other day on the radio I heard a story of a veteran who was in the midst of a fierce battle.  Danger and death loomed all around him and a paralyzing fear gripped his heart.   But then all his Christian upbringing came before him, and he called on the name of the LORD.   He said, “Dear Jesus, if I am going to die, please take me to be with You.”    Amidst the calamity all around him, a peace (a peace that the world cannot give) filled his heart and his mind.

That day his soul was saved, and he lived to tell about it!   The Word of the LORD is “Yes and Amen!”

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary

Peace

Psalm 119 Verse 165     Those who love Your law have great peace, and nothing causes them to stumble.     (NASB)

Isaiah Chapter 26:3    Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee:  because he trusteth in Thee.     (KJV)

Philippians Chapter 4 Verses 6-7    Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made know to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.      (NASB)

At Wednesday night Bible study, our Pastor taught on the topic of “The LORD is Peace” from Judges 6:24.   How can we have peace?   By putting our trust in the LORD.  You cannot purchase peace; real peace; a peace that transcends all understanding.  We have a Heavenly Father, who created the universe.   He created us; He knitted us together in our mother’s womb.   He knows all about us.   He gave us the Bible –  His written word – so we can learn of Him.   He is Peace!   One of the names of Jesus is the “Prince of Peace”.   Before Jesus went to the cross He told His disciples in John 14:27 – “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.”   Life was not easy for the disciples after the crucifixion and resurrection.   But Jesus told them not to worry; He was giving them HIS perfect peace.

Do you crave that type of peace today?  Be anxious for nothing today and allow HIS peace to overwhelm you as you worship the PRINCE OF PEACE!

In Christ,

Stephen and Mary
