The God of Peace

May the God of peace be with you all. Amen. Romans 15:33

We are coming upon a time of the year when many people are
under a lot of stress from different sources. People have busier schedules,
spend more money, visit close relatives, and eat more than they should. Paul’s
prayer at the end of Romans 15 is as applicable today as when it was written.
They had stresses in Paul’s day that we don’t have now.

The Bible talks a lot about peace. In fact, one of our
Savior’s names is the Prince of Peace.

Of course, political leaders define peace as “the absence of
war,” but that’s not the peace I’m talking about. Peace is elusive. We know it
when we have it; we know it when we don’t. We don’t often know how to get it
when we don’t have it.

    Internal peace.

    Getting-a-sound-sleep peace.

    Having-a-clear-conscience peace.

    Knowing that all-is-well-with-your-soul peace.

You can’t buy that peace nor can you manufacture it.

May the God of peace be with you all. Rest completely in
that prayer.
