“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
As we look around the world today, we all have to admit that there is very little resemblance of peace! Unrest is everywhere. Look at Venezuela, with no food on shelves; France were middle class can’r afford gas; caravans coming through Central America and the division in the United States. These are just a few of the things happening world wide! Realize, if we are looking at unrest, it will leave us distressed and depressed! We really need to look to the LORD and reflect His light.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
The world around us is really unrestful and unstable, and it is getting worse, as Jesus said it would (Read Matthew 24)! What should we do? Don’t panic and don’t stress. Yes, we see messes around us and we may even be in one. Look at it as an opportunity to reflect the glorious light of the LORD!
“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Remember, we have the hope of heaven and the world around us is filled with no hope! We have the light of Jesus and the promise that one day His government will be perfect, He is the Prince of Peace! So may His Shalom (Peace) be upon you today, have a blessed day reflecting His Peace!
