Prince of Peace

Isaiah 9:6

He is God Almighty!!He is THAT mighty God in the Son. He reveals the Father’s glory to us!

The first proclamation was from the angels. They proclaimed “Peace on Earth, Good will to men”.

So many are trying to take God out of our nation. The world does not want Christ or to be a part of it!

Celebrating around the holidays can get hectic. WE want it to be like a Norman Rockwell painting. We all want to step into that painting and be a part of that family. There will not be a crazy uncle or cousin there to bother us or ruin it! As adults, we know what is going on in families, and the adult weight of responsibilities!  Kids don’t see it. They are in a place of bliss and do not have the memories we have as adults.

As we grow up, we tend to get away from the joy God has done in our life!  For some of us, it is a trying and difficult time. We long to go back to that time when we were a kid, where there was joy and happiness. But for adults, where did that joy go?

The only way to find peace , is in Jesus! For times of trouble—stay close to the Lord. We need to find peace on earth–good will.

God brigs people to the house of God… we can’t do it alone! I need you Jesus! Just like the boat on the Sea of Galilee, when the fishermen cried out to God as they thought they were drowning! All you need to do is call on the name of the Lord. Call on the name of the Lord and he will come running to you!!

What did He say to calm the boat and waves? “PEACE BE STILL”

We tend to look around and want God to just take away all our problems…BUT, God may give you peace through that storm!

God says ” My Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give to you.”

God’s hand is reaching for you! There is peace to be had. and Joy in the Holy Ghost !!
