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.
In a world filled with violence, hatred, division, confusion, uncertainty and chaos, it’s no wonder so many people are lacking peace. The suicide rate is up, businesses are closing and the feeling of hopelessness is only enhanced during the Christmas season as many try their best to cope. Praise be to God for the gift of His Son! Among the names we see above, one which stands out is The Prince of Peace. We can experience peace in these stressful days as we trust the One who is Peace…..the babe in the manger, Jesus!
Dear Jesus, please flood my soul with Your peace! Help me to always keep my eyes on you and not on the happenings of the world. Amen.
